Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams tease season 4 storylines

Game of Thrones Season 4 Spoilers: Sansa Becomes a "Powerhouse Character" — Exclusive
By REBECCA MARTIN

The fact that Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) made it to Game of Thrones Season 4 in one piece is basically a miracle. Naive and timid, Sansa spent three seasons as the pawn in other people's games. But when Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Sophie Turner at the Christian Siriano Fall/Winter 2014 Collection show during New York Fashion Week, she promised that things are about to change for her character in a big way.

"There's a kind of big evolution [for Sansa in Season 4]," Sophie dished. "She begins to kind of manipulate the people who have done wrong to her in her past. She becomes a powerhouse character but in a very subtle way. It's really good."


Is Sophie excited about the new direction Sansa has taken? Of course! "I feel like I've been waiting for a moment where I can manipulate the people that have come before me, so it was like I had been waiting for it for so long. It was a release."

As for the season on a whole, Sophie promise "shocking stuff" and "more deaths, of course, because it's Game of Thrones."


Since we were at fashion week, we couldn't resist asking which Game of Thrones cast member has the best fashion sense when they're walking around the real world instead of Westeros. When we talked to Maisie Williams (Arya), she singled out Sophie, explaining that her on-screen sis "looks awesome all the time. She's got it right." Sophie returned the compliment, picking Maisie as the best off-screen dresser.

It sounds like both Stark girls are getting more dangerous this season, but in real life, they're clearly just as sweet as ever!

Game of Thrones Season 4 Spoilers: Maisie Williams on Arya's "Scarier" Side — Exclusive
By REBECCA MARTIN

Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) has been a Game of Thrones fan favorite since the moment the rambunctious tomboy showed off her proficiency with weapons at Winterfell, and over the first three seasons she's continued to win hearts with her quips and sword skills. Now, you need to prepare to see the beloved character take a darker turn in Season 4 .

Wetpaint Entertainment had a chance to catch up with Maisie Williams at the Christian Siriano Fall/Winter 2014 Collection fashion show at New York Fashion Week, and the young star dished about what we can expect from Arya when HBO's fantasy epic returns in April.

"We've seen this kind of fun loving Arya who says it as it is and makes jokes, but this year she's starting to change and we're starting to see different sides to her," Maisie explained. "I don't know how people are going to react. They might love it, they might hate it, but I think she's becoming a lot more powerful in this world where women are getting bashed aside."

So, when Maisie says "more powerful," what does she mean? While she wouldn't spill specifics, she did hint that playing Arya this season was "more of a challenge" than in the past, because while tapping into Arya's sarcastic side came naturally — "that's kind of my go-to thing when I get nervous anyway!" — this season she had to channel a "scarier" side of the character that's "very different."

Arya's not the only thing that's changed this season. "There's not a big finale," Maisie added. "There's things dripped throughout, so it's not just leading up to the ending. There's other little twists in between." But don't worry, she's confident fans will "really, really like it."

While dress-hating Arya would probably fall asleep at a fashion show, Maisie also gushed that she's been having a blast at her first fashion week. "It's been amazing!" she told us. "I enjoyed it so much. I love the music. Christian [Siriano] as a person is absolutely hilarious and I love, love his clothes so I'm just thrilled to be here."

Part of me doesn't trust what Sophie is saying just because she's known for talking around storylines so as not to spoil. But given where it's headed, the manipulation bit is interesting.
