Sophie Turner has moved past the negativity towards her "Game of Thrones" character Sansa Stark.Turner explained why many find Sansa annoying or unlikeable and it has nothing to do with the character herself.
"I think it's because people see their own faults in her character, and they don't like facing their own weaknesses," Turner told Nylon. "I think if anyone was a 13-year-old girl put in her situation, they would probably act exactly the same. When I was younger, Maisie, who plays my sister, and I were in scenes together and people loved her character and they hated mine, and it really used to affect me."
Turner enjoys her storyline and the transformation of Sansa. Though her character is still very young, she's come to turns with the "Game of Thrones" and knows she's a key player.
"I really like the fact that she is quite a silent character," Turner said. "If she had spoken up in court at any point she would have gotten herself killed. She is being compliant with the people she hates just so that she can bide her time and then she can actually get her own back. It's fun because then a lot of the acting is in the face, and not in the words, which is nice for me to experiment with."
However, Turner admitted she isn't sure she would've been a "Game of Thrones" fan before joining the production. Turner was 13-years-old when she started working on the set, and wasn't allowed to read the novels except for Sansa's point-of-view chapters.
"The idea of medieval fantasy never quite intrigued me but I think because there has been a lot of hype about it, I may have watched an episode to see whether it got me," Turner told Nylon. "Because you're in it, you have no outside perspective, so I have no idea if it's actually a good show or not!"
