Sophie Turner in a statement said that it’s likely that several fans will be left in disappointment by the ending of the popular HBO fantasy show, Game of Thrones which will be the eight season coming up in 2019. Sophie was promoting her upcoming film, Dark Phoenix, and when she was asked about GoT, and her character, Sansa Stark.
In an interview, Sansa was seen saying that, “I think for everyone, everyone’s storylines — to be able to act out the way that it all ends. It was really satisfying for us. Who knows if it will be satisfying for the fans. I think a lot of fans will be disappointed and a lot of fans will be over the moon.
It will be really interesting to see people’s reactions, but, for me, reading the script, it was just like heartbreaking to read at the very final page of the script it just says, ‘End of Game of Thrones’. That was really emotional,”
Turner also spilled the beans on how Sansa will emerge, evolve over the course of the final season. “She kind of takes ownership over who she is and what she stands for. Over the course of the series she’s been completely unaware of what she wants, where she wants to be, who she really is, and at the end of this season, I feel she is the most self-assured character in the show,” she further added.
Game of Thrones has been traditionally premiered around March and April, although the seventh session came out in July. It seems that for its short last season – the show will end with six huge episodes unlike the usual 10-HBO is targeting a similar release schedule
Earlier, Turner gave one of the rare details about the final season’s plot. “I can tell you that there’s definitely a coming together of people. Everyone is coming together to fight the impending doom. There’s a lot of tension between these little groups, battling for what they think is right. It’s Game of Thrones, so it’s going to be bloodier and more death and more emotionally torturous than all the years before,” she said.
The show based on George RR Martin’s popular series of books has received dozens of Primetime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series in 2015, 2016 and 2018, which is outstandingly more than any other prime-time scripted television series. Several offshoots are in the process, with one having been officially approved.
