Sophie Turner says Game Of Thrones ending will ‘disappoint a lot of fans’


The Game of Thrones final season is coming up. It will consist of six episodes, each with a run time of roughly an hour and a half.

That's some glorious, gory, dragon-fulled goodness. But actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in the show has suggested that the series finale will split fans down the middle.

Speaking to IGN, the actress revealed her own reaction after reading the script for the last episode.

Sophie said: "[There were] a lot of tears. I think, you know, as an actor it was really satisfying – 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."

And as for how she thinks fans will react?

She added:

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, I think.

"I think 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."

During the interview, Sophie also hinted at what becomes of her character in the eighth series.

She added:

"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."
