Sophie Turner is featured in the newest edition of UK InStyle, sharing with the magazine her fashion sense and details about growing up in Warwickshire.
The actress touches upon a few Game of Thrones items in the interview such as her co-stars and a couple hints at season 5.
Of the actress that plays Margaery Tyrell, Turner says, “Just before my 16th birthday, Natalie Dormer said to me, ‘As soon as you turn 16, you’re going to work adult hours, people will try to take advantage of you, so it’s important not to be a pushover.’ Now I’m a total pushover and I let people work me too hard so, in hindsight, that was probably some very good advice!’
As for season 5, Turner says, “Well, there’s a lot of death – as always! I’m also really excited for Arya’s storyline. But in terms of my character Sansa, let’s just say she spots a few familiar faces…”
Speculation with spoilers from Season 5 filming below the cut!
This remark is interesting because we’ve had interviews recently from other cast members hinting at seeing someone they’ve seen before (Alfie Allen) and that we can expect big changes and travels through the Vale of Arryn (via Aidan Gillen).
There’s been heavy speculation that Sansa may wind up at Winterfell near Theon and Ramsay, but it’s worth noting in late July, Brienne and Pod were spotted filming scenes close to Sansa, Littlefinger and several knights of the Vale, around Sallagh Braes in Northern Ireland. A direct interaction was not seen, but the shooting of the scenes were so close together that many fans speculated then that a meeting between these two parties might occur. Brienne and Pod would certainly be familiar faces to Sansa, from her time in King’s Landing. Turner could also be referring to minor characters from the Vale of Arryn such as Lady Waynwood or Lord Royce but it seems unlikely Turner would think it was notable to see them again.
So what do you think, readers? Sansa meeting Brienne and Pod in the Vale, or Ramsay and Theon (again) in the North? Or both? Anything’s possible this year.
