Last night at Entertainment Weekly‘s SAG Awards party, the actress spoke with the magazine about what’s to come on Game of Thrones this year.
Turner says this will be the “biggest season yet” with “so many shocks, it’s massive.”
As for her character, “I mean this season is a really, really big one for Sansa,” the actress teases. “It’s probably her best season yet. It’s her really coming into her own. She, this season, really commands the respect that she deserves and she grabs hold of it and she runs with it and it’s really good.”
According to Turner, viewers will “finally getting that storyline that you’ve been craving for the past five seasons.” She says, “It was amazing because the past five seasons, it feels like it’s been building up and up to that.[…] You can only suffer so much before she finally gets her, the respect that she deserves.”
