LOS ANGELES, Aug. 19 (UPI) — Sophie Turner says Sansa will have “options” in Game of Thrones Season 7.
The 20-year-old English actress, who plays Sansa Stark on the HBO series, revealed in an interview with Variety that her character will have the choice of becoming a villain or hero in future seasons.
“I actually don’t know [what direction she’ll take] because of the way last season left off,” Turner said at the publication’s Power of Young Hollywood event.
“There are so many options,” she teased. “She could run with Littlefinger and become a villain and sadistic. Or she could also team up with her brother Jon.” Littlefinger and Jon Snow are played by Aiden Gillen and Kit Harington, respectively.
Game of Thrones will return for an abbreviated seventh season in mid-2017. The show, which is based on George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire book series, will come to a final close after Season 8.
“It’s really sad,” Turner said. “It’s really uncomfortable to think about my life without Game of Thrones. Not only has it been like a family — going to see a family every summer — but it’s also been a safety net.”
“When I finish this I don’t actually know what’s going to happen,” she admitted. “I might slip into a deep, deep depression because I won’t know what to do with myself. It’s going to be very strange. I feel people are going to miss it dearly.”
Gillen had told The Huffington Post in June that Littlefinger and Sansa will have “new potential” in Season 7. Season 6 ended with Jon being declared King of the North, although Sansa is technically the heir to Winterfell.
