'Game of Thrones' Season 7: Sophie Turner Teases Sansa's Big 'Power Struggle' [VIDEO]
Sophie Turner is opening up about what fans can expect to see from Stansa Stark on the new season
She may have helped win Winterfell back for her family after they lost it back in season two, but keeping the territory back in Stark power won't be easy for Sansa (Sophie Turner) when Game of Thrones returns for season seven next year.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Turner reveals that while she and Jon (Kit Harington) are back in Winterfell with Jon now ruling as the King of the North things still won't be easy, especially as her role in helping defeat Ramsay Bolton, and surviving the torture he put her through, starts putting her on what the actress reveals is a bit of a power trip, but also threatens her because power is something she isn't used to having.
"She's seemingly in control for the first time-and it really suits her," she says in the interview. "She's kind of having a bit of a power trip. But she's also becoming more insecure, because there are threats to the power that she holds."
Turner didn't elaborate on the threats, though fans have been left to wonder if the look she shared with Littlefinger in the season six finale, as the Northern Lords all stood to declare Jon King of the North (even though it was Sansa's calling in the Knights of the Vale that helped them win the Battle of the Bastards), was indicative of some of that threat to any power she may or may not have.
However, she did admit that things definitely have a feel that indicate things are rapping up for the hit show, which is expected to finish its run after season eight, and will only consist of seven action-packed episodes in this new season.
"What overall excited me about this season is that main characters are coming together and it feels like things are ramping up," she said. "it's really exciting and all feels like it's coming to a big conclusion."
