"Game Of Thrones" Actress Sophie Turner Says Season 8 Is "Emotionally Torturous"

At this point, we wouldn't be surprised if Game Thrones killed everybody f in the last season and the showrunners allowed the white walkers to win. Of course, there should be some redemption for characters we watched evolve and progress in the last seven seasons, but who knows. The final season  Game Thrones has one last chance to shock fans into a catatonic state emotional depression by ripping away beloved characters and twisting plots in every angle possible. 

Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in the series, has had her ups and downs. In fact, up until this last season, Sansa only had downs. Her story has been filled with abuse and sadness, and it will be entertaining to watch Sansa turn some the pain she's endured back on the world. If she survives long enough. Turner recently sat down with Gold Derby to speak about the upcoming season and the path her character. “I always saw something a warrior in Sansa that I don’t think other people really saw,” began Turner. “I always had the feeling that she was learning and adapting, and very quickly, and at some point or another it was going to manifest itself somehow, and she manifested it into being a warrior. It felt really satisfying when it happened, and I’m really happy where this storyline for her has ended up.”

As far as the final season goes, Turner says it will be a bloody and emotional ride. “I can tell you that there’s definitely a coming together people,” she explains. “Everyone is coming together to fight the impending doom. There’s a lot tension between these little groups, battling for what they think is right. It’s ‘Game Thrones,’ so it’s going to be bloodier and more death and more emotionally torturous than all the years before!”
