Sophie Turner: (on how her and co-star from Game of Thrones get along) We spent so much time together, you might expect us to get bored of each other or get a bit cranky but we never do. We have such a fun time. The other day Maisie actually came over to my house to spend the weekend with me. We did normal things: We went bowling, we rented a few films, we went shopping, the normal girly things.
Sophie Turner: (on how the fans respond to her Game of Thrones character Sansa) I think the fans of the books and of the television show are angry at her. People who haven't dug deep enough into the character can't really see the good intentions in Sansa's decisions
Sophie Turner: (on her Game of Throne's character Sansa) She's a complete romantic and lives in a fantasy world. She just wants to be the girl that her father and her mother expect her to be. She just wants to make her family proud, and her good intentions can be manipulated, mainly by Joffrey. I think she's very immature for her age and she needs a wake-up call.
Sophie Turner: (on approaching her character Sansa) I am very dedicated to the role, so in the morning before filming, I tend to be quite quiet, not only because I'm tired but because I need to start and finish the day as Sansa and so I don't tend to talk much or think about my life too much. Although, when I am on set, I am quite able to slip in and out of my character quite easily.
Sophie Turner: My mum has been an influence on me in the way that she is a very independent woman who never has to fall back or rely on other people and she can always find her own way.
Sophie: (on her costumes for Game of Thrones) I was most definitely in girl-heaven! I had no idea that the costumes would be so complex, there was SUCH brilliant and intricate detail on the dresses! Even the corset that I wear underneath my clothes at King's Landing that you never see has beautiful dragonflies embroidered on it.
Sophie Turner: (what happens after a typical day of shooting Game of Thrones) After a long day of shooting the first thing that we would do is ring up the Williams and the Hempstead-Wrights to meet up at the hotel bar and the mums would all enjoy a Hendrix gin and tonic whilst Maisie, Isaac and myself would be playing card games.
