Extremely victorious series of HBO, Game of Thrones left its spectators surprised after a shocking transformation in Sophie Turner’s character as Sansa Stark.
Life hasn’t been easy for Sansa Stark; from watching her father die to Joffrey’s tortures and her marriage with Tyrion Lannister , among other tragedies, the girl has seen and survived it all. The eldest Stark daughter has been a punching bag, a victim for nearly four seasons. But time has changed and she’s transformed from an innocent girl to a much darker character.
Sansa was an idealistic young teen, innocently in love with the idea of being a princess.
Tortured every day of her life since the death of her father, Sansa was forced to put up with the tyrant Joffrey’s sadistic treatment.
After being tortured by Joffrey Baratheon she is forcibly married to Tyrion Lannister.
Sansa goes along with Littlefinger’s schemes.
Sansa fell victim to sexual assault by Ramsay Bolton.
The British actress, Sophie Turner told the media that opting to change her dress and hair colour was “a very conscious decision for her to kind of get away from her mother’s Tully roots.” She also wanted to “completely change everything everyone has ever known about her” with her “massive transformation”.
The young star also admitted, “There’s no Sansa left behind, and I think not just in the way that she appears but in the way that she’s thinking now. How she’s become this, like, massive manipulator in a way”
It seems that Sansa will finally begin taking control of her own destiny and come into her role as a strong adult woman of Westeros. This will be her season.
The young star added about her transformation and role, “It’s the most exciting thing in the world receiving these scripts because every season there’s a new version of Sansa. She’s like a snake; at the end of every season, she sheds a skin.”
