Sansa Stark was whisked away from the scene of the crime by Ser Dontos, only to watch him fall at the hands of Littlefinger, whom she now must trust to sail her home.
In a new interview with Access Hollywood, Sophie Turner discusses Sansa’s reaction to Joffrey’s death, and how she’s feeling about Dontos and her new saviour, Littlefinger.
AccessHollywood.com: Do you think Sansa is relieved at all by Joffrey’s death?
Sophie Turner: I mean, she’s definitely relieved. The thing is, is that he was the main kind of factor that was keeping her in King’s Landing, but then there’s all the other people like Cersei and Jaime and she’s still in a marriage to Tyrion. I mean, everyone still wants her to be kept prisoner, so there was definite relief, but she knows that there’s no way that she can escape them – and she does!
Access: With the help of Ser Dontos. How do you think she feels when she finds out Ser Dontos was full of baloney?
Sophie: Well, I think the thing about Ser Dontos is he has like a genuinely good heart. He’s a drunk and he doesn’t know what he’s doing. He didn’t do anything really to offend Sansa. He’s just doing what he thinks is right because he knows in the end that she’s gonna get out, and I think Sansa knows that and she feels a lot of compassion towards him, especially because of like at the beginning of Season 2, when he had to drink all that wine. Poor guy.
