A lot of interviews have come out of the Game of Thrones cast’s trip to San Diego for Comic-Con, and until now they’ve done their best to keep any details about Season 5 close to their chests. Having just received the scripts for the upcoming season, in a new interview with The Wrap, Sophie Turner drops some hints about what we can expect from Sansa Stark.
When asked what position Sansa will find herself in during Season 5 after lying for Petyr Baelish, Sophie said, “Well now she’s kind of in the position where Baelish isn’t overly sure what Sansa’s about, he doesn’t really know why she stuck up for him. But he’s kind of realizing that she’s a great manipulator, and she’s not this vulnerable young girl anymore. And she’s also realized that she can manipulate him though other means, because now she realizes his weakness is kind of her, and her mother. She’s gonna try to play out her sexuality as much as she can to manipulate him. So that’s what she’s gonna do.”
She adds that the past three seasons have been leading up to this, and Sansa will finally be able to put what’s she learnt into use.
Sophie reveals that she starts filming Season 5 on Wednesday, and she will be shooting exclusively in Belfast this year.
She also talks about filming the Purple Wedding, and praises Lena Headey for her brilliant performance during Joffrey’s death. She says her favorite death scene so far has been the Red Wedding, and discusses her upcoming projects, accents, and walking around Comic-Con in a cat mask.
