Thanks to intrepid photographer PAP4U, everyone can breathe a sigh of relief. Sophie Turner, aka Sansa Stark, is once more sporting her character’s signature red hair.

Turner turned heads (pun intended) this off-season when she reverted back to her natural blonde hair for a role in Huntsville, where she’ll play an American teenager. Some fans saw this and started to worry that Sansa would have limited screentime during Season 7. Happily, she’s reverted to form.
Here’re all of the new images PAP4U posted. They also include shots of Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne), and Bella Ramsey (Lyanna Mormont).

Of note: Turner usually dyes her hair for filming, but this year she’s wearing a wig. Turner has yet to wear a full wig, though she has occasionally worn hair pieces, most notably the top braids in this shot from Season 1.
Previously, PAP4U posted photographs of folks like Kit Harington, Daniel Portman, Aidan Gillen, and others on the set at Linen Mills Studios in Banbridge, Northern Ireland. All of those photographs were allegedly taken on the same day: September 23rd. Odds are that the pics of Turner are also from that day. It looks like the the whole Winterfell crew was together.
As you may recall, PAP4U also captured a few images that qualify as SPOILERS. Turn back now if you don’t want to know more.
PAP4U snapped photos of both Isaac Hempstead Wright and Maisie Williams on the same set on the same day, suggesting that Arya and Bran will return to Winterfell at some point during Season 7. Now, we’ve seen Sophie Turner there, too. Is a Stark family reunion imminent?
Beyond that, PAP4U snapped a few more photos of Turner on set. Here she is bonding with Bella Ramsey…
…and here she is leaving the set after a long day of wearing that wig.
