Sophie Turner stood up for the divisive final season of Game of Thrones.
Sansa Stark has had her fair share of controversial moments throughout the series, but overall Turner revealed she found her character's arc to be one of resilience and bravery. In an interview with The New York Times, she also shared that she was disappointed with fans' negative reactions to the final season and the pushback the series has received.
The scene in question involves the Hound and Sansa's reunion at Winterfell.
"You've changed, Little Bird," The Hound starts. "None of it would have happened if you'd have left King's Landing with me. No Little Finger, no Ramsay, none of it."
"Without Little Finger and Ramsay and the rest, I would have stayed a little bird all my life," Sansa replies.
Hearing that dialogue, it does sound suspicious. But after listening to the actor's clarification of the scene, it's obvious that Turner attempted to showcase Sansa's strength and bravery above everything else.
In an interview during their press tour for Dark Phoenix, Turner and Chastain revealed they were satisfied with Sansa's conclusion.
Turner revealed that the one thing Sansa wanted throughout the whole series was to be home, and that it couldn't have ended more beautifully for her.
"I think watching the way this character finished Game of Thrones was the most satisfying," Turner said in the interview. "I agree with that," Chastain chimed in.
Now that Thrones is over, Turner will certainly focus on her upcoming superhero film, Dark Phoenix.
In the trailer for the upcoming movie, centered on Turner's Jean Grey, the origin story of Phoenix's powers are revealed. The movie will hit theaters on June 7. Even though Game of Thrones is over, it would seem like Turner's career is just beginning.
