In the official trailer of #game of thrones” Season 7, fans saw Sansa Stark (#Sophie Turner) being shrouded by anger while talking to Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish (Aidan Gillen). By the looks of it, it seems one of the Stark kids is about to turn her back on her brother, #Jon Snow (Kit Harington), for not giving her credits when she saved him in the Battle of the Bastards.

In an interview with Yahoo Style Singapore, the 21-year-old star talked about how her character and how Sansa will become the evil villain that everyone never expects. In fact, she even likened her role to Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) who will do everything to protect her family even if it means she has to kill.

Sansa turning into a big bad

"I can totally see her becoming a Cersei,” Sophie Turner told the publication. Just like the Mad Queen, she is now seeing her character being “driven mad” by the threats against her family. "They're both so family-obsessed and family-orientated,” she added.

They will both do anything for the people they love and with that, she now understands the Protector of the Realm why she does the terrible things that she does as she is afraid to lose the people that she loves.

Sansa has now changed from being the naïve, innocent girl, and often second best to a powerful leader. She is now seeking revenge on the people who have done wrong and betrayed her family. "She'll stop at nothing to protect them,” Sophie Turner warned.

If protecting their name means she has to be a heartless and brutal killer in “Game of Thrones” Season 7, then she is ready to be the evil lady that no one has seen yet.

In fact, the “X-Men: Apocalypse” star even thinks that Sansa’s transformation doesn’t really matter to her character as she strongly believes it is really meant to be that way.

Will Sansa die in ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7?

Moreover, Sophie Turner also talked about the relationship of Sansa and Jon Snow at the end of “Game of Thrones” Season 6.

The English actress narrated that her character felt frustrated as she worked hard to convince her brother of the right battle plan, but he just wouldn’t listen to her. Although she tried her best to save him, he was the one who had been hailed as the King of the North. She also felt offended that he didn't say a thing about her saving him.

And now that she is up for revenge, Sophie Turner is now afraid for Sansa to have the same fate like the other Stark kids who have met their demise. Even though she feels proud that her character's storyline is now developing, she’s afraid that she has reached her peak. “Does she die now? So who knows – maybe she does," she said.
