Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner has revealed if she’s ever likely to reprise her role as Sansa Stark.

Well, don’t get your hopes up about seeing your favourite Queen of the North again anytime soon, as Sophie seems doubtful about returning for a spinoff if she was asked.

Asked if she would ever play Sansa again, Sophie told The Hollywood Reporter: “No. It’s time for me to say goodbye. She’s ended up in a place that I’m so happy with. I don’t know. It would be different if someone actually came and said, ‘We want to do a Sansa spin-off show’, but I’m pretty sure I’d say no. It’s been 10 years of watching this character grow, and she’s at her peak right now.”

Sophie continued: “I’m sure if she carried on and did a spin-off show, it would just be downhill from there.

“She’d have to go through some other terrible traumas or something, and I don’t want to do that.”

However, Sophie admitted that there are a few elements of Sansa that she would like to embrace as she goes forward in her acting career.

“I haven’t put her away at all,” she continued. “It’s her resilience and her strength that I’m going to carry with me.

“I’ve never felt more empowered as a character than I have with Sansa. I think she’ll stay with me for the rest of my life.

“All my formative years were spent playing Sansa. I think even if I tried, I couldn’t shake her off.”
