Game Of Thrones star Sophie Turner has said the show’s final season will be “bloodier” and “more emotionally torturous.”
The final series of the HBO show will arrive on screens in 2019.
Speaking to Gold Derby, she said: “I can tell you that there’s definitely a coming together of people. There’s a lot of tension between these little groups, battling for what they think is right. It’s Game Of Thrones, so it’s going to be bloodier and more death and more emotionally torturous than all the years before.”
Turner also spoke about the development of her character, Sansa Stark. “I always saw something of a warrior in Sansa that I don’t think other people really saw,” she said. “I always had the feeling that she was learning and adapting and at some point or another it was going to manifest itself somehow, and she manifested it into being a warrior.
“It felt really satisfying when it happened,” she continued, “and I’m really happy where this storyline for her has ended up.”
Meanwhile, Turner’s recent tattoo sparked speculation over the season 8 storyline. The actor got a direwolf and the words “The pack survives” inked on her arm, with fans suggesting it could be a spoiler for the new episodes. However, Turner later explained it as “just a moral I like to live by.”
