Sophie Turner To 'Town & Country Mag': 'I Feel Everything Sansa Stark Feels'

Sophie Turner To 'Town & Country Mag': 'I Feel Everything Sansa Stark Feels'

Sophie Turner lays in a bed of white roses in the garden in the February 2015 issue of Town & Country magazine.

The 18-year-old Game of Thrones actress opened up to the glossy about Sansa Stark, women on film, and more. Check it:

On the show’s depiction of, and attitudes towards, women: “It’s based on history, on the Wars of the Roses, on Tudor times, where women didn’t really have a position in the world. But because it’s also fantasy, because it doesn’t need to completely recreate mediaeval times, they can put in these really strong female characters who have a voice in the world, really empowered women who can say what they want – like Daenerys, like Cersei, like Brienne of Tarth.”

On her connection with Sansa: “Sansa and I have grown up together for the past five years, and so when I’m reading the script and something happens to her, I cry all the time. There is a real connection between us – I feel everything she feels. I’d come on set and see something like Ned’s [her character's father's] beheading, a heavy, heavy scene to shoot. Having my mum on set for the first three years was really important back then. Because if you get too wrapped up in that darkness, it can really damage you.”

On whether she will miss the TV show one day: “I do think about what it will be like when it’s all over. Although I don’t want to. My whole adolescence has been on ‘Game of Thrones’. I don’t know what I’m going to do without it. There’s this huge family that I’ve come back to every year. And the first time it gets to July and I don’t go back there, it’s really going to freak me out.”

The February issue of Town & Country is out on February 3rd.
