HBO fantasy series "Game of Thrones" is known for killing off key characters without any warning, as fans of the show realised earlier on in the series when Ned Stark was beheaded in the first season and the Red Wedding killed off a good number of Starks in Season 3.
So, it is not surprising that Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, has already thought of her character's demise. "A long, slow episode-lasting death, where it's just one long scene of my death and no one else," she said at the Power of Young Hollywood event hosted by Variety. "And it's going to be the last episode of the last season," she added.
As for what fans can expect from her character in the upcoming season, which will air in 2017, Turner remained mum, but admitted that she has received the script and knows what's in store for Sansa. "There are so many options. She could run with Littlefinger and become a villain and sadistic. Or she could also team up with her brother Jon," said Turner, teasing the possibilities.
She also touched upon the ending of the series that has garnered a huge fan following world-over, saying she will definitely be sad when the fantasy drama based on George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series comes to an end. "When I finish this I don't actually know what's going to happen. I might slip into a deep, deep depression because I won't know what to do with myself," said the actress.
"Game of Thrones" Season 7 production has been pushed back to accommodate the arrival of winter in Westeros. During an appearance on a UFC podcast, "Game of Thrones" showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss also added that they do not have an air date yet. "We're starting a bit later because, you know, at the end of this season, winter is here, and that means that sunny weather doesn't really serve our purposes any more. We kind of pushed everything down the line so we could get some grim, gray weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot," the showrunners said.
