Sophie Turner discusses playing Sansa Stark, her career, and things she would never do for a role



Game of Thrones is a show that has skyrocketed the careers of many a stars that started their careers with the show. Now, as the show enters the final season, we see many of those stars all grown up, moving on with their careers, taking up new projects. One of them is Sophie Turner, who plays the role of Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones. She recently discussed her role, and her career in general. Read on!

Sophie recently sat down with Refinery29, and she talked about quite a few things. Starting off, she spoke about how it has been to play Sansa Stark:

“It’s almost like I have a split personality. My redhead persona is Sansa — she’s so strong and independent. So red, to me, is the ultimate strength. I’d like to think of it as my Sasha Fierce moment, but I’m no Beyoncé [laughs]. With the blond, it’s like I’m back to being Sophie. That felt empowering as well, because I was leaving my teenage years behind and becoming a woman.”

Sophie has gone from dying her blonde head red for the role, to wearing a wig. Wigs apparently, are quite the hot accesory on the sets of Game of Thrones:

“I could not count the amount of wigs we use on that show if I wanted to — almost everyone wears one. A lot of the guys will have hair inserts glued on that they probably don’t want people to know about, but it’s true. Or they’ll do beard wigs, or use little pieces of hair to fill in the gaps in their beards.”

We’re seriously curious now. She then spoke about her upcoming film Josie, in which she plays a rather creepy character from the looks of it, and the changes she had to make for the part:

“I had to bleach my hair for a movie that’s coming out next month (Josie) and I had all these badass tattoos all over my body. I looked at myself in the mirror and I was like, ‘This is so far from my redheaded, pale, clean-cut look.’ That was really fun for me. I only have a few tattoos [in real life] — maybe three or four.”


Moving on from speaking about her transformation for the movie, she discussed what she won’t do just to land a role:

“I don’t think I could voluntarily shave my head for fear of what it would look like. I have a tiny pea head and broad shoulders, so I don’t think I could do a really short haircut.

But who knows? When Game of Thrones comes to an end, maybe I’ll have something of an Emma Watson cutting her hair short moment — maybe I’ll go crazy.”
