Sophie Turner says she hasn't watched Game of Thrones season 8



Game of Thrones meant a lot to its actors. While for most it proved to be career-defining series, for someone like Sophie Turner it proved to be a life-defining show. Turner who played the role of Sansa Stark literally grew up with the show and became a renowned figure by the time the show ended its run. It’s natural that she still misses the show and realizes that nothing quite will be the same as that. Read on!

Turner recently spoke with Elle and talked about Game of Thrones’ ending and what it meant to her. When asked about her reaction to show’s final season, she said:

“I didn’t watch it, I began watching when the last season started,’ she continues. ‘I was planning to watch the rest, but then I fell behind. And then I started reading all these comments online…”

She then tried to explain that she realized that not everyone can be happy with a show’s ending. She said:

“I feel like not everyone can be satisfied with the ending. Especially a show that’s been going for 10 years at that point. People have so many ideas about how they want it to end. You can’t make every fan happy.”

She then talked about what it meant to her to be part of one of the greatest shows of all time. She replied:

“Pretty much since season three, we’ve been hearing, “Game of Thrones! It’s a phenomenon!” She continued “I’ve been trying to comprehend that. But when you’re in it, you can’t see it.”

She said that now that she has had time to think about it she realizes how special the show was for her.

“Now that I’m out of it, I’m only starting to realize how incredible it was, and what a revelation it was for television. I’m like, Oh my god, I’ve been blessed. When it’s happening, you don’t realize you’re among greatness.”

Turner was only 15 when she began filming for the show. By the time the show came to an end she had turned 24 and made some great friends. She shared a great camaraderie with her fellow ‘Stark sister’ Maisie Williams who played the role of Arya Stark on the show. Latter was even her bridesmaid!

A few months back we came to know about Turner’s reaction to her final scene on the show. Turner tried to explain those feelings by saying that she felt she was spoilt by the show and that nothing ever will come close to it. She said:

“The people I was around; the atmosphere; the way they worked. I was spoiled by that show completely. And I’ll never have anything like it again. Nothing will be the same as that. And only now am I realizing that.”

Well, we are pretty sure that it is not only Turner who is missing the show. What say fans? Write to us and let us know your feelings in the comments section below!

Humility is a virtue possessed by few. Even though Game of Thrones reached great heights, the show’s cast was always humble to their roots. They have won the admiration and respect of fans all over the world due to their down-to-earth nature. For example, Jason Momoa reached out to a young Aquaman fan battling cancer last year. Kristian Nairn (Hodor) talked to Digital Spy about the show’s success and praised his co-stars.

He said, “It didn’t happen overnight, and I think for us that was a good thing. I mean it was always immensely popular, I just think as the seasons went on it moved from a really amazing TV show into a kind of phenomenon. It sort of turned into that thing that everyone talks about, people say over the watercooler at work. “

“It’s crazy, because every TV show you watch these days, every single TV show or movie, they all reference Game of Thrones. It always blows me away. I watch a show I love and there’s a reference to Hodor, there’s a reference to Khaleesi. It’s become such a huge part of the public psyche. I don’t think we ever dreamed before season one was out that that would happen. It still happens!”

“It kind of grew, it really doubled per season. But we grew into it, which made it kind of easy. The cast was really down to Earth. I can say hand on heart we’re all really down to Earth. I think that’s a really nice thing. Just the whole Hollywood thing, we’re all kind of aware of that… Game of Thrones is so brutal and real. It’s important to keep it real.”

Game of Thrones was an enchanting journey that lasted for nearly a decade. Some of the show’s cast was very young when the show began. They sort of grew up with the show, like Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Isaac Hempstead-Wright. Stardom can be a bit scary when you are young. Especially for someone as studious as Isaac Hempstead-Wright. He revealed about his nervousness in an interview with Digital Spy.

Isaac (Bran) said, “It was actually a little bit intimidating. I remember seeing the show go interstellar. Especially when you’re separate from it a bit [Bran was off-screen during season five], you really just see how huge it is when you’re not in the midst of the whole thing.”

“I really think season five was when it had its meteoric rise. So coming back into season six – and I hadn’t acted for a year; I’d been doing my GCSEs – coming back in was kind of like, ‘Argh! I’ve forgotten how to act!’”

He continued, “I think also there had been a lot of bonds forged in that season, and a lot of people had grown up. I’d kind of grown-up, but I had that key year of being 15, 16 away from it. So it was a weird one to come back to. But after a couple of days, it was business as usual.”

Game of Thrones ended more than one and a half years ago. It was a beautiful journey for both the fans and the crew that lasted for a decade. The fantastical series still holds the record for the most number of Emmy Awards won. On the occasion of New Year, the cast of the show came together for an interview with Digital Spy. They shared their experience while shooting for the fantasy epic. Gwendoline Christie (Brienne) and Kristian Nairn (Hodor) talked about how they were cast for their roles.

Gwendoline recalled, “I immediately rang my agent and said, ‘I want to do this’. My agent said, ‘What are you talking about? I’d never ever put you up for this. She’s ugly, her nose is broken, her teeth are broken and you’ll need to use a sword’.”

Nairn remembered, “I was a first-time actor. I was glad I didn’t know anything about the show at the time. Because if I had I would’ve realised what a huge audition I was going for. I had no idea what Game of Thrones was. I had auditioned for a part in another movie called Hot Fuzz, and I didn’t get the part. It was the casting director Nina Gold who remembered me – she called me in for this audition. I didn’t know it at the time, but when you’re called for an audition, that’s really in your favour.”
