The world of Westeros will soon fade out from the programming lineup of HBO. Hence, fans are already anticipating that most of the characters won’t survive to the end of Game of Thrones season 7. However, it seems one key role will be strong enough to survive until the last season comes around.
The character is none other than Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner). While attending the recent BAFTAs, the actress revealed that she’ll be filming the upcoming X-Men film. Alongside this, she’ll be filming season 8 of Game of Thrones.
Winter is Coming quotes Turner as saying, “We’re about to start shooting the next X-Men, we just finished shooting season 7 of Thrones, and I’ve got a couple of movies to do before X-Men starts, and then we go on to season 8! So I’ve got a busy year lined up.”
The source focuses on the actress’ comment about going to season 8. Unless she’s returning in flashbacks or as a ghost, the most logical thought is Sansa survives the events of season 7.
While this may not seem like a big deal, it provides a deep insight into where the final season is heading. If both Sansa and Jon Snow survives, this clues in into Winterfell playing a big role for season 8.
With Danaerys arriving at Westeros, an alliance with the North will be helpful with her attempt to claim the Iron Throne. However, there is still no confirmation if the Khaleesi will be a friend or a foe to the Starks. The only known detail from set photos is that there will be a meeting between Dany and Jon.
Game of Thrones Season 7 Spoilers Revealed by Sophie Turner’s BAFTAs Look
Nevertheless, although Sansa’s chances are looking good, she may not have it easy in season 7. Sophie Turner’s look at the BAFTAs sparked conversation among Netizens.
The actress wore a long-sleeved glittery dress with a very long slit. However, the sleekness of her gown is not the one that caught most people’s attention. Instead, as per Vanity Fair, bruises on her legs revealed by the slit took the spotlight.
People immediately assumed that the actress got the bruises from her stunts in GoT. Hence, if the stunts brought those much bruises, fans also speculated that Sansa may go through some rough times in the seventh season.
At this point, it’s a mystery whether the bruises are really from filming GoT. Fans will soon find out Sansa’s fate when Game of Thrones season 7 premieres on Summer 2017.
