Spoilers ahead for those of you who aren’t caught up on Game of Thrones.
It’s over. The Game of Thrones has come to an end. And while the ultimate answer of who will sit the Iron Throne has been revealed, the person in power was not one whom many expected. But for Sansa (Sophie Turner) and the surviving members of the Stark family, things ended up pretty well for them, considering.
Speaking to EW, Turner talked about the decision to put Bran Stark on the throne while Sansa remained Queen of/in the North, along with her thoughts on whether or not Sansa would make a good ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. (No comment yet on why the showrunners started pronouncing her name as San-za in this season, but maybe that’ll be in the behind-the-scenes Blu-ray features.)
Here’s Turner’s super-brief reaction to how it all ended on Game of Thrones:
“I wasn’t bummed at all, because ever since the end of Season 1, Sansa has not been about the capital or being queen. She doesn’t believe she could rule and doesn’t want to. She knows her place is in the North and she can rule the people of the North and rule Winterfell. She’d probably be capable [of being queen of the Seven Kingdoms] with the help of her family and advisors like Tyrion. But she has no desire to be ruler of all of the Seven Kingdoms.”
