“Game of Thrones” is well known for killing off its main characters, much to the fans’ shock and horror. No one is safe, and that goes for the women and children. Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, reveals in a new interview she’s “terrified” of being the next character to die.
“Oh my God, I’m so terrified,” Turner tells GQ about reading the show’s scripts and not knowing if she’ll be meeting her demise. Considering that the show’s seemingly main character, Ned Stark (Sean Bean), didn’t survive to see the end of the first season, Turner admits “everyone on the show” fears they could be out of a job. “It’s crazy. Almost every day we’re on set we’re like, ‘Who do you think is gonna go next?’” the actress says. “It’s almost like living in the Blair Witch Project.”
Turner goes on to note that whenever an actor’s character is killed off, the whole cast goes out for drinks. But she adds, “By now we’re so used to it. We used to have big things when other people died. But there’s so many people who die now, we’re like, ‘Can’t really afford it, man. We’ve been out every night.’”
The highly anticipated sixth season of “Game of Thrones” premieres this Sunday on HBO. And, of course, fans who’ve been waiting all year will finally found out the fate of Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), who may or may not have died on the Season 5 finale.
