Thrilled GOT fans welcomed the alternative ending with open arms as GOT crushed the world, regardless of the ending. Each season hoarding more body counts and revenge being served cold at weddings, prompted us to deal with ghastly endings. The third season got us to realize that the most righteous characters aren’t spared from these horrendous endings and that is the thing that made it all the more amazing when the Starks at long last got redemption.
Sophie Turner,in an interview with a media firm, said that she cannot really describe the moment when she read the final scene . She said that she was just very overwhelmed and that kept her reading and re-reading the same final scene. The actor felt numb afterward because she never thought that she would be able to read the final scene. She further shared that she was really happy with the ending for her character and she never expected to get the Iron Throne.
The ending has stunned numerous fans as in GoT, one generally doesn’t have a palatable completion as history surmises. Nobody was as shocked the way Sophie Turner herself might have been, as she consistently became one of the most loved characters among the fans. In Games of Thrones Season 8, there is a sequence where Sophie is seen discussing the crowning ceremony of Sansa as the Queen of North.
Sophie was among the four GoT actors to garner an Emmy nomination for Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. Along with her, Lena Headey, Gwendoline Christie and Maisie Williams were also nominated and even Fiona Shaw was on the list for her Killing Eve but all five lost the Emmy to Julia Garner who won the award for Ozark. Emmys 2019 was the first time when Sophie got nominated for Game of Thrones character of Sansa Stark.
