The fact that Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) made it to Game of Thrones Season 4 in one piece is basically a miracle. Naive and timid, Sansa spent three seasons as the pawn in other people's games. But when Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Sophie Turner at the Christian Siriano Fall/Winter 2014 Collection show during New York Fashion Week, she promised that things are about to change for her character in a big way.
"There's a kind of big evolution [for Sansa in Season 4]," Sophie dished. "She begins to kind of manipulate the people who have done wrong to her in her past. She becomes a powerhouse character but in a very subtle way. It's really good."
Is Sophie excited about the new direction Sansa has taken? Of course! "I feel like I've been waiting for a moment where I can manipulate the people that have come before me, so it was like I had been waiting for it for so long. It was a release."
As for the season on a whole, Sophie promise "shocking stuff" and "more deaths, of course, because it's Game of Thrones."
Since we were at fashion week, we couldn't resist asking which Game of Thrones cast member has the best fashion sense when they're walking around the real world instead of Westeros. When we talked to Maisie Williams (Arya), she singled out Sophie, explaining that her on-screen sis "looks awesome all the time. She's got it right." Sophie returned the compliment, picking Maisie as the best off-screen dresser.
It sounds like both Stark girls are getting more dangerous this season, but in real life, they're clearly just as sweet as ever!
