Game of Thrones Season 3 is going to be so good, even if it's not always good for Sansa (Sophie Turner). But, really, what could be worse than being engaged to Joffrey (Jack Gleeson)?

The HBO series returns on March 31, and Sophie told The Associated Press, “I can tell you that Sansa kind of goes through this little roller coaster on Season 3 emotionally, she kind of gets her hopes up a little at times and they kind of get crushed — as per (usual) pretty much, nothing much different."

She said this season is very emotionally testing for Sansa, but Sophie does have the bonus of sharing a lot of screen time with Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) in King’s Landing. “Peter’s such a cool guy,” Sophie said, “he’s amazing to act alongside with and I think I’ve been really lucky in terms of having worked with Sean Bean closely — him being my dad [Ned Stark] — and now Peter, I’m very lucky getting to work in scenes with these guys because they’re big successful actors."

She is lucky! And they are lucky to have her, too.

Why are Sansa and Tyrion spending so much time together? Well, in George R.R. Martin's third book, A Storm of Swords, King Joffrey ends his betrothal to Sansa to instead wed Margaery Tyrell, widow of Renly Baratheon. Sansa is forced to marry Tyrion. Things get ... awkward. For both of them.
