Warning! The following contains spoilers for Game of Thrones' finale. "I have you to thank for introducing me to the incredible @SophieT. long live the QUEEN OF THE MF NORTH".

In a new interview with the Sunday Times, Turner explained the extreme measures she took to control her body image in the public eye.

Following last night's conclusion of HBO's Game of Thrones, Sophie Turner spoke with Entertainment Weekly about Sansa's fate at the end of the series finale.

Costume designer Michele Clapton was also responsible for creating some of Sansa Stark's (Sophie Turner) most riveting looks ever this season, and she sprinkled in quite a few clever homages to the people Sansa cared about most throughout the final stretch.

Rosenworcel acknowledged as much in a second tweet: "We've seen this kind of consolidation in airlines and with drug companies. While the DoJ approved that CenturyLink-Level 3 purchase, it has been notably less happy about the T-Mobile/Sprint merger.

Turner notes that when she was filming her final season 8 scene (the Dragonpit summit, shot during five days in Spain) she was utterly exhausted. "[The North is] the only place that she really, truly feels safe", she said. "It's a shock for sure, but I think it's just because it hasn't gone their way", she said. Worse, Sansa discovered her return to Winterfell came with a unsafe condition: an arranged wedding to the sadistic Ramsay Bolton. "Thank you teaching me to be kind and patient and to lead with love", wrote Turner. Because of this, some of the fandom thought the appropriate response would be to launch a petition calling for a remake of the season. "She's chosen how she wants her hair to be, and she's finally the leader and influencer instead of being influenced by everyone else".

"Without Littlefinger and Ramsay and the rest, I would've stayed a little bird all my life."

That said, I'm still a respectful fan of yours and your Sansa, Sophie Turner, in spite of season 8! There was even a petition to get the whole of the series remade - with "competent" writers. It changed the television landscape forever and brought stories to life in ways we hadn't seen before. "I fell in love with you at 13 and now 10 years on.at 23 I leave you behind, but I will never leave behind what you've taught me". I know how much pressure people put on themselves and I know how many sleepless nights working or otherwise people had on this show.
