Game of Thrones Star Sophie Turner Has a Prediction for How Sansa Stark Will Die

Sophie Turner is no stranger to the spotlight. This year alone, she starred in Dark Phoenix and wrapped up her time as Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones, a role she took on at just 13 years old. The now-23-year-old recently spoke with the Los Angeles Times about her wild career and the struggle of rising to fame at such a young age, before dishing on where she thinks her Game of Thrones character ended up.

Turner compared Sansa’s precarious journey with her own, saying, “Sansa’s being thrown in the deep end in this world she doesn’t understand. She doesn’t have any perspective other than a [kid] looking through rose-tinted glasses. That was kind of me.”

Turner also explained how she grew with the character, adding, “As a person, you become more closed off [due to fame]. It fed into Sansa, for sure. Coming in at age 13, I couldn’t have played Sansa at 17. I wouldn’t have lived enough life.”

When asked about Sansa’s fate after Thrones, Turner made a prediction: "I see her leading until she’s very old. I don’t see her getting married or having children. I think it would be a democratic kind of kingdom. She’d die of old age, very happy."

This is an uncharacteristically happy ending for a Game of Thrones character, but for Turner, we’ll let it slide. Sansa has been through enough.

Netflix's Stranger Things Season 3 Video Is Full of Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed

Stranger Things's third season was full of many surprising twists and turns, not to mention some awkward teen romances. While the gruesome Mind Flayer and the evil Russians were no doubt terrifying, the show kept its sweet touch of nostalgia due mainly to the fact that the Hawkins gang is now smack-dab in the middle of the 1980s.

It doesn’t take a keen eye to see many of the series's '80s references, particularly in the latest season. With scenes taking place at the new mall, references from the decade—including Hot Dog on a Stick, Sam Goody, and Back to the Future—are all part of the setting. However, creators Ross and Matt Duffer wanted to pay true homage to the decade, and thus left Easter eggs throughout the season that you likely missed.

Luckily for us, as BGR reports, Netflix has just released a video explaining the hidden references (with the New Coke debate, Mrs. Wheeler’s erotica novel, and Hopper’s Tom Selleck-inspired Hawaiian shirt among some of our favorites).

Check out the full video above and see what you missed!
