Why Sophie Turner Doesn't Want A Sansa Stark 'Game Of Thrones' Spinoff
Sophie Turner has ruled out any chance of returning to the role of Sansa Stark for a spin-off series.
In what's sure to shatter the hearts of 'Game of Thrones' fans around the world, Sophie Turner shut down any chance of returning to the role that catapulted her to fame.
Speaking to Sky News while promoting her new movie 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix', Turner was asked if she'd consider reprising her role as the Queen in the North.
"I think it's time to say goodbye to Sansa," Turner replied, "I'm ready-ish to say goodbye to her. I think my watch has ended. It's been 10 years of my life and the best 10 years of my life by far," she said.
She added, "I finished in a very happy place with Sansa and it's time to let her go. I feel like if I played her again it would just be more trauma".
While there is a 'Game of Thrones' prequel in the works starring Naomi Campbell, HBO president Casey Bloys was adamant there were no plans to create a spinoff series with any characters from the original series.
"Nope, nope, nope. No," he told THR.
"Part of it is, I do want this show -- this Game of Thrones, [D.B. Weiss and David Benioff]'s show -- to be its own thing. I don't want to take characters from this world that they did beautifully and put them off into another world with someone else creating it," he continued.
As for when the prequel series is set to debut, Ploys said, "We're shooting the pilot in June, you can do the math and figure out when it would be on the air... I don't want to speculate on any dates."
