She revealed, “Sansa has changed from being a naïve, vulnerable innocent young woman and being such an underdog… to being a leader, powerful and hungry for revenge from the people who have done her family wrong.”

“I can totally see her becoming a Cersei and kind of driven mad by it, by the threats against her family. At the end of the day, that’s why (Cersei) does the things that she does, because she’s terrified of losing the people she loves. And so she’ll stop at nothing to protect them,” she added.

The 21 year-old, who also stars in film X-Men: Apocalypse, added, “If that means becoming like a ruthless killer, leader, sadistic woman or evil lady, then so be it. I don’t think it matters to her, and I can see Sansa swinging that way too.”

The seventh season of the show will debut in the US on July 16 and will have seven episodes.
