Actor Sophie Turner, who portrays the character of Sansa Stark in the award-winning series, Game of Thrones, has promised "more death and emotional torture" in the final season of fantasy show.

In an interview with an entertainment portal Gold Derby, she said that the final season will be bloodier.


"It's Game Of Thrones so it is going to be bloodier and more death and more emotionally torturous than all the years before," Turner said.

Based on George R R Martin's novels, the show is about the thrilling quest to claim the Iron Throne. It is the intricate and surprising tale that keeps one hooked to the show.

Talking about the last season, she added, "I can tell you that there's definitely a coming together of people to fight the impending doom. There's a lot of tension between these little groups, battling for what they think is right."


Sophie revealed that her character, Sansa, will fully embrace her role as a fighter. “I always saw something of a warrior in Sansa that I don’t think other people really saw,” she admits. “I always had the feeling that she was learning and adapting and at some point or another it was going to manifest itself somehow.”

Sophie continued, “And she manifested it into being a warrior. It felt really satisfying when it happened, and I’m really happy where this story-line for her has ended up.”

The final season will premiere next year.
