Sophie Turner, who plays the character of Sansa Stark in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” has revealed that Sansa is jealous of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) even though she loves him a lot. [Spoiler Alert] Hence, when Jon Snow was named King in the North, there were only two people who did not rejoice and they were Sansa and Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen).

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Turner explained that Sansa trusts Jon to make morally right decisions but she probably does not trust him with “political things.” Hence, when Jon tells Sansa in “Game of Thrones” Season 6, Episode 10, “The Winds of Winter,” that they should completely trust each other, she finds it very frustrating.

“I think Jon means they need to be more open with each other and tell each other what's going on — and it's very frustrating for Sansa to hear him say that. She knows he means it more about her than it is him talking about himself. And he really needs to trust her,” Turner said in the interview.

Moreover, in order to make matters worse, Littlefinger has already started poisoning Sansa's mind, still holding on to the general belief that Jon is only some “bastard born in the South.” He basically wants her to go against Jon and become the Queen in the North so that he can marry her and then have a go at conquering the Iron Throne. That’s exactly what he tells Sansa in the godswood outside of Winterfell.

Even though Sansa rejects Littlefinger’s offer showing her loyalty towards Jon, she was not particularly pleased when every house in the North made Jon King in the North and no one praised Sansa for saving Winterfell from Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon). It was on Sansa’s insistence that The Knights of the Vale, led by Littlefinger, attacked Ramsay’s army and won Winterfell.

“As you say, she rejects him in the beginning, but there's definitely something in her that's… it's kind of a jealousy toward Jon. He's getting all of the credit for basically Sansa saving his ass. Obviously he played a huge part in the Battle of the Bastards, but Sansa really saved him. There's a bit of jealousy there,” Turner explained.

Sansa knew that Littlefinger would have made her Queen in the North and given her the credit she deserves. In “Game of Thrones” Season 7, it is likely that Littlefinger will smell this tiny bit of jealousy in Sansa to make a big “deal” out of it. He may play a big role in widening the rift between the two.

However, another very important storyline will be unfolding the next season and that is Jon’s true parentage. Season 6 finale revealed that Jon was the son of Lyanna Stark (Aisling Franciosi) and very likely Rhaegar Targaryen. This makes Jon one of the most politically complicated characters in the Seven Kingdoms. When Sansa comes to know about this, Turner believes it would do more good than harm and build, not burn a few bridges.
