Sophie Turner believes that Sansa could turn out to be the villain in “Game of Thrones” Season 7. The actress had for long suspected that her character would die soon, but the changes in the character in the recent season have placed her in an important position.

[Spoiler alert]

Turner has got the script for the next season of the popular HBO TV series, she told Variety. The actress teased that her character now has a lot of options after the way things turned out in the last season.

In the previous season, the Stark siblings were able to defeat the Boltons. However, Sansa was not too happy about her brother Jon Snow (Kit Harington) getting the major credit after the victory and getting named King in the North. It was Sansa’s alliance with Petyr Baelish (Aidan Gillen) that had actually ensured the victory.

Petyr had revealed his desire to rule the Seven Kingdoms with Sansa by his side. So, Sansa has two choices in “Game of Thrones” Season 7, Turner explained. She could go with Lord Baelish and turn into a sadistic villain or team up with Jon Snow.

Meanwhile, Executive Producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss talked about what to expect next in an interview with Deadline. All the characters went in different directions after the first season. The producers pointed out that since the past two years the storylines started to contract and bring the characters together.

Talking about Jon Snow, the producers said that his honourable nature has proven to be a disadvantage sometimes. They said that a man who plays by the rules will find it difficult to defeat enemies who do not. But, being honourable helps Jon rally people to his cause. The big question is will he be able to defeat his enemies who have no sense of honour and only care about victory.

Jon’s main enemy in “Game of Thrones” Season 7 could be Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey). The producers teased that in the past the only thing that restrained the Queen is her love for her children. With her children all dead, the “loveless Cersei” will be a “fearsome thing.”
