Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner admits Sansa Stark is jealous of Jon Snow
Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner has admitted her character Sansa Stark will be jealous of half-brother Jon Snow in the upcoming seventh season.
At the end of season seven, Sansa ensured Jon’s success in the Battle of the Bastards by securing the aid of Littlefinger and the Vale. However, her efforts did not go rewarded as she watched Jon crowned ‘King of the North’ for the achievement, despite not being a trueborn Stark son.
Sansa has experienced her fair share of hardships on the show, including being betrothed to two tyrants and married to one.
Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph about the impact Sansa’s struggles have had on the character, Turner said: “She’s less sympathetic towards the other characters – she’s in it for herself and she’ll do anything to get what she wants at this point.”
She continued to explain how Sansa feels about Jon: “I think she definitely feels left out, with Jon being King of the North. There’s a little bit of jealousy there and she feels as though she deserves the title of Queen of the North.
“She also feels like it’s an injustice that she hasn’t been recognised for what she did for all of the northerners and also that Jon isn’t recognising that either.
“I think if Jon was really appreciative of what she’s done and spoke to her about it, she wouldn’t have a problem with all the northern Lords not bowing down to her and hailing her Queen of the North. I think all she wants is the respect of her brother and I don’t think she feels like she’s getting that.”
