Sophie Turner who played Sansa Stark on the successful HBO fantasy series, Game of Thrones, shared an emotional post on Instagram. The actress, who featured as Ned Stark’s daughter and sister to Jon Snow, posted two photographs with the cast of the show and wrote a ‘thank you’ note to her character Sansa who taught her so many things throughout her ten-year portrayal.
Besides this, Sophie even shared her gratitude for the writers of GoT and also posted a picture with Kit Harrington aka Jon Snow and Maise Williams aka Arya Stark that will certainly give you nostalgia in no time. Although Sophie shared the Instagram post before the season finale of GoT, the actress’ message brings 8 seasons worth of hard work into her note.
Sophie wrote, “Sansa, Thank you for teaching me resilience, bravery and what true strength really is. Thank you teaching me to be kind and patient and to lead with love. I grew up with you. I fell in love with you at 13 and now 10 years on.. at 23 I leave you behind, but I will never leave behind what you’ve taught me. To the show and the incredible people who make it, thank you for giving me the best life and drama lessons I could have ever asked for. Without you I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Thank you for giving me this chance all those years ago. And finally to the fans. Thank you for falling in love with these characters and supporting this show right through till the end. I’ll miss this more than anything.” Check out her post below…
Spoilers ahead! Sophie who becomes the Queen in the North, has a momentous scene in the final episode and is also influential in keeping the North free from the dominion of the Iron Throne (which is now been melted away by Dragon fire). The actress’ character has been one of the most central figures in the show and her graph from being naïve to an influential political leader, Sophie has been showered with praises.
Seeing her nostalgic message, sister-in-law Priyanka Chopra commented with an “Awww” followed by a lovestruck sign. The reply is so relatable and something that we’d all react to in the same manner.
Meanwhile, Sophie will now be gearing up for next big release X-Men: Dark Pheonix that will release on June 5.
