Sansa Stark might have landed as the Queen of the North in Game of Thrones season finale, much to everyone’s delight. Amidst a lot of criticism for the last season, fans really appreciate the ending Sansa got.
Ahead of the season finale, Sophie Turner took to Instagram to thank her character Sansa Stark for teaching her many invaluable lessons. While playing the role of the eldest Stark member who went through a lot including rape during the show, Sansa definitely learnt how transform into a brave and strong woman. She became a leader who finally ended up as the Queen of the North. Sophie also learnt how to rule and lead with love, kindness and patience from Sansa Stark. But looks like the actress is intent on taking these 10 years worth of lessons with her for the rest of her life. She expressed that,
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.
Turner then moved on to give a shout out to the cast and crew on Game of Thrones. She thanked them dearly for all the drama lessons she got on the show. She believes that if she wasn’t given the chance to be Sansa Stark ten years ago, she wouldn’t have become the person that she is.
