Honestly I love that Jon Snow is shorter than Sansa
And that HBO when filming the show doesn’t hide it. Kit Harrington is I think an inch or two shorter than Sophie Turner in real life. Sophie is 5′9 and usually, at least how I’ve noticed it in most media, if an actress is taller than their male co-stars (generally the main character or lead) this is hidden through clever camera angles and how it’s shot. Even in media like animation if you’re a man it’s like you’re expected to be taller and women are expected to be shorter when in reality like everyone’s heights vary.
Which why I love Jon being kept shorter than Sansa. Sure there’s scenes where it’d be hard to hide it and I don’t know if it’s a conscious decision on part of the showrunners. But instead of hiding that Sophie is a tall person and that Jon is shorter they don’t. The expectations of heights of men and women are broken. And yeah, it needs to happen in more media, and I think most people don’t even notice this (since I’ve heard no one else talking about it) but it’s still important and a good thing.
