So, this is my contribution to the DWSW tumblr meme. And now it’s in color. Still learning to color with digital. This is only my fourth piece. I still can’t really do backgrounds so I just splash color around.
1. Sansa is from an established industry family. Ned Stark is a famous director, well respected, and Catelyn Stark is a former child star turned equally respected actress. Basically hollywood royalty. Robb was a teen heart throb who had his fifteen minutes on a few long running popular teen shows but he didn’t have the know-how to make his career last. Sansa started acting at a young age too.
2. Sansa got her start on a disney show, basically being the pretty perfect main lead, had her face on lunchboxes and tween girl magazines, was idolised etc. When she was 17 she starred in her first major movie role, alongside Joffrey Baratheon, teen heart throb that he is on screen. His infamous momager, Cersei, and even more infamous movie producer grandfather, Tywin, thought it would be the perfect press story to have the two start a real life romance to boost both their careers. Sansa thought it was for real, but joffrey was only in it for the fame. and of course…he’s joffrey. Basically Sansa has to deal with an abusive relationship behind closed doors, while walking down a red carpet arm in arm with him while they smile for the cameras.
3. Petyr was an old child star from a massively popular eighties sitcom. He was the younger brother comic relief character to the cool teen girl character catelyn stark played. Her career took off but screen fame really didn’t suit the awkward young petyr once he outgrew that childhood cuteness. Yes, he was bitter. He didn’t leave the business though. A couple of decades later and he’s a succesfull manager who knows the ins and outs of hollywood, and all the dirty tricks to get ahead, better than anyone. Still can’t shake his old character ‘littlefinger’ reputation though, but that’s ok. People laugh at the old catchphrases and eighties clothes and forget what an industry shark he is.
4. when sansa’s career is on the tipping point between being a has been child star and turning into a bonafide actress with staying power, she’s lost. Cersei is not on her side. Joffrey is cheating on her with new movie co-star Margaery. She needs a new manager, new PR, the connections. Enter Petyr Baelish, her mothers old trusted co-star, who promises to make her famous.
