“Sansa was a lady at three, always so courteous and eager to please. She loved nothing so well as tales of knightly valor. Men would say she had my look, but she will grow into a woman far more beautiful than I ever was, you can see that. I often sent away her maid so I could brush her hair myself. She had auburn hair, lighter than mine, and so thick and soft… the red in it would catch the light of the torches and shine like copper.” - Caetlyn Tully
“They are children, Sansa thought. They are silly little girls, even Elinor. They’ve never seen a battle, they’ve never seen a man die, they know nothing. Their dreams were full of songs and stories, the way hers had been before Joffrey cut her fathers head off. Sansa pitied them. Sansa envied them.”
Now I love to work in Game of Thrones because the cast and crew are like family to me. One moment you’re with your real family and then you go to the shooting and see your other family. It’s surreal. Actually, I call Michelle (Fairley), who plays my mother in the show, my second mum.
“She’s relatable to because she’s such a realistic character. I think she’s like young girls today — they read magazines, they look at models, they’ve got social media telling them how to act. That’s who Sansa is. She’s looked at the queen, she’s looked at Margaery Tyrell, and she idolises them. All she wants is to become them. She’s like every 12-year-old girl who wants to be a celebrity — it’s the same adolescence as everyone else, but a few hundred years ago. In an alternative universe. With dragons.” [Sophie Turner on Sansa Stark]
