She said: "I've been trying to wrap my head around it". Sophie Turner was a teenager when she auditioned for the role of Sansa, and since then, she said, she has spent years developing two identities: her own, and her character's. "I think that's why people respond so well to our friendship, I guess".
The show's stars, including British actors Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Kit Harington, gathered at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
Whilst Sophie can't share details on the upcoming seventh season of the show - which airs next week - she has revealed the episodes will focus on "trust and loyalty" for Sansa. "But I found my strength in her, and I think she found her strength in me".
If you've been following Turner around Westeros as Sansa Stark in the hit HBO series, you'll come to know (and adore) the actress as the older Stark sister, who can rock a killer fishtail braid and vibrant red locks.
Speaking to W magazine, she teased: "Now that she's became a leader, she has Winterfell, she has her home, she has her brother". "She's got to the point where she has that power that she's been longing for". "This season is about trust and loyalty".
