Also, the fact that we saw Sansa smile, made me very happy. I hope we see more of that but I know better.

WinterIsComing.Net, the forerunner for Game of Thrones news recently sat down with Sophie and Natalie during their whirlwind press tours and they’ve recently posted their interview. I won’t be sharing it all, just a few small snippets but be sure to go to visit them to read it.
It’s a wonderful interview with two very lovely ladies!
Terri asks Sophie how hard is it to trust anyone any more…
Sophie: Well, after Ned’s death… it’s not easy! But Sansa realizes that you do have to kind of be a solo player and form alliances in order to get to where you want. But she’s still a little bit naive, and she still hopes that she can be a normal 14-year old with friends. So she forms this kind of alliance/friendship with Shae. And she’s learning to trust people, but she’s learning to trust the right people. She believes that she’s not going to trust Littlefinger—you know, the really bad ones. So she’s making better choices than she would have if Ned perhaps wouldn’t have… [she leaves it hanging] But she’s learning her way. And I think Margaery realizes that.
And the ladies touch on themes of friendship and rivalries between Margaery and Sansa:
Natalie: Because if it wasn’t for the internal politics going on, Sansa and Margaery would probably sincerely be genuinely friends. Two young girls quite like each other. It’s just the circumstances that sort of put them in this very ambiguous, sort of difficult situation.
Sophie: It’s a forced friendship. [Sophie has an odd little raised eyebrow and an ironic-looking smile] Take it or leave it.
Natalie: [a faux gasp!] I was totally sincere!
There’s some really great stuff in here about upcoming stories and directions for Sansa, so be sure to go finish reading over at WinterIsComing
This Game is far from over.
Game of Thrones has been renewed for a fourth season, HBO announced Tuesday.
The pickup was considered inevitable even before the show set a new ratings record with Sunday’s Season 3 premiere. The episode drew a series-best audience of 4.4 million total viewers, rising 13 percent from the drama’s sophomore opener and up 4 percent from the previous finale.
Folding in two encores broadcasts, the premiere amassed 6.7 million viewers, up 7 percent versus Season 2?s opening night cume.
