Thankyou so much to the lovely Mel for the translation!
Sophie Turner is a Stark.
Sophie has a lot in common with her character in Game of Thrones, Sansa Stark. Both are strong, brave and mature. The difference? Sophie depends on the screenwriters to write the next chapter of her life: how she got famous.
Talking about tv can get very passionate when discussing the moments, analyzing plot twists and loving (or loathing) a character. Without a doubt, for us the audience, it is great to be living in the golden age of television. But what makes a show successful? Now, in that, the audience is more demanding. You need well written characters, an impeccable production and creativity freedom. What better show than HBO’s Game of Thrones to prove it? Millions of people can’t be wrong. The struggle of the seven kingdoms has become one of the most talked about dramas, especially episode nine of each season (personally I’m still crying about the one in season 1). “It’s an honor to be able to work on something so awesome,” says Sophie Turner who plays the Stark’s eldest daughter, Sansa. “When I see how each year people are looking forward to watch the new episodes, it makes me appreciate every second to be part of it,” adds the 19 year old actress. Sophie is not only on the biggest show on tv, this year it was announced that she’d be part on one of the biggest film franchises: X-Men: Apocalypse. She’s won over the public’s love, the producers’ trust and most importantly, control over her own life. Her strategy? Two crucial elements: intelligence and maturity.
Game of Thrones has become one of the biggest shows. When you started, did you expect it to become the show with the highest rating on history?
Wow! It’s exciting to be working on something that has exceeded every expectation from the very beginning. The whole team – cast, producers, writers- is very passionate about it, which is the key to our success: we think big and freely. The fans appreciate the effort. Weirdly, when I’m on set, I don’t feel the pressure, I mean, we do care that everything is perfect, but we don’t have the “this is the best show on television so do something to deserve the title” thing on our backs. We just respect the universe in which the story is set, things just flow naturally from that.
For someone so young, you seem to get the hang of the business…
I know a thing or two… for my first big show, it’s not so bad!
