“Game of Thrones” Season 7 is still almost a year away, but according to Sophie Turner, the season will see a number of popular character’s uniting and reuniting.
“It really feels like everyone is coming together,” Turner told TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell. “It’s coming to a conclusion and people are forming alliances with other characters, maybe that they’ve seen before, maybe that they haven’t. There are definitely a few reunions happening this season — or unions. There were a few that I’m quite excited about.”
What that means is not clear as of yet, but some obvious alliances could include Sansa and Jon Snow teaming up with Daenerys once she makes her way to Westeros.
We’d also love to see Sansa and Jon reunite with Arya now that she’s on her way back home to Winterfell. Beyond that though, it is still a mystery.
Turner also spoke about Sansa’s future on the show, and if she is happy with her character’s current relationship with Snow.
“I, personally as Sophie, think they would be a perfect sort of collaboration because he’s the military man and she’s the politician,” she said. “Together they’re quite a strong team as long as they listen to each other, and that’s their problem; they don’t quite work well together yet.”
“Game of Thrones” Season 7 is set to premiere in the summer of 2017. You can watch the video at TheWrap website.
Please no one spoil the latest “Game of Thrones” season finale for Sansa Stark: The actress who plays her, Sophie Turner, hasn’t seen it yet — and needs to get caught up via her boyfriend’s HBO Go account.
Turner acted her heart out in the latest season of the series, but the actress hasn’t watched herself because she’s just been too busy, she told TheWrap. (Watch the video above.)
“I actually haven’t seen it yet. I’ve been busy working,” Turner said. “And I actually didn’t read it because I want to watch it as a fan. That’s my whole thing now is I don’t read anyone else’s parts in the scripts because I want to watch it and experience it like the rest of the world does.”

Sansa Stark actress grants 18-year-old Kieran wish with Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity
THIS WEEKEND, Sophie Turner granted 18-year-old Kieran, who is currently living with terminal Ewing Sarcoma, his greatest wish to meet one of his favourite characters from hit TV Show, Game of Thrones, when she met him for afternoon tea in London, thanks to Rays of Sunshine www.raysofsunshine.org.uk.
The County Durham teen was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare type of bone and soft tissue cancer, in 2010 when he was 12-years-old. Due to this, he endured intensive chemotherapy, as well as having his left leg amputated. Very unfortunately, Kieran relapsed in 2013, which resulted in him having part of his lung removed, as well as enduring more intensive chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant.
Despite all that he has been through, the 18-year-old hasn’t let his illness dampen his ambition of representing Great Britain at the Paralympics. The inspirational teen is currently in training to be a T42 sprinter, having already achieved success in gymnastics, as well as working hard to raise awareness and funds for research in to Ewing Sarcoma.
It was during his most recent round of treatment, and long hospital stays, that Kieran began watching Game of Thrones and it soon became his favourite show. Kieran’s parents, Nicola and Alistair, applied to Rays of Sunshine to grant his greatest wish and bring some much needed sunshine to the teen.
To make Kieran’s wish become a reality, Rays of Sunshine organised for Kieran, his parents and sister, Alyssa, to travel to London. The exclusive meeting took place at The Ivy Café, where Sophie Turner took time out of her busy filming schedule to meet Kieran and spend time chatting about all things Game of Thrones. During the afternoon tea, Kieran got the chance to ask Sophie all about what it’s like to play Sansa Stark, what it’s really like on set, as well as a host of other questions.

Social media is putting power back in the hands of activists and today’s youth, turning Twitter trends such as #BlackLivesMatter into global movements, a ten-part docu-series from The Huffington Post explores today.
The #BlackLivesMatter episode is part of #PowerShift, hosted by Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner, which examines the revolutionary ways in which today’s youth are embracing social media to change the world for the better.
The episode features activist LeCreshia Birts who says: “Social media does put power back in the hands of activists or people like me because it allows us to tell our story.”
Opal Tometi, co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter, explains the importance of social media in letting people know about demonstrations that are taking place.
Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post Media Group, Arianna Huffington, said: “Even though we’ve seen example after example around the world of social media deepening connections, improving lives and making the world better, we are still only beginning to understand its potential.
“So I’m delighted that, as part of our What’s Working initiative to reimagine journalism with an emphasis on solutions, #PowerShift is putting a spotlight on real people using social media to change the world, in a way that’s both inspiring and entertaining.”
Turner said: “Social media has amplified the voice for my generation around the world and changed the way that we communicate.
“I am a huge advocate of social media and thrilled to be given the opportunity to delve deep into its influence and impact on society at large.”
#PowerShift will live on all 15 global editions of The Huffington Post and will be syndicated through the AOL On network.
The series was made in partnership with GroupM Entertainment (GME) and produced with Broad Bean Media.

Hi! “other” mod Hannah here.
I may be in the unfortunate position of living on the other side of the world so I’ll probably never meet Sophie, but in some cases I’m lucky – Australia gets to see X-Men Apocalypse a week before the US! (Give me a moment to gloat… okay done).
I’m undeniably not close to the X-Men universe – I have seen all the films but I’ve always been a casual fan, and I’ve never seen an X-Men movie and come out of it thinking it was anything special. Apocalypse definitely changed that opinion. I can’t possibly preface this with “unbiased opinion” because… I literally co-run this Sophie site and, admittedly, I wouldn’t have been nearly as excited about it if she wasn’t in it. However, I can tell you that overall it is a genuinely good film, packed with emotional moments from several new and pre-loved characters, that stands up well against the oversaturation of superhero films around nowadays (and upon reflection, I think it is superior to Batman VS Superman).
Sophie Turner’s performance as Jean is amazing. Like she’s said before, her take is quite different from Famke Janssen’s – Famke’s older Jean is a lot more self assured and confident with her abilities, while Sophie’s Jean is a young girl struggling to control the growing powers within her. Sophie imbues the character with the kind of fragility and strength we know her to portray so well through Sansa Stark – and yet, she’s almost unrecognisable. She definitely shows her range in this film, nailing an American accent and showing this innate mental power that makes Jean such a unique mutant. You see why people might be afraid of her and the potential she possesses, while also feeling for how out of place in the world she feels because of it. She emits a calmness and kindness towards several key characters in the film, acting as a kind of intrinsic tether in the madness, but there’s a darker edge too. There have been rumours that X-Men might revisit the Dark Phoenix arc, and there’s no doubt in my mind Sophie would do incredible things with that material.
Overall, I appreciated the subtleties in Sophie’s portrayal but was blown away by the big moments she got, which she’s often not afforded on Game of Thrones. Jean was really given a lot of moments to shine in this film (I would even say that her arc was the strongest and most promising) and I do think audiences will warm to her immediately. I can imagine Sophie was pretty chuffed with some of her scene partners, and she held her own among some very experienced and prolific actors (one in particular is a nice surprise).
For the first time in my life I’m genuinely enthusiastic about X-Men and its future – all of the young actors shone (Tye Sheridan especially) and it will be wonderful to see how the universe progresses with these new faces. Loved it!
The ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Boardwalk Empire’ stars will appear in a segment to be directed by Tom van Avermaet.
Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner and Boardwalk Empire’s Jack Huston have signed up to star in a segment of the anthology film Berlin I Love You.
Belgium director Tom van Avermaet, who received an Oscar nomination for his 2012 short Death of a Shadow, will helm the segment, one of 10 shorts that will make up the feature-length omnibus. All are stories of romance set in the German capital.
The film is a sequel to the Cities of Love franchise following Paris je t’aime in 2006 and New York, I Love You in 2008.
Oren Moverman (The Messenger), Jan Ole Gerster (Oh Boy), Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis), Giuseppe Tornatore (Cinema Pardiso) and Chinese artist Ai Weiwei are among the helmers attached to direct episodes of the new film.
Avermaet’s segment will shoot this summer in Berlin. Claus Clausen and Edda Reiser are producing for Walk on Water Film along with Josef Steinberger of Rheingoldfilms. Emmanuel Benbihy, creator of the Cities of Love franchise, will act as executive producer.
Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones, next appears in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse.
Thanks to Jasha from the Nylon Magazine PR Team we were told about her upcoming issue appearance and she even sent us one of the photoshoot photos!
Sophie is featured in the May 2016 issue and you can read her interview early by heading over to the Nylon website here.
Just three days ahead of Game of Thrones‘ long-awaited return, HBO announced that it has ordered a seventh season of the swords-and-dragons drama.
The renewal announcement did not include the number of episodes in Season 7, though the series’ executive producers recently discussed the possibility of doing only seven episodes — instead of the usual 10 — in Season 7, then doing a final season of only six episodes. HBO would not confirm the number of episodes order for Season 7 at this time.
Additionally, HBO has ordered more Veep (Season 6) and Silicon Valley (Season 4), both of which will air in 2017.
