“I feel it’s time to say goodbye to Sansa. I’m ready-ish to say goodbye to her,” the U.Ok. native informed Sky News.
“It’s been 10 years of my life and the best 10 years of my life, by far,” Turner continued. “I finished in a very happy place with Sansa and it’s time to let her go. I feel like if I played her again, it would be — just be more trauma.”
Game of Thrones ended after eight seasons on May 19. While Turner has expressed her lack of curiosity in becoming a member of a Game of Thrones spinoff, there are derivatives of the original series in the works.
“We’re having conversations about how can we neatly proceed the Game of Thrones universe,” Bob Greenblatt, the WarnerMedia chairman and HBO overseer, shared with Deadline in April. “But we have to be really thoughtful about not killing the golden goose and not putting on shows that aren’t up to that quality level, and how many is too many.”
Turner marked her skilled appearing debut upon showing in Game of Thrones in 2011. Hours earlier than the finale aired, the English expertise shared a farewell post on Instagram about her time on the collection and the way portraying Sansa has allowed her to grow.
“Sansa, Thank you for teaching me resilience, bravery and what true strength really is,” her post began. “Thank you [for] teaching me to be kind and patient and to lead with love. I grew up with you. I fell in love with you at 13 and now 10 years on.. at 23 I leave you behind, but I will never leave behind what you’ve taught me.”
Added Turner: “To the show and the incredible people who make it, thank you for giving me the best life and drama lessons I could have ever asked for. Without you, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Thank you for giving me this chance all those years ago. And finally to the fans. Thank you for falling in love with these characters and supporting this show right through till the end. I’ll miss this more than anything.”
