Here’s what the 21-year-old Game of Thrones actress had to share with the mag:
Sophie on getting recognized in public: “I have had people come up to me and think I am Sansa and treat me as such. I’ve had a few greetings as ‘Lady Stark.’ It might be quite jarring to them because they come up to me and expect a stoic, cold person. And then they see me in shitty shorts and muddy trainers, and they are like, ‘Oh, she definitely doesn’t have handmaidens.’”
Sophie on what’s next for her in Game of Thrones: “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. And the ability to kind of hopefully bring the people that she loves back to her or create a safe haven if they do come back to her. It’s more about her figuring out how to treat that power and how to surround herself with the people that are best for her. This season is about trust and loyalty.”
Sophie on the end of Game of Thrones: “I’ve been trying to wrap my head around it. It’s not like I’m brushing it under the carpet; I am fully aware that it is coming to an end, but I don’t think I’ll be ready until I shoot my final scene, and then I think I will be completely an emotional wreck for the next year or so of my life. I’m really not looking forward to it. It is terrifying.”
