Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, in a recent interview with Variety also spoke about her character from the upcoming season, which she says will debut in 2019.

Game of Thrones has had a pretty consistent schedule, airing a new season annually, since it premiered in 2011. While discussing her future projects of Dark Phoenix and Girl Who Fell From the Sky, Turner slipped in that Game of Thrones would premiere in 2019, a fact that HBO has not officially confirmed yet. "No, no, we've got six or seven months left".

Mark 2019 in your diaries, GoT fans: winter is here. She was back at Winterfell, and was the Lady there with a strong army to command.

"And without Littlefinger, it's a test for her of whether she can get through it". On the eighth season working a huge number of people to make the final of the Saga is incredibly spectacular and epic. When I read the script for the last season, all together, it was very moving.

Liam Cunninham, Sophie Turner, Jacob Anderson and Conleth Hill speaking onstage at Comic-Con International 2017 Game Of Thrones panel And Q+A Session at San Diego Convention Centre. "This season is more a passionate fight for her than a political, manipulative kind of fight", Turner said.

"All of the Americans wanted to come over".

Sophie also teased how the absence of Littlefinger will affect Sansa in the coming season, saying: 'It's going to be tricky for her, because at the end of the last season, she felt she had everything set up. Then we try to profit, to be together more, to go to the table together more often ... "We're all trying not to take it for granted any more".

Even outside the show, which is filled with the suffering and brutal deaths of your favorite characters, Game of Thrones showrunners like to torture fans by slowly reducing the number of episodes each year, then gradually extending the wait between seasons.
