Sansa Stark hasn’t been lucky with men.
He was betrothed to marry Joffrey Baratheon. Although he was seemingly charming at first, he turned out to be a heartless and hot-tempered psychopath. Sansa is relieved of Joffrey’s torments after he died, but she still had to suffer a loveless marriage with Tyrion Lannister. After escaping King’s Landing, Sansa was forced to marry someone even worse than Joffrey—the merciless and sadistic Ramsay Bolton.
In Game of Thrones Season 6, Sansa appears to be technically single. Is she ready to have another man in her life or does she prefer to be in a relationship with a woman, given her unsuccessful unions with men? Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, actress Sophie thinks the latter is not exactly a bad idea.
“In the ‘GoT’ universe, I think she’s going to have to swing the other way – because the men thing isn’t working for her,” Turner reveals. And who would be her perfect female match?
“Judging by Sansa’s relationship with Margaery … probably Margaery,” she adds.
In Game of Thrones Season 3, Sansa really hit it off with Margaery Tyrell. The two were able to talk openly with one another, and Margaery was able to comfort Sansa when she was at a low point. What’s more, Margaery even invited Sansa to live with her in Highgarden.
But Sophie Turner is widening her horizons and expanding her options. Knowing that nothing seems to be unusual or impossible in the Game of Thrones realm, Turner suggests that it would also be nice to see her in a romantic scene with Maisie Williams, who plays Turner’s onscreen little sister Arya.

“Or [Sansa could get it on with] Arya – because I’d like to see that happen,” Turner jokes.
Meanwhile, Sansa Stark is definitely proving in Game of Thrones Season 6 that she will no longer allow herself to be used or controlled by men. In recent episodes, she’s been gaining confidence and power.
“So just doing her own thing and trying to make people listen to her. It’s very much about her taking her own path,” she teases, Los Angeles Times reports.
Sophie Turner currently stars as Jean Grey in “X-Men: Apocalypse.”
Game of Thrones Season 6 airs every Sunday night on HBO.
