There are lots of characters on “Game of Thrones” who want to sit on the Iron Throne. Although Tommen Baratheon (Lannister) currently sits on it, Daenerys Targaryen thinks the Throne is hers. Stannis Baratheon, on the other hand, died trying to get it. But will someone else entirely seize the Throne when the show’s final season rolls around? Will Sansa Stark end up on the Iron Throne after the series finale?
Sansa just might. Or at least, the actress who plays her thinks she’d want to rule over Westeros in the end. According to Bustle, Sophie Turner and her “Game of Thrones” actors recently discussed the endings they’d want for themselves. The “X-Men: Apocalypse” star only sees big things happening to her character.
“I feel she’d want Sansa and Littlefinger to end up on the Throne,” the actress said. Turner can picture Sansa on the Iron Throne. She thinks Petyr Baelish, or Littlefinger, will help her seize it. In Turner’s “perfect ending” for Sansa, Littlefinger will also serve as her Hand. This is a bit surprising, coming from the actress. The last time Sansa and Baelish met on the show didn’t exactly go well. Sansa is still mad at him for marrying her off to Ramsay Bolton. Does this mean Sansa will forgive him eventually? No word as of yet to confirm this.
The Throne isn’t the only thing Turner wants for Sansa. The actress also wants Sansa to be “reunited with her whole family, even the dead ones.”
Meanwhile, according to Entertainment Weekly, Turner’s co-stars also see themselves rising in the end. Maisie Williams, the actress who plays Arya on the show, prefers it if her character “rises to the top.” Emilia Clarke, on the other hand, wants Daenerys to “get to Westeros riding on the back of [her] dragon…and pick up the throne.”
