Sophie Turner lashes out at petition to remake final season of Game of Thrones; calls it disrespectful


Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner has said that the petition to remake the final season is "disrespectful" to the whole team. Sophie played the role of Sansa Stark in the show, aired in India on Star World.

She referred to's petition calling for a remake of the last season of HBO's adaptation of George R.R. Martin's fantasy books. The petition has got over one million signatures. "Honestly, I'm not surprised. People always have an idea in their heads of how they want a show to finish, and so when it doesn't go to their liking, they start to speak up about it and rebel," a newspaper quoted Sophie saying. 


Sansa, Thank you for teaching me resilience, bravery and what true strength really is. Thank you 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. 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.

Sophie added, "The thing about Game of Thrones that's always been amazing is the fact that there's always been crazy twists and turns, right from Season 1 with Ned's beheading. So Daenerys becoming something of the Mad Queen -- it shouldn't be such a negative thing for fans. It's a shock for sure, but I think it's just because it hasn't gone their way.

"All of these petitions and things like that -- I think it's disrespectful to the crew, and the writers, and the filmmakers who have worked tirelessly over 10 years, and for 11 months shooting the last season. Like 50-something night shoots. So many people worked so, so hard on it, and for people to just rubbish it because it's not what they want to see is just disrespectful."

The show wrapped up with a final episode on Monday morning. In the end, Sophie's character becomes the new Queen in the North, and her younger brother Bran, played by Isaac Hempstead Wright, became King of the Six Kingdoms in an unexpected twist.
