Turner said Sansa will have a kind of a “power trip,” but she also remains to be insecure because “there are threats to the power that she holds.” Among all Game of Thrones Season 7 cast, Sansa has always followed the orders of her elders, even during the time she was held like a prisoner at the Lannisters’.
It was only after being married to Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), dealing with her Aunt Lysa (Kate Dickie) and Petyr Baelish (Aidan Gillen), and being abused by Ramsay that she finally had the courage to seek her half-brother, Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) and reclaim Winterfell, their homestead.
