The Queen of the North is not happy with some of our antics!
Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on the HBO series, was asked in a recent interview about the fan-made petition to redo season 8, which many fans see as a decline in quality.
“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,” the actress said in reference to general dissatisfaction.
On the viral petition, in particular, she added, “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.”
Despite a mixed reaction from fans, the finale episode of the show set a ratings record.
