Game of Thrones released an interesting teaser for season 7, which featured behind-the-set scenes and a general glimpse of the penultimate season of the HBO show. The 2-minute-long teaser was revealed during the San Diego Comic-Con panel on Friday (22 July).
Apart from the teaser release; the show's cast including Sophie Turner, and actors Kristian Nairn and Iwan Rheon (whose characters are already dead on the show) debated on who sits on the throne.
Season 6 finale of the HBO fantasy ended on a dubious note with a hint towards a potentially strained relationship between Turner played Sansa Stark and Kit Harrington played Jon Snow.
The X-Men actress addressed the situation on Friday to reveal that her character might not be with team Jon Snow when it comes to siding with the ultimate ruler of Westeros.
"I'm not sure she thinks Jon is capable of running Winterfell and the North," Turner said adding "I don't think she thinks he has the intellect, the experience — and I concur. He has wonderful morals, those Stark morals, [so she thinks] that inevitably he'll make the good decision, but whether it's going to benefit anyone is another story."
After the Battle of the Bastards, the 20-year-old English actress; who literally helped Jon win the war with the aid of Knights of Vale, has emerged as an important character in the show. Shedding light on the possibility of Sansa ruling the seven kingdoms, Turner said, "I have no idea if she's going to become a real leader or if she's going to become completely sadistic, but we'll soon find out."
Interestingly, popular fan theories regarding Game Of thrones season 7 that originate from Reddit were also discussed during the Comic-Con event. So, will Sansa marry Jon to claim the throne? Probably not, according to Turner and show creator DB Weiss.
"Jon likes redheads, but Jon and Sansa have grown up together, they're basically siblings," she jokingly said adding, "if you (executive producers) make anything happen, I will kill you."
"It hadn't occurred to us, but thank you," Weiss concluded.
Game of Thrones bid goodbye to several fan-favourite characters in the last season; and the most sad demise was of Kristian Nairn played Hodor. The 40-year-old Irish actor, who sacrificed his life for Bran Stark in season 6 episode 5, was thrilled with the fan-support for his character. "I did not expect it to be so crazy. I'm really flattered."
