Interview Hints at the Fates of Three Major Game of Thrones Characters
Game of Thrones Season 7 promises everything we hoped it would - death, dragons, weird love triangles - as well as, of course, tension as the fight for the Iron Throne heats up.
A recent interview with Foxtel revealed the thoughts of Sophie Turner, Emilia Clarke, and Kit Harington on what they believe the fate of their respective characters may be.
The Foxtel exclusive revealed that this season's primary conflict may be between blood relatives Sansa, Daenerys, and Jon.
Kit Harington has already spilled to the public that his character "is in mortal danger like everyone else," now that the safety net of Season 6 has been lifted.
As he told Foxtel, "Season seven starts with a sense of 'down to business' for Jon Snow," and as newly crowned King of the North he seems to be up against some understandable challenges, not the least of which being his biggest rival to the Iron Throne, his aunt Dany.
Harington also hints at the inevitable White Walker battle, when he tells Foxtel, "The world is ending and he knows it's in real danger, but at least he's in a place where he can start addressing that in a real way and having people listen to him when he is warning them."
Sophie Turner, for one, wishes that Jon would do a little more listening himself.
If anyone deserves to be Queen of the North it's Sansa. But Turner thinks that the eldest Stark girl wishes (her half-brother? Cousin?) Jon Snow was more receptive.
"I think she definitely feels left out. There's a jealousy there," Turner states. "She feels she deserves the title of Queen in the North and it's an injustice that she hasn't been recognized for what she did."
"Not only are the Northerners in general not backing her, but neither is Jon. I think if Jon was appreciative and spoke to her about it then she wouldn't have a problem with all the Northern Lords not bowing down to her. All she wants is the respect of her brother."
Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, mentioned that she would be disappointed if her character didn't end the series on the Iron Throne.
But either way, she tells Foxtel that it has been "Lovely and fulfilling to play one of the many strong, powerful women in the show."
"It's a woman's world now!"
Game of Thrones returns to HBO on July 16th.
