Sophie Turner talked to New York Times about the end of Game of Thrones, and she did not have any good words to say about that petition miffed fans have been signing asking to remake season 8, the show's final season, because they couldn’t accept the episodes' writing. FYI-That petition now has over 1.3 million signatures.
Initially, Turner addressed the criticism the show's end had received in a thoughtful manner but then straight up called the petition "disrespectful."
"Honestly, I’m not surprised," she started off the criticism. "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 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."
Then she targeted the Change.org petition: "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."
She said that she is satisfied with the way things ended for her character Sansa, who became Queen of the North. "I loved it. It’s the only place that she really, truly feels safe," Turner said. "It’s the place that she’s the most capable of ruling. She would be a fair and loving ruler, and it’s what she’s been striving for this whole series: to go back home, to protect her home. And finally she has that."She also explains why Bran Stark won the Iron Throne: "King Bran the Broken. I suppose it was unexpected but it makes a lot of sense. The best way for us to move into the future is to look at our past and try to not make those mistakes that we did in the past. And he’s the one person that knows everything, so it does make sense. It feels like he would be an incredibly fair ruler."
But one of the most surprising confessions of her is that she hasn't seen the finale yet; she just knows it as she was present in the shooting. "I haven’t actually watched it yet because I was alone when it came out, and I truly can’t be alone to watch it," she said. "But I read the script and I acted in it, so I kind of know what happens." Shocking!
