The fourth in my series of character countdowns, marking 12 days until the seven kingdoms once again grace our screens. Today my focus is on the highly underappreciated Sansa Stark – beautifully played by Sophie Turner. Sure she screws up in season one – but BOY does she pay for it. And remember – she is just being a typical lovelorn teen dreaming of her prince. Is it her fault that he is a psychopath? I think not. All hail the survivor that is Sansa Stark – here are her top five moments
1. SMALL VICTORIES
Her betrothed is the most hated man in the seven kingdoms, but even black and blue Sansa can score a point against the sadist.
2. THE WOLF AND THE ROSE
A rare moment of friendship for the little dove, with love lessons from a rather more ‘experienced’ queen-in-waiting.
The moment that signaled her as a true player of the game – a reinvention from ingenue to queen of the north.
The dream of home has become a nightmare, but the little Stark is still stronger on home turf…
The defiant bravery that lead to the leap of faith.
