There’s no denying that Sansa Stark wants to be in charge — and in Game of Thrones Season 7, Episode 3 she finally had her chance. Sophie Turner — who plays the eldest Stark daughter — recently shared her thoughts on Sansa’s fate in the series and how much she’s changed since the first season.
Last week’s episode showed Jon Snow (played by Kit Harrington) visiting Dragonstone to appeal to Daenerys Targaryen. The King of the North left his sister (cough cousin) in charge during his absence, which leaves fans wondering how she will rule.

“Sansa has [been around] all of these master manipulators, especially Littlefinger,” Sophie explained at San Diego Comic-Con on July 21. “She’s been absorbing and adapting, and in my opinion she is just as good at playing the game as he is. She trusts no one, whether it be man or woman, family member or not.”
The 21-year-old Brit is right about her character’s evolution. In fact, the audience was introduce to Sansa as a pretty girl from a powerful family who only cared about becoming queen one day. Now, after experiencing (and surviving) the death of her family, being held hostage in Westeros, and an evil husband it seems she is ready to take back some power for herself.
Even Jon is noticing how she’s changed. In the Season 7 premiere he accused her of admiring Cersei Lannister (played by Lena Headey). And while Sansa denied his claim she did admit to learning a lot from her. We all want to see Sansa succeed… We just hope it won’t be at Jon’s expense!
