Sophie Turner’s character of Sansa Stark is one that many fans love to hate. But Turner is taking the fan’s apathy in stride.
“At first it kind of came as a shock because people didn’t like Sansa; she isn’t a fan favorite. A lot of fans that recognize me go, ‘I kind of hate you,’ and I’m all, ‘Cool, well, you’ve just made this sufficiently awkward.’ I thought I was being personally attacked, but I knew I wasn’t. It was all new to me,” she tells Blastr. “[Sansa’s] the least favorite in the books so I guess I’m doing my job if I’m the least favorite in the show. Now I don’t really read [online comments] and I’m pretty happy with reactions to Sansa because she’s a kick-ass character.”
