Sophie Turner Talks All Things 'Game Of Thrones' For 'Town & Country' Mag

Sophie Turner walks out of the secret garden on the February 2015 cover of Town & Country magazine.

Here’s what the 18-year-old Game of Thrones actress had to say:

On the show’s depiction of, and attitudes towards, women: “It’s based on history, on the Wars of the Roses, on Tudor times, where women didn’t really have a position in the world. But because it’s also fantasy, because it doesn’t need to completely recreate mediaeval times, they can put in these really strong female characters who have a voice in the world, really empowered women who can say what they want – like Daenerys, like Cersei, like Brienne of Tarth.”

On attending the casting call for Game of Thrones: “I didn’t even tell my mum about the first auditions, but by the final audition in London, I said to myself, ‘I’ll die if I don’t get this part. I just know Sansa too well. I can’t not get it.’”

On not knowing which characters will be killed off: “I think we’re all very used to it by now. David and Dan will write in fake death scenes just to freak us all out, which is really not fun. We’re very much on the edge of our seat. They sign us up for all of the seasons, so we don’t even know via contract if we’re safe or not. We’re all expecting it – it’s ‘Game of Thrones’, after all.”

The February issue of Town & Country is out on February 3rd.
