My fave characters (in no particular order) number 41

Sansa Stark

Game of Thrones

Sophie Turner

I like this character a lot, even when the series starts, because she begins as a normal teenage girl, raised in a loving family. Yes she might be a little too blinded by Joffrey’s good looks, but she’s a good natured girl, who cares deeply about her family, and her dog. I could relate to the relationship that she has with Arya, two very different people who don’t agree very often, but love each other nevertheless because they are from the same family.

She has a core of steel, enduring the death of her father, and the many humiliations that Joffrey and the rest of the Lannisters impose on her, with a calm exterior. The scene in which Joffrey tells his sergeant at arms to physically abuse her, is horrific, but Turner’s performance turns Sansa from a confused teenager, to a woman whose deportment and manner could be that of someone twice her age, clip uploaded by dfective11.

I like the connection that Sansa has with Margery, Turner and Dormer playing the two as attempting to be genuine friends, taking a little solace in each other’s company in the midst of the oppressive court. clip uploaded by Tormund Giantsbane

The progression of Sansa during the seasons, seems to be organic, and I am looking forward to seeing how much stronger she can become in season six.
