'Game Of Thrones': Sophie Turner Wants Sansa And Jon Snow To Rule The North Together
At the end of the season 6 finale of "Game of Thrones," Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was hailed the King of the North after he successfully reclaimed Winterfell from the Boltons. Sophie Turner, however, wants Jon to share his position with her character Sansa, not because the she had a huge contribution in defeating the Bolton forces, but because the actress thinks that they would make a great duo.
"I kind of want them to rule as a double act -- Queen of the North and King of the North," Turner told TheWrap. "In terms of ... military knowledge and all that kind of stuff, [Jon is] so clued-up and he knows exactly what to do. I mean you saw him in the Battle of the Bastards. Sansa, [on the other hand], she's kind of all over the place. She knows pretty much how all family works in the Seven Kingdoms. So she has that kind of knowledge and that insight, and so I always thought that the two of them together would be a wonderful team."
"I don't think Jon is capable of ruling on his own, and I'm not really sure that Sansa is capable of ruling on her own," the 20-year-old actress added. "I think together they would be the strongest, but that's the case with all of the Starks."
Although Turner thinks that Jon and Sansa would make a great team ruling the North, the "X-Men: Apocalypse" star believes that her character has more of a claim on Winterfell than anyone else following their retrieval of the castle from the Boltons last season.
"She tirelessly has worked so hard to get Winterfell back and constantly been battling with these men, trying to prove herself as a real contender and a real player, and she kind of feels like she deserves the recognition for it, but she's not satisfied now," Turner told Variety. "I think she's got a lot more things on her checklist to do before she's completely satisfied."
