Cult Interview

'Game of Thrones' stars Sophie Turner, Rose Leslie interviews - video

By and Tom Mansell
Game of Thrones stars Sophie Turner and Rose Leslie have spoken to Digital Spy about the fantasy drama's future.

The HBO hit's second season is out now on DVD, with a third season set to premiere in the coming weeks in the US and UK.


Turner - who plays Sansa Stark - told DS that the new episodes - based on George RR Martin's novel A Storm of Swords - will see her character share more scenes with Tyrion (Peter Dinklage).

"He's just a really funny guy - he's just like Tyrion, to be honest, but doesn't drink as much!" she laughed.

Unlike many of her co-stars, Turner revealed that she has resisted reading Martin's novels to learn her character's fate.

"I do want to find out what happens in the very end - who doesn't?" she said. "But George isn't telling me, and [showrunners] David Benioff and Dan Weiss aren't telling me, so I've kind of given up now!"

Rose Leslie - who made her debut as Ygritte in season two - admitted that she has had "a lot of fun" playing her wild character, who has a "playful" relationship with Kit Harrington's Jon Snow.

"Not only is she strong and powerful, but her ruthlessness is also balanced with how playful she is - she enjoys teasing Jon Snow!" Leslie explained.
