i really can’t get over just how GREAT sophie turner’s acting is. she often gets so little to actually say or do, but somehow it results in some of the most powerful acting in the whole show.
she’s just so perfect and subtle and internal - people often say that you can’t properly translate Sansa to the screen because a lot of her chapters are her internal thought processes but you can just see the pain and anger deep inside of her through her body language but most importantly, just through her eyes, and it’s utterly remarkable. i continue to be blown away.
OH and not to mention it feels extra authentic because she cares a lot about book!sansa. She not only uses the script but she reads the chapters closely to get into her headspace and to flesh her out more. (She blurs book and show Sansa to the extent where she mistakes quotes from the show with those from the books in interviews, "I think she always has good lines each season. And then there was: “There are no heroes; in life, the monsters always win.” and she’s used “courtesy is a lady’s armour”, too).
#sophie turner is a gift and a prodigy #i am just genuinely so impressed #sansa stark #sophie turner #and i think as evidenced by the most recent episode - grrm stresses how withdrawn sansa is #and him not giving her many lines did not mean she didn’t get less screentime #there’s just so much pressure on that kind of acting? bc you don’t have words to play out? #it’s literally just you and your face and your emotion and i dont think many other actors could do what sophie’s doing #apparently one of her audition scenes was when she sees ned’s head and considers pushing joffrey and that’s when they knew #that she was sansa #it makes me sad she’ll probably never be recognised with awards and stuff for all this #because she deserves it
