Speaking to Sky News, Turner explained, "I think it's time to say goodbye to Sansa. I'm ready... ish, to say goodbye to her. I think my watch has ended."
"It's been 10 years of my life and the best 10 years of my life by far," she went on to say. "I finished in a very happy place with Sansa and it's time to let her go. I feel like if I played her again it would be just be more trauma."
Turner recently spoke to the New York Times about how the popular series ending makes her feel, admitting, "I don't know. This whole time I felt like I've been prepared for it, and now that it's come to the day and it's over, it feels horrible. And, I'm doing a press day for my new movie but everyone keeps asking me about how I feel, and I just want to cry."

Turner also spoke about the highly controversial finale episode, she confessed that at the time of the interview she had not yet watched it.
"I haven't actually watched it yet because I was alone when it came out, and I truly can't be alone to watch it. But I read the script and I acted in it, so I kind of know what happens."
During that final episode of Game of Thrones, her character's brother Bran became "King Bran the Broken," with the actress reflecting on the said, "I suppose it was unexpected but it makes a lot of sense. The best way for us to move into the future is to look at our past and try to not make those mistakes that we did in the past. And he's the one person that knows everything, so it does make sense. It feels like he would be an incredibly fair ruler."
