But now, she has finally broken her silence over the petition and also reveals her reaction to her character being crowned the Queen in the North.

Turner told the New York Times in an interview published Monday that it's "disrespectful" for viewers of the series who are angry with the show's ending - just because it wasn't what they had hoped for - to have started a petition to remake the final season.

Following last night's conclusion of HBO's Game of Thrones, Sophie Turner spoke with Entertainment Weekly about Sansa's fate at the end of the series finale.

No matter what you might think of Game of Thrones' final season, we can probably all agree that the costumes were just divine.

"He was, like, 'I can't be with you until you love yourself. It's a shock for sure, but I think it's just because it hasn't gone their way", she said. Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, lashed out at not just the petition-signers, but any critic of the show, telling naysayers to "go f-k themselves." Sansa's signature necklace, for example, contains a needle wink to Arya (Maisie Williams), her pre-season poster gown was a scaly nod to House Tully, and, most recently, her exquisite Queen in the North coronation gown is a subtle tribute to the only queen Sansa ever liked: Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer).

Bucs release 6-time Pro Bowler Gerald McCoy
At 7 pm Monday, news broke that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers plan to release six-time Pro Bowler Gerald McCoy . Tampa Bay apparently worked with McCoy on the matter and wants him to find a suitable home.

Able to command a room - or, as in Sunday's series finale, a council of Westeros' most prominent lords and ladies - with little more than a look, Turner has brought a graceful and commanding presence to every scene, even ones where she is a supporting player.

The actress went on to criticise a popular fan petition demanding that season eight be rewritten and reproduced. "Then she goes back to Winterfell and returns to her mother's hair".

Talking about her role, she said: "I loved it".

"Finding the words to write this post has left me overwhelmed with how much I want to say but how small words feel in comparison to what this show and Dany have meant to me", Clarke wrote. "I think he kind of saved my life, in a way". "Calorie counting, everything. 'Oh, I'll just eat nuts today.' I stopped having my period for a year-that's when I made a decision to have therapy.I just think it's so important everyone should have a therapist, honestly". Your character makes a choice, and you need to be right with that. "I'll miss this more than anything".
