"Game of Thrones" fans still have another month to go before the show returns for its sixth season, and while the epic first trailer has gotten viewers excited about the new episodes, the show's cast is pretty pumped, too. Emilia Clarke (a.k.a. Daenerys Targaryen) has already promised that season six will be the biggest spectacle in television history, and now, Sophie Turner has also teased some big things ahead -- and has made a rather interesting demand for the fate of her character, Sansa Stark.
In an interview with the WSJ Cafe, Turner said that season six would set itself apart from previous seasons because before, characters were spreading out, and now, "everything is kind of coming together, and storylines are intertwining, and people are forming alliances with other characters, and everyone's kind of coming towards the same goal."
For Sansa -- who, yes, did survive that jump at the end of season five -- that means a more assertive role than we've seen her play before.
"This season is about her taking charge and being a leader, rather than just being a pawn in someone else's game," Turner told WSJ. "So this is a big season for her. She's really gonna thrive this season."
As for Sansa's ultimate fate, Turner admitted that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss won't tell her anything, despite the fact that she "constantly pester[s]" them. But she has one very specific request.
"I don't want to survive," the actress told WSJ. "I think if you're on 'Game of Thrones' and you don't have a cool death scene, then what's the point? I think it would be really disappointing if I got to the end and I was just okay."
Turner may just get her wish, since she teased that there would be some big shocks in the episodes ahead, on par with season three's infamous Red Wedding episode.
"'Game of Thrones' never disappoints," she said. " ... This is the best season yet, and it's really gonna blow people's minds. Fans are going to be very happy with this season."
Season six of "Game of Thrones" premieres on HBO on April 24.
