Sophie Turner in Game of Thrones

All is not well at Winterfell in "Game of Thrones" Season 8.

Ahead of the hit HBO fantasy drama's April 14 premiere date, star Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) opened up about some turmoil we'll see her character embroiled in when the show returns. Specifically, she teased tension among House Stark during a recent Entertainment Weekly interview. It seems Sansa will be less than pleased to learn that her half-brother (but actual cousin) Jon Snow (Kit Harington) has bent the knee to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).

Jon's new allegiance to Daenerys will cause "a huge amount of fighting" between him and Sansa, Turner said. The actress added that her character is considers Daenerys "power-hungry and not the rightful queen." Meanwhile, we know Sansa is capable of her own maneuvering to hold onto power -- and that is just what she'll do. Turner teased that she "has to go behind a few backs and risks tearing apart her family."

Watching these new dynamics at play will be fascinating, especially when the Army of the Dead is bearing down on them. But, alas, there isn't much of the show left; we're headed into the final six episodes.

"Game of Thrones" Season 8 premieres Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
