Ahead of Sunday’s highly anticipated Game Of Thrones finale, Sophie Turner has admitted that the conclusion to the series will upset some fans of the show, but added that there is a “very satisfying” end for her character Sansa Stark.

The 23-year-old actress also confessed that playing Lady of Winterfell for the last ten years has given her an “identity crisis”.

Speaking to The Sunday Times Magazine, Sophie said: “I’ve had a bit of an identity crisis to be honest, I’ve grown up for so many years as this character.

“If I wasn’t filming, I was promoting it, if I wasn’t promoting it then it was on TV.

“I was immersed in Sansa, so finally stepping out of it, I don’t actually know what I like to do or who I really am.”

Discussing the final episode, Sophie teased: “It’s a great ending, from my perspective, it’s very satisfying.”

She then added: “But I think a lot of people will be upset too.”

Sophie’s comments come just days after over 1 million fans signed a petition calling for the final series to be re-written.

However, the stars of the show have had absolutely no time for the backlash, which focused on a number of controversial developments in the HBO fantasy series.

Bran Stark actor Isaac Hempstead Wright has branded it “ridiculous” and “absurd”, while Jacob Anderson, who plays Grey Worm, called it “insulting”.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Isaac said: “It’s just absurd. I can’t even fathom it. It’s just ridiculous.

“It’s ridiculous that people think they can just demand a different ending because they don’t like it. I have stupidly taken it quite personally, which obviously I shouldn’t. In my opinion, it’s a great ending.’
