Sophie Turner has played Sansa Stark since she was 15 years old! It was tough watching her grow up as a political prisoner, and while many fans criticized the older Stark sister for not being more violent and aggressive, most have come around. Probably since Sansa slapped Robin Arryn and jumped into a snowpile Jason Bourne-style. Or maybe it was this moment:

When Sophie Turner isn't pretending to be Sansa and avoiding death and marriage, she's giving funny interviews and posting silly photos on instagram and proving that she is an IRL queen.
