This Character Has Changed The Most On ‘Game of Thrones’– According to the Showrunners

Things have certainly changed quite a bit since the pilot episode of Game of Thrones. Alliances have shifted, battles have been won, and a ton of people have lost their heads. One of the best things about Game of Thrones — and why the series is so beloved across the globe is that the character development is insane. Though HBO only gives us a handful of episodes each season — GoT showrunners/creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss have made the audience care about the characters so deeply that we are fully invested in their transformations.

From Jon Snow — who went from the downtrodden Bastard of Winterfell to Aegon Targaryen and Daenerys Targaryen who was the sold bride of Dorthraki leader Khal Drogo and became Daenerys of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons we’ve watched every character on Game of Thrones change and grow. But which character has changed this most.

Which Game of Thrones character has changed the most?

According to David Benioff and Dan Weiss –Sansa Stark has changed the most throughout Game of Thrones’ eight seasons. When we first met Sansa in Season 1, she was a whiny and insufferable little brat who only wanted to play with her dolls and marry a prince. Unfortunately, life came at Sansa extremely fast, and she was forced to grow up in the cruelest ways possible. Benioff and Weiss told Entertainment Weekly,

She started out so naive and was forced to undergo the most brutal possible education into the world but emerged from it and became this powerful figure and kind of against all odds. I don’t think too many people watching the first season had any expectation that Sansa would become the woman that she became.

Will Sansa Stark die in Season 8 of Game of Thrones?

We have just a few episodes left of Game of Thrones before it’s gone for good –and we already know that a bloodbath is coming. However, Sansa Stark has been able to withstand everything that has been done to her. Now that she’s the Lady of Winterfell and a strategic mastermind we thing she can go the distance. After all, her little sister Arya described her as the smartest person she’s ever met.

Yet, Sophie Turner who portrays Sansa on the series has everyone convinced that her character is going to die. Turner posted a photo on Instagram of herself dressed as Sansa wrapped in a fuzzy blue blanket–asleep on set. She captioned the photo, “In honour of the final season of Thrones premiering tonight …. Here’s a picture of me asleep on set.”

Now fans are convinced that Sansa is going to die this season. Almost immediately, Turner’s comment section was in shambles with remarks like, “Wake up Sansa!!!!!!!,” “You definitely look dead here but okay,” “Is this a spoiler ???” and DOES THIS MEAN THAT SANSA IS GONNA DIE.” Neither Turner nor anyone from the Game of Thrones camp has commented on these theories, so we’re just going to continue to fall apart over here.
