Sophie Turner on Littlefinger's Game of ThronesManipulations: 'She's Woke Now'

But they weren't the only ones talking about the coming season.

Sansa Stark is woke now, Alfie Allen has a cute dog and everyone got sick of answering all those questions about whether Jon Snow was dead or alive, but little else was revealed at the annual "Game of Thrones" panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday.

Personally, I find this to be media misdirection, and it would seem Sophie Turner herself is skeptical of the "worst case scenario" of this scheming: Littlefinger uses manipulation to turn Sansa against Jon.

It now remains to be seen who's really manipulating who between Sansa and Littlefinger.

Admitting that Sansa earlier frequently fell prey to Littlefinger's (played by Aidan Gillen) schemes, Turner told host Kristian Nairn - who portrayed Hodor - that the character "has grown and has been manipulated by these people [after] silently absorbing and learning and adapting". She added a "thanks guys" when the crowd roared in approval.

Philippine leader says he won't visit US, adds 'it's lousy'
Meanwhile, Duterte's spokesman said President Trump had lauded his Filipino counterpart for doing a "great job" against narcotics. James McGovern (D-MA), co-chair of the commission, said that he would lead the protest if Duterte comes to the White House.

Turner also thinks that Sansa has - understandably - become jaded by her experiences in Westeros, and no longer believes in love the way her idealistic younger self did. "I can relate." While going through her teens while working on the show was hard, the British actress will always be grateful for the role as it taught her more than she ever would have done at drama school.

Christie, who also has a pivotal role in another property that inspires feverish fandom, Star Wars, said that she always loved Star Wars because it "gives a sense of home".

"She sees the reality of the situation". "In terms of seeing men in a different light.I think she sees the world in a different light".

"She's cautious, she trusts no-one, whether it be man or woman. There's still that sexism that's ingrained in the culture", she said.

"And I think that's important when you play the Game Of Thrones". And methinks Littlefinger is in for a rude awakening too when push comes to knife-in-the-back shove at the end of season 7.
