Sophie Turner has given an explanation for that ‘Game of Thrones’ tattoo she got which caused a hullabaloo.
The tattoo, which includes the Stark family symbol of a direwolf alongside the words ‘The pack survives’, debuted earlier in the week around the time that Turner spoke about how her charcter Sansa’s storyline reflects the #MeToo movement.
Turner appeared on James Corden’s talk show last night where she was asked about the tat.
Corden said: “Just last week, lots of ‘Game of Thrones’ fans were upset. There was a huge furore because you have got a new tattoo and people were mad and crazy because they thought you were giving away the final spoiler to the final season. Would you like to address this?”
After revealing the tat on her arm, Turner explained: “Actually while I was getting it done, people advised me not to because it looked like I was giving everything away but I wasn’t. It’s just a quote from last season. Everyone figures that the pack really does survive but it’s just a moral that I like to live by.”
Corden’s retort is perfect as he says “Well, why don’t you just put us out of our misery and tell us how the upcoming final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ ends?”
Turner replies: “I’ll just get it tattooed on my forehead next time.”
Earlier this week, another GOT star, Emilia Clarke, posted a heartfelt goodbye to the show while Kit Harrington, who plays Jon Snow in the series, talked about how he intends to get away from being associated with the character from here on.
