It attracted plenty of support online too, with over 1.2 million fans lending their signature to the campaign at the time of writing.

Turner, who will appear as Jean Grey in the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix film, spoke to the New York Times about fan reaction to the series finale.

Following last night's conclusion of HBO's Game of Thrones, Sophie Turner spoke with Entertainment Weekly about Sansa's fate at the end of the series finale. It changed how I watch scripted programming and made me want to find out more information about actors and how they felt about certain things that have to do for the TV show.

She also argued that it "shouldn't be such a negative things for fans" to watch the series subvert expectations and send characters down dark and unsafe paths. She said, "The thing about "Game of Thrones" that's always been incredible is the fact that there's always been insane twists and turns, right from Season 1 with Ned's beheading". In fact, the sartorial elements even filled in the blanks when it came to Daenerys Targaryen's (Emilia Clarke) Mad Queen arc and helped inject some real eeriness into her final moments of the show. "But I wasn't! It's just a quote from last season, but everyone figures that the pack really does survive, but it's just a moral that I like to live by".

Turner is far from the first Game of Thrones star to speak out about audience backlash.

The title is reminiscent of the Hardcore Title, which adopted a 24/7 rule when Crash Holly won the belt in February 2000. We'll have to wait just one day until we find out definitively when Foley makes the announcement on Raw.

The show's eighth and final season wrapped up on HBO Sunday night. "And, I'm doing a press day for my new movie but everyone keeps asking me about how I feel, and I just want to cry". And these fans know how much work went into all of this, and they're not questioning any of that. They put their souls into these characters, and they could be every bit as disappointed as we are.

Here is what they said.

"Having your adolescence being displayed in public, that's something I really wish hadn't happened", Turner said. "That's how I feel". She thought she was the princess in the story, and now her eyes have been brutally opened to the truth. "I don't know that there was any other way". "Suddenly, everyone's metabolism slows down at 17, 18 and then that's documented", she told the outlet. Sansa is delighted in going to King's Landing and her betrothal to the handsome Prince Joffrey Baratheon. However, Sansa Stark decided that the North should remain independent and she was later crowned Queen in the North. They said their "I Dos" in front of family and friends at the Little White Chapel just hours after the Billboard Music Awards.
