Winter is coming and the eighth and final season of the HBO's Game of Thrones is finally here.
Love it or hate it, you know that Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) is integral to the plotline and that she's got major stakes in the last season, which premieres on April 15. The lady of Winterfell Sophie Turner will reunite with Jon Snow, Bran, and Arya Stark to save the living from the white walkers and protect the iron throne.
We watched Sophie grow up onscreen; Game of Thrones launched much of the young cast - namely Maisie Williams, Emilia Clarke, and Kit Harington - to superstardom. Sansa has endured quite the journey since the early days of season one in Winterfell - then King's Landing - and back to the North. But it's safe to say she's won our hearts - no dragons, dire wolf, bratty teenage kings, or White Walkers necessary.
One can’t help but look at Sophie Turner’s red carpet beauty evolution — cascading waves and intricately braided updos - and think she must have taken a little inspiration from Sansa Stark. Then again, with hair like that, she has no reason not to. In honour of its big premiere, we took a look back at Sophie’s beauty evolution from one of her first GOT red carpets in 2012 to now.
