Bryan Cogman: Now i think Sansa gets a bad rap. I’m gonna— I’m gonna address some critics of Sansa. She is one of my favorite characters, and I have great affection for her as a character. […] I think Sansa— she’s been told that the world is a certain way, and through the course of this season and indeed the series finds out that it’s not. And some people find her behavior annoying and selfish, but she’s a kid—she’s a teenage girl, you know, and—
Kit Harington: I have to agree with you. I really like Sansa in the books. I have no objections to her at all. I think she’s misguided in a lot of ways, but she’s by no means in any way lesser than any of the other children. I think she does some brilliant things in the books—like when she stands up to Joffrey with the dismembered heads. I love that moment.
Bryan: I think in many ways some of the stuff she does in the later episodes are every bit as heroic as the things that Arya does. She just has to play a different game than Arya.
—1x04 “Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things” Audio Commentary
“If you had no sword training, were taught only how to be a Lord’s wife, were a highly valuable captive among a sea of enemies, feared horrible abuse, and had loved ones falling like flies at the age of 13, I’d be really interested in hearing how you’d handle your situation.”
Motha’fuckin’ real talk.
YES. GOOD. THIS. YES.
