“It was really cool scene to film, but oh, it was horrible at the same time because I can’t sing… But, I did feel very empowered doing it,” Sophie told AccessHollywood.com of the moment Sansa finally found her voice and showed her mettle, before leading the women in a hymn.
For the teenage Brit, her current fears aren’t about singing, but school exams. Yet, with just days until the show’s Season 2 finale, Sophie put the books down to discuss the “Blackwater” episode with Access, the fans’ interest in “SanSan” (Sansa and Sandor Clegane), and what lies ahead for her redheaded character.
Access: One of the things that was so sweet this season was Sandor… his affection for, and protection of Sansa. Will anything continue or is he out the door at the end of 9?
Sophie: I don’t think you see much after Episode 9 of Sandor until next season, but hopefully there will be a development yet again in Sansa and Sandor’s relationship. I love their relationship, I think it’s a very complicated one, but I think it’s very beautiful, in a way, because Sandor’s been through so much and he’s been at the hands of bullying from his older brother, and he’s seeing this happen to Sansa, who is very vulnerable, not in terms of mental ability, but in terms of physicality.
