Sansa Stark is currently breaking the internet. HBO’s clip showing the Lady of the North and The Mother Of Dragons, meet was one very viral ten second clip. Turns out, Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa on Game of Thrones did a great many things to fit into Sansa’s shoes. That includes, going without washing her hair for months at a time.
The Hair Nightmare
In a candid interview with Instyle, the Game of Thrones star shed light on how much she had to do to be ‘Sansa’. Speaking of which, most characters on GoT, save for Khaleesi and Cersei, showcased a greasy hairdo throughout. With a story set in the backdrop of the middle age, Sansa sported really greasy hair during her trials on Game of Thrones.
For the first few seasons I was allowed to wash my hair because I was an aristocratic young girl, but toward season five they started asking me to not wash my hair, and it was really disgusting.Sophie Turner
Sophie was 13 years old when she first played the role of Sansa in Game of Thrones. Turner, 22 now, recollects her horrific hair routine for the role. A natural blonde by birth, Sophie had dyed her hair red to play Sansa. Not washing her hair, artificial snow getting stuck in it, and continually dying it red, had caused a lot of hairfall. Thankfully, she now gets to wash her hair whenever needed.
Now I wear a wig, so I can wash my hair whenever I want, which is nice. But yes, for a couple of years I was living with pretty greasy hair.Sophie Turner
Turner’s going places!
Along with the immensely popular character of Sansa, Sophie has also played Jean Gray in X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) and Vida in The Thirteenth Tale (2013) . She has also made appearances in Barely Lethal and Another Me. The actress seems to be growing leaps and bounds in her career as of now. She is also the face of Wella Professionals.
The biggest thing is WellaPlex. It’s a hair mask that you put on, leave in for 10 minutes, and then wash out. It repairs the bonds in your hair so that it doesn’t just feel strong and healthy, it actually is stronger and healthier afterward. I use it every week, because with the job I have, it’s a lot of dyeing, straightening, curling, and heat damage. I’ll put in on after showering, watch a bit of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and then I go back and wash it off.Sophie Turner to Glamour
Sophie’s life right now
In fact, Turner owes the replenishing and repairing of her hair condition to the good hair products she used. Currently, (thanks to the wig) Sophie sports, Icy Beige Blonde hair; a Koleston Perfect hair dye result. The dye is known to give lasting color and vibrancy.
The young actress is engaged to Camp Rock Disney star and pop-icon Joe Jonas. When asked about where she finds the most creative inspiration, Turner said that it would be New York. Meanwhile, let’s wait and watch out for the finale of GoT, everybody knows its going to be a good one!
