Sophie Turner: 'Game Of Thrones' Season 3 Is A 'Roller Coaster' For Sansa

Sophie Turner revealed there's some turbulent times ahead for Sansa Stark in "Game of Thrones" Season 3.

"I can tell you that Sansa kind of goes through this little roller coaster on Season 3 emotionally, she kind of gets her hopes up a little at times and they kind of get crushed -- as per (usual) pretty much, nothing much different," Turner told the Associated Press. "It's very emotionally testing for Sansa this season."

Season 3 of "Game of Thrones" is based on George R. R. Martin's "A Storm of Swords" novel, the third book in the series. Look for Sansa and Tyrion Lannister to share screentime this season. "Peter's such a cool guy, he's amazing to act alongside with and I think I've been really lucky in terms of having worked with Sean Bean closely -- him being my dad, (Ned Stark) -- and now Peter, I'm very lucky getting to work in scenes with these guys because they're big successful actors," Turner said.

Season 3 will see the addition of many new faces, including Clive Russell as Bryndon "The Blackfish" Tully, Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Jojen Reed, and Diane Rigg as Lady Olenna Tyrell, "The Queen of Thorns." And with new faces comes new drama. A recent preview for "Game of Thrones" promised chaos for the beloved characters.
