Turns Out Sophie Turner Wanted The Same Game Of Thrones Ending As You

"There were so many ways the story could have turned out.”

Let’s be honest, we all envisioned a different ending to Game of Thrones, and it turns out Sophie Turner was hoping for something else as well.

In an interview with The Wrap, the actress, who’s nominated for an Emmy (in her category four out of six of the nominees are from GoT), revealed her dream ending and it’s probably very similar to yours.

“I thought Arya would kill Cersei,” she said. “And I would like to have seen Sansa and Cersei reunited, or Arya and Cersei. But there were so many ways the story could have turned out.”

Um, yeah, we all thought Arya would be the person to kill Cersei and the way she ended up dying was pretty underwhelming.

“I felt very passionately about the ending for Sansa, and I was very happy with the ending that turned out for her,” she added.

Sophie was also asked how she felt about Bran getting the Iron Throne when there are so many strong female characters and he’s “very passive”.

“I suppose it’s not really the Iron Throne anymore. I think it’s true what Tyrion was saying: Bran holds all of our stories, and we can’t move on unless we remember our history.

“Daenerys had to die. Cersei was a mad queen. Arya is too much of a free spirit. Sansa probably wouldn’t want to rule the seven kingdoms anyway — she wanted to stay in the North and defend the North. I really think Bran might be the perfect person for the job.”

She also went on to say how happy she was to have made it to the final episode and the final scene. The actress joked that every time she turned a page on the script she thought it would be her last scene.

When asked about the controversy surrounding the last season, however, the actress got defensive, which makes total sense when you think about the fact the cast and crew put almost a whole year of their lives into making those six episodes.

“The fans are incredible and so loyal, and we love them because of the fact that they’re so, so passionate. I cannot fault them there.

“But when people were saying that there was no effort, that the writers were terrible … The most effort was put into this final season. We were shooting for an incredibly long time, nearly 11 months. We did the most night shoots anyone has done ever, I think.

“I felt a little defensive, and I think I’m entitled to feel like that.”

While fans might not have loved the last season of the show the Emmys voters clearly did because GoT managed to get 32 nominations – the most nominations any series has had in a single year.

If you’d like to forget about the show’s ending, one fan has written their ideal season eight and it’s amazing. You can read it here.

Robert Pattinson Says He Smells Like A Crayon And I Need To Know Which Colour

Another wild yarn from R-Patz.

Robert Pattinson has gained quite a reputation for spinning wild yarns during interviews, but his most recent comments on his body odour have me truly shaken.

In a recent interview with Allure the star of the upcoming The Batman film said, “Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon.”

The interviewer – understandably bewildered by this statement – then asked, “Like you’re made of wax?”

To which R-Patz responded, “Yes! Like I’m embalmed.”

I have so many questions. What colour crayon does Pattinson smell like? What brand? Is he using lots of crayons? And most importantly, who are these multiple people who are telling him he smells like crayon!? Is that an insult, or a compliment?

It’s not the first time Robert Pattinson’s scent has come up in conversation. Back in 2009, E! News reported that an unidentified source who worked “very closely” with the actor on New Moon said “he stinks.”

“I mean, it’s awful,” the source said. “He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy.”

“He completely reeks,” an unidentified crew member added. Yikes.

It’s been over a decade since then, so we can only hope Robert Pattinson has swapped his lack of showering for an obsession with crayons. 

Speaking of celebrity scents, celebrity tattoo artist Lauren Winzer dishes on what Post Malone smells like on It’s Been A Big Day For…below:

During his interview with Allure, Pattinson was also asked about being recently named the “most handsome man” in the world according to science.

“It’s weird,” he said. “I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people.”

“My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get. And then in Twilight, [Edward is] beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. When I turned up for the auditions, I had done a job where I’d dyed my hair black, because I had an inch and a half of roots, and I had waxed my body. And then I had a few months where I’d been drinking beer all day, so I had this hairless, chubby body. I looked like a baby with a wig on.”

Hairless, chubby, waxed or smelling like a crayon – we’ll take Robert Pattinson any which way.
