'Game of Thrones' season 8: Sansa's challenge without Littlefinger

'I'm really excited, ' Sophie said.

Sophie Turner has confirmed Game Of Thrones won't return until 2019, while also teasing Sansa's future in Westeros.

She also talked about her upcoming projects, including X-Men: Dark Phoenix, in which she will reprise her role of Jean Grey.

Her quote follows news that GoT - which is now shooting its final six episodes - will continue filming until the summer of 2018 (which also suggested that the show wouldn't be back until the following year given the amount of post-production work required for each season).

In an interview with Variety, Turner admitted that it was going to be "tricky" for her character.

The final season of Game of Thrones will feature six near feature length episodes with budgets of upwards of $15 million per piece. And without Littlefinger (Petyr Baelish, played by actor Aidan Gillen), it's a test for her of whether she can get through it.

As was expected, Game of Thrones wont return to the airwaves for its eighth and final season until 2019. Then I have some independent movies to be released.

While fans are still finding it hard to come to terms with the fact that season eight will be the last for GoT, the cast too are still coming to grips with it. On the question of whether the problem she will face will be the White Walkers or a political fight; the actress asked the fans to wait and watch.

Hence, according to what Turner said, Game of Thrones Season 8 is likely to return in the summer of 2019. The actress described the atmosphere on the set as being very emotional, with the cast members staying in town a bit longer and going out for meals more often together.

Game of Thrones Season 7 will be available on Blu-ray and DVD starting December 12th. "I think that this last season will take much longer to shoot because they can only use one unit because we're all in the same sort of scenes".
