Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin’s series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones. The episodes are mainly written by Benioff and Weiss, who are the executive producers alongside Martin, who writes one episode per season. Filmed in a Belfast studio and on location elsewhere in Northern Ireland, Malta, Scotland, Croatia, Iceland, the United States and Morocco, it premiered on HBO in the United States on April 17, 2011. Two days after the fourth season premiered in April 2014, HBO renewed Game of Thrones for a fifth and sixth season. The series, set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos at the end of a decade-long summer, interweaves several plot lines. The first follows the members of several noble houses in a civil war for the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms; the second covers the rising threat of the impending winter and the mythical creatures of the North; the third chronicles the attempts of the exiled last scion of the realm’s deposed dynasty to reclaim the throne. Through its morally ambiguous characters, the series explores issues of social hierarchy, religion, loyalty, corruption, civil war, crime, and punishment. Game of Thrones has attracted record numbers of viewers on HBO and obtained an exceptionally broad and active international fan base. It received widespread acclaim by critics, although its frequent use of nudity, violence and sexual violence has attracted criticism. The series has won numerous awards and nominations, including a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Drama Series for its first four seasons, a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Television Series – Drama, a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation in both Long Form and Short Form, and a Peabody Award. Among the ensemble cast, Peter Dinklage won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series and the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries or Television Film for his role as Tyrion Lannister.

Sansa Stark is a fictional character created by American author George R. R. Martin. She is a prominent character in Martin’s award-winning A Song of Ice and Fire series. In HBO’s adaptation of the series, Game of Thrones, Sansa Stark is played by Sophie Turner. Sansa Stark is the second child of Eddard Stark and Catelyn Stark. She was born and raised in Winterfell, until leaving with her father and sister at the beginning of the series. She has a younger sister Arya Stark, two younger brothers Rickon Stark and Brandon Stark, as well as an older brother Robb Stark and an older illegitimate half-brother, Jon Snow. Raised as a lady, Sansa is appeared to be traditionally feminine. Sansa has interest in music, poetry, singing and other feminine activities. She strives to become the tale of a romantic adventure by attempting to find princes, knights or chivalry for love. Sansa pities her younger sister Arya who dissimilar from herself due to her strong passion in sword fighting. In her companionship she owns a dire wolf named Lady. Sansa has been described as a tall, slim, and beautiful, destined to be a princess or a queen. She has blue eyes and thick red hair. Sansa is 11 years old in A Game of Thrones and nearly 14 in A Feast for Crows. The writers of the HBO show Game of Thrones have hewed very closely to the characters arc from the novels, with some differences. In the first book, Sansa runs off to inform Cercei Lannister that Lord Stark plans to have his family and household flee the capitol. Armed with this information, Cercei is able to deduce that Lord Stark planned to expose Joffrey as an illegitimate heir to the throne the next morning. Thus Sansa unknowingly gave Cercei just enough warning for her to out-maneuver Lord Stark, thus paving the way for his execution. In the show, this conversation never takes place because doing so would risk Sansa forfeiting her audience sympathy. Furthermore, in the books, Sansa was never betrothed to Loras Tyrell, but rather to his brother Wilas. The books only mention Wilas in passing, and he is never depicted in the novels; the show combines his character with Loras. In addition, Martin does not make Lord Baelish’s affection for Sansa clear until the two reach the Eyrie. In the books, while in King’s Landing, he communicates with her almost exclusively through intermediaries and unwilling accomplices. Lastly, Sansa never lies to the Lords of the Eyrie about the circumstances of Lysa Tully’s untimely demise at the hands of Lord Baelish as she does in the show. Most importantly, she never exposes her identity as Sansa Stark to the collected lords and ladys, remaining under the alias of Alyne Stone and continuing to pose as Lord Baelish’s bastard daughter.
