GoT’s Sophie Turner Just Dyed Her Hair Platinum Blond
We’re in so much shock, we’ll just get right to it. Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones, just dyed her hair a snow-white shade of blond. Yes, she pulled a Daenerys! Her new look is strikingly similar to the wigs Emilia Clarke’s character wears in the show, meaning she could easily be mistaken for a member of house Targaryen now.
Turner revealed the new hairstyle on Instagram earlier today. In the half-selfie, her hair is splayed out on the floor behind her, giving off an angelic, halo appearance—it’s weirdly reminiscent of the innocent Sansa we knew in the pre-Joffrey/Ramsay days. “I did a thing,” Sophie nonchalantly captioned the post.

Sophie’s thick, Rapunzel-length red hair is like Cindy Crawford’s birth mark or Taylor Swift’s red lipstick—it’s been her signature since she rose to the top of our girl crush list. Could she be prepping for a new movie? Just having a summer fling with platinum? The conspiracy theorist in us wants to say this is a clue that a House Stark/Targaryen alliance is coming. But we’re just reading too much into this, right? Right?! We guess time will tell.
Even more surprising, it appears that Sophie has been secretly lightening up her hair the past few weeks without any of us even noticing. Check out her lighter, strawberry blond hair debuted at Comic-Con last week:
And here’s the new color from the back:
It’s anyone’s guess as to whether her platinum will make it into Game of Thrones season seven. But considering Maisie Williams, who plays Sansa’s younger sister Arya, also just went full-on mermaid teal recently, we’re guessing they’re just having some fun until the
real fun battle against the Wights begins.
