Sophie Turner sends Game of Thrones viewers wild with tattoo

She plays the role of Sansa Stark in HBO’s beloved fantasy drama Game Of Thrones.

And Sophie Turner has showcased her devotion for the daredevil character with a new arm tattoo earlier this week, which features an intricate drawing of a dire wolf and the words ‘the pack survives’.

The 22-year-old actress’ fresh inking – which was posted to tattoo artist Lauren Winzer’s Instagram account – has left fans convinced that the star is hinting at what is to come in the eighth and final series of the show.

Paying homage to Sansa’s late father Ned Stark, the memorable phrase ‘the lone wolf dies but the pack survives’ was coined by the head of House Stark in the first series.

The Barely Lethal star’s detailed tattoo caused speculation amongst keen viewers, who believed the piece represented her family’s longevity as well as their successful fate for the new series – set to premiere in 2019. 

Clearly in shock, fans flocked to the image, with one penning: ‘omg is this a spoiler?’, while another wrote: ‘That’s a spoiler I think, it’s mean all the rest of the Starks will survive.’

However, other viewers weren’t as convinced, as a fan noted the inking was merely a reference to the previous series: ‘Just bec a tattoo said “ the pack survives” doesn’t mean it’s a spoiler and the starks survived. The phrase came from her monologue back in S7 ! Why aren’t people thinking about that? (sic)’

In agreeance, another completely dismissed the claims: ‘Spoiler, I think not. Wishfull thinking.’ 

On season seven’s finale, viewers were left on knife’s edge after the Night King finally made his move to wipe out the people of Westeros and Jon Snow’s parentage was finally confirmed. 

Meanwhile, Sophie has happily settled into life in Bondi with her fiancé Joe Jonas, 28, where they are renting a house while Joe films The Voice Australia.

They have been inseparable as a couple since they announced their engagement in October last year.

Despite keeping their wedding plans under wraps, it has previously been reported they won’t tie the knot until Sophie finishing filming Game Of Thrones season eight.

Joe told TV WEEK magazine that he and Sophie are yet to plan their wedding, although it is a priority.

He added: ‘We knew it would get out if she was walking around with the ring on her finger so we tried to be timely about it, but the emotions took over.’
