Did you know Sophie Turner didn’t wash her hair while filming for Game Of Thrones

Method actors with demanding roles often go to great lengths to portray iconic characters. While Heath Ledger isolated himself to perfect the maniacal, sociopath Joker in The Dark Knight, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner too went to extremes. She recently shared a particularly intriguing tidbit about filming the hit HBO fantasy series.

She said she was asked to not wash her hair in order to maintain her look for the show. The 22-year-old actor, who plays Sansa Stark said from season five onwards she was forced to live with “really disgusting” hair!
“For the first few seasons, I was allowed to wash my hair because I was an aristocratic young girl. Towards season five, they started asking me to not wash my hair and it was really disgusting,” Sophie told InStyle magazine.

“(In the final season) I wear a wig, so I can wash my hair whenever I want, which is nice. But yes, for a couple of years I was living with pretty greasy hair,” Sophie shares.

Here’s how the actor described the experience!
“(It was) really itchy! Also, we would have the snow machines going so we would have little snow paper particles that would get stuck in the grease. It was disgusting,” Turner said.

In fact, Sophie believes that just like Sansa, her hair also had its own journey on the show!

“The first few episodes she was a Northerner in Winterfell and took after her mother with a simple braid down the back.

“Then when she went to King’s Landing it was a big, decadent halo that was very much like what (Cersei Lannister) wore.”

With Littlefinger, she dyes her hair black and wears all black. Then she goes back to Winterfell and returns to her mother’s hair. “She created her own identity in season seven and that kind of runs through to season eight. She’s chosen how she wants her hair to be, and she’s finally the leader and influencer instead of being influenced by everyone else,” Turner said of her character Sansa according to Indian Express.

Interestingly, Sophie believes that out of all her co-stars, Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, has the best hair!

“He (Kit) probably takes the most care of his hair out of like everyone on the show I know. He’s obsessed.

“Before red carpets, you would always see him scrunching the ends of his curls to make sure they’re perfect. We all take the piss out on him for that,” she grins. Well, now you know the secret to Jon Snow’s Cherub-like curls!

Fortuitously, our long wait is almost over. HBO revealed the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones shall premiere on April 14!
