The actor, who is nominated for an Emmy in the Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category along with co-stars Maisie Williams, Gwendoline Christie and Lena Headey, also reflected upon the growth of Sansa from a starry-eyed teenager of nobility to the shrewd leader of Winterfell.

"The fact that she doesn't want power is also something to be said for her. She only cares about the North.
