Benioff particularly praised Sophie Turner’s performance in the scene where Sansa Stark witnesses Ramsay’s death, calling it an “epic” moment.

“What you do see is Sophie [Turner]’s smile. It was all in one shot, and we did it seven times or something… She nailed it on the seventh or eighth time, and it was just that feeling of — that’s so epic. Sophie was so good. When she got that shot, I felt like I can now die happy,” Benioff shared.
