Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner is sporting a new look for GOT Season 7! The actress responsible for the terrific representation of Sansa Stark has a completely different hairstyle, and some fans are wondering why. If you thought Turner was a natural redhead, you’re in for a surprise. She’s been using dye and rocking red hair for her role as Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones. Now that we know she is actually blonde, some are wondering why she suddenly decided to wear a red wig as opposed to dying it.
The photos released by @PAP4U show the actress with her fellow GOT co-stars wearing the wig in some photos, and letting her blonde hair free in others.

Turner’s Future Roles
Turner’s hairstyle has made fans wonder why she suddenly decided to opt for the red wig. Does she have another role to prepare for? According to the IMDb, Turner has some other roles coming up soon: Alone (2016) and Huntsville (2017). Whether that’s the reason for the wig choice or not, Turner looks great no matter what hair color she chooses.
The celebrity dyed her hair platinum blonde two months ago and debuted the look on her Instagram. Fans absolutely loved the new look just as much as they loved the phoenix red. Her decision to wear a red wig is a smart move for the young star. Using her less dramatic natural hair might open up some new career opportunities for her. With her talent as Sansa Stark in GOT and her incredible, mind-blowing performance as Jean Gray in X-Men: Apocalypse, there’s no limit to how far this versatile actress can go.
Game of Thrones filming is well underway, and fans will be keeping an eye out for insight into what is going on in the lives of their favorite cast members. Sophie Turner beautifully transformed into the graceful yet fierce Lady of Winterfell, and we are positive that the rest of the cast will blow us away!
