Re-Write: Sansa Stark Saves Her Direwolf, Lady

by Rachel Baker on August 21, 2013

It’s not the first time that someone who died in HBO’s series Game Of Thrones came back to life, but this time it’s a happy ending. It turns out, in real life, Sophie Turner, the actress who plays Sansa Stark, adopted the Mahlek Northern Inuit dog who played her direwolf, Lady, in the series.

In between her hectic filming schedule, Sophie likes nothing more than to relax at home with her family and pet dog Zunni, who the family adopted from the series. She adds: “Growing up I always wanted a dog, but my parents never wanted one. We kind of fell in love with my character’s dire wolf, Lady, on set.

“We knew Lady died and they wanted to re home her. My mum persuaded them to let us adopt her.”
