Personal Quotes (4)

You've got to be able to wear your clothes, don't let the clothes wear you.
Getting Game of Thrones was amazing. I was 13, on holiday in France, and my mum woke me up saying, "Morning Sansa!" I burst out crying and jumped in the pool.
I think because I'm so close with Sansa I feel that she is like my first love, in a way.
[on comparing herself to her character in Game of Thrones] Well, I've been told by other cast members that I'm a lot like her. Maybe when I first joined the show. I was only 13, I was one of those girls that read OK! 12 times a week, and I was all "Ooh, Justin Bieber" - who is the Joffrey Baratheon of our time.
