Sophie Turner has played Sansa Stark in the series since she was very young.

She told the New York Times, 'The thing about Game of Thrones that's always been amazing is the fact that there's always been crazy twists and turns, right from season one with Ned's beheading.'

'So Daenerys becoming something of the Mad Queen – it shouldn't be such a negative thing for fans.'

'It's a shock for sure, but I think it's just because it hasn't gone their way.'

 'All of these petitions and things like that – I think it's disrespectful to the crew, and the writers, and the filmmakers who have worked tirelessly over 10 years, and for 11 months shooting the last season.'

'Like 50-something night shoots. So many people worked so, so hard on it, and for people to just rubbish it because it's not what they want to see is just disrespectful.'

"That's really good — I think it's really important when people take something into their heart and it means something to them."

"However, it doesn't. I just mean that in the sense that I was there and the crew, in particular, are like the hardest working people I've ever met."

He continues, "I think to trivialize their work in that way... I find it quite sad."

Isaac Hempstead Wright thinks the petition is 'absurd'

Wright plays Bran Stark in the series.

He told The Hollywood Reporter, 'It's just absurd.'

'I can't even fathom it. It's just ridiculous. It's ridiculous that people think they can just demand a different ending because they don't like it.'

'I have stupidly taken it quite personally, which obviously I shouldn't.'

'The fact that people are getting pi**ed off and having a big emotional response?'

'That's the reason why Game of Thrones is successful. It doesn't do what everyone wants them to do.'
