The actress, who plays Sansa Stark on the show, hit the Emmys red carpet on Sunday (Sept. 18) where she revealed in an interview with E! News that she was floored by what showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have cooked up for season 7.
“I was actually speechless,” Turner told E! News according to the LA Times. “This season is unbelievable. I think fans are going to be really satisfied. It’s crazy.”
Turner isn’t the only Game of Thrones star singing the show’s praises. Her on-screen sister, Maisie Williams had a similar reaction after pouring through the scripts for the seventh season.
Williams took to Twitter to share her reaction with fans.
“Just finished reading season 7 [it] gets REAL,” tweeted the actress in August. “I’d start preparing yourselves now. Scratch that, nothing will prepare you for this!”
Both Turner and Williams’ reactions have us equal parts excited for what’s to come and scared for what it could mean for some of our favorite characters. Is it 2017 yet? We’re already missing having Game of Thrones in our lives!
Game of Thrones returns to HBO for season 7 in the summer of 2017.
