The Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner who plays Sansa Stark on the beloved HBO fantasy series has made a shocking revelation that she was banned from washing her hair while filming, saying “it was disgusting”.
The actress told InStyle magazine: “For the first few seasons I was allowed to wash my hair because I was an aristocratic young girl. “Towards season five they started asking me to not wash my hair and it was really disgusting.”
When asked if it ever got itchy the 22-year-old actress responded: “Really itchy! Also, we would have the snow machines going so we would have little snow paper particles that would get stuck in the grease. It was disgusting,” she said.
However, Turned said she was eventually allowed to wear wigs, which meant she could wash her hair whenever she wanted.
“Now I wear a wig so I can wash my hair whenever I want, which is nice. But yes, for a couple of years I was living with pretty greasy hair”, she said.
Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark and Kit Harrington as Jon Snow in Game of Trhones Turner will star in the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones which will be broadcast on Sky Atlantic in Ireland on April 15 at 2am.
The air date was announced with a chilling teaser trailer which showed Jon Snow, Sansa and Arya Stark in the crypts of Winterfell. It is learned that the final season will feature six episodes.
