It was Andrew, who encouraged his teen daughter to play Lord Eddard Stark’s eldest child in the series. Sophia’s mother doubted, whether her sweet girl should have accepted the offer of Game of Thrones producers to portray Sansa because the series was full of violent sexual scenes, which were not appropriate for the teenager.
