Sophie Turner has spent years as a blonde after being a redhead for her role as Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones. But the actress has gone back to being a ginger just as the summer kicks off, she revealed on her Instagram. Turner shared an Instagram mirror selfie of herself with her red locks, tagging Olivia Rodrigo because she was wearing Rodrigo’s Sour shirt merch. (The $30 crop top Turner had on is sold out, unsurprisingly.)
Turner likely dyed her hair for her new role in HBO Max’s true crime series The Staircase. Turner’s involvement in the project was announced just last week. She is set to play Margaret Ratliff, one of Michael Peterson’s (Colin Firth) adopted daughters, in a series about his North Carolina family and the “suspicious death of his wife, Kathleen (Toni Collette),” per Deadline.
Turner spoke to ELLE.com in 2018 about switching from blonde to red; she used to have to dye her hair red every week for Game of Thrones, she confirmed.
“Now I wear a wig, because I love my blonde too much. I started wearing a wig in season seven because I had dyed my hair blonde, and it wasn’t the best experience, so we couldn’t really dye my hair back red,” Turner said. “I started using [hairstylist and global ambassador for Wella Professionals] Sonya [Dove], and I started using WellaPlex, so then my hair was actually healthy enough to dye it back red for the new X-Men. Then, I just craved going back blonde, because Sonya did such a good job. So, I was just like Game of Thrones, you’re going to have to wig me!”
Turner compared the experience of being a redhead versus blonde, saying, “Red, it’s a gorgeous color but I’ve always want to style it one way: classic, waves. I feel so comfortable being blonde and much more like a ‘cool girl.’”
