‘Game of Thrones’ Direwolf Lives With Actress Who Plays Sansa Stark

Sophie turner adopted direwolf In your daily “awww,” the dog actress (is there still not a less informal word for that?) who played Lady on Game of Thrones was adopted in real life by Sophie Turner, aka the actress who plays Sansa Stark.

“Growing up I always wanted a dog, but my parents never wanted one,” Turner told The Coventry Telegraph of the gorgeous Mahlek Northern Inuit Dog she was introduced to three years ago. “We kind of fell in love with my character’s dire wolf, Lady, on set. We knew Lady died and they wanted to re-home her.”

I wish I had enough space to “re-home” all the animals I’ve mourned in film and TV, but I only mean that if Mufasa counts. And the octopus from Oldboy.
