For us, she’ll always be Sansa from Game Of Thrones, but Sophie Turner has to move on. And after her role in Dark Phoenix, she sets her sights on a return to television.
Indeed, she announced she has signed on to star in the new Quibi streaming service thriller series titled Survive.
Adapted from a novel of the same name by Alex Morel, the show is being written by Richard Abate and Jeremy Unbar, with Park Wellington directing. She’ll play alongside Coray Hawkins from 24: Legacy.
The series will follow “Jane (Turner) whose plane crashes on a remote snow-covered mountain and she, along with Paul (Hawkins), the only remaining survivor must pull themselves out of the wreckage and fight for their lives. Together they embark on a harrowing journey out of the wilderness, battling brutal conditions and personal traumas”.
This thrilling series will be exclusively dropped by stream service Quibi, and it has the particularity to offer only 7-10 minutes long episodes. We will have to wait and see how the writing has been adapted to fit this very short format.
To conclude, Turner gave us some information about her character : “She’s a complex character fighting against the odds to not only save her life but to also find her own source of strength and courage. I only hope this can impact anyone struggling with self-worth to understand they are braver than they know and to seek the support they need.”
We don’t know when the series is set to broadcast, but we know that Quibi is set to launch on April 6, 2020.
