The grand premiere of Game of Thrones season 8 brought the entire cast of the show together, including the actors whose characters have already been killed on the show. Everyone including Jack Gleeson, who played King Joffrey and died of poisoning, to Natalie Dormer, who played Margaery Tyrell but was killed in the explosion at the Sept of Baelor, made it to the premiere.

Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on the show, attended the event with fiance Joe Jonas. While Sansa wore a black dress to the event, Joe complemented her in a grey and black suit. Joe later shared a candid picture of her bonding with Jack and captioned it, “WTF I thought this dude was dead... #KingJoffrey.” This got interested reactions from her friends and fans one of whom reacted, “Back from the dead like a White Walker....”

Joe had also shared a video of Sophie before entering the venue.

 

 

Sophie was also seen bonding with her onscreen sister Maisie Williams and the two shared a warm hug on the red carpet.
