There has been outcry over the final few episodes of the HBO series, as it has failed to meet some fans’ expectations.

A petition entitled “Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers” created on Change.org by user Dylan D has received over 1.4million signatures.

But Sansa Stark actress Sophie has said it is “disrespectful” to those who worked on Game of Thrones for over a decade.

Speaking to the New York Times, Sophie said: ”All of these petitions and things like that - I think it’s disrespectful to the crew, and the writers, and the filmmakers who have worked tirelessly over 10 years, and for 11 months shooting the last season. Like 50-something night shoots.

Game of Thrones actor Sophie Turner

“So many people worked so, so hard on it, and for people to just rubbish it because it’s not what they want to see is just disrespectful.”

Other stars of the series have been quick to hit back at fan criticism.

Bran Stark actor Isaac Hempstead Wright has described the petition as “absurd”.

He told The Reporter: “It’s just absurd, I can’t even fathom it.

“It’s just ridiculous. It’s ridiculous that people think they can just demand a different ending because they don’t like it. I have stupidly taken it quite personally, which obviously I shouldn’t.”
