Sophie Turner can't "accept" that "Game of Thrones" is ending.

The 22-year-old actress has played the role of Sansa Stark since the HBO fantasy epic's launch in 2011, and she admitted she is almost in denial about next year's eighth season being its last.

She told "Entertainment Weekly": "I still don't accept that it's done. It's basically been the majority of my life. I'm still very much processing it."

Sophie has wrapped up filming her scenes for the show, and she revealed she was surrounded by many of her cast members during her last day on set.

Meanwhile, executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss also presented her with a gift - a storyboard of their favorite Sansa scene. She added: "They wrote a long note on the back. I bawled my eyes out. I was shaking and crying for hours."

Her comments come after co-star Peter Dinklage - who plays Tyrion Lannister on the show - revealed his alter ego has a "beautiful" ending.

He recently said: "There are no better writers in television than [showrunners] Dan Weiss and David Benioff. They ended it brilliantly. Better than I could have imagined and you people are in for it.

"It ends beautifully for my character whether it be tragic or not."

Peter previously admitted he had found it hard to say goodbye to the show because he had "developed deep roots" in many of the areas he shot the drama in because it was so far away from the home he shares with wife Erica Schmidt and their two children.

He added: "I had my last day on set in July, just over two months ago now and it was very sad.

"This is not only a great TV show to be a part of, but it was an enormous family to be a part of."
