I’m in my second year at university and I am currently conducting a piece of research about fan character preference and identity. I decided to focus on Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire because I love her and I decided it would be great to research why other people love her too. This research is aimed at fans whose favourite character is Sansa. The research will be about Sansa within the context of what has aired on the show, so you can participate even if you haven’t read the series.
I am holding an online (focus group/group interview) discussion about Sansa next week. It should be an in-depth discussion about Sansa, about what draws Sansa fans to her and which moments and traits you feel define her, the reasons why she is your favourite character, etc.
Please let me know if you would like to participate. If Sansa is your favourite character, this is essentially the opportunity to discuss her with a bunch of other fans who are just as enthusiastic!
I am holding the discussion today (Monday November 25th) at 7pm UK time on Skype. I am only using Skype for the group instant message function and I will not be using the video or audio function. The group discussion could take between 30 and 60 minutes, although it depends on how much everyone wants to discuss her. There is no time limit!
Please leave me a message with your Skype username if you’d like to participate! Or you can message me or tweet me @brioneh for more information. My Skype username is briony.hannell
Titanic (film) trivia: After filming various takes of the scene when Rose runs back to Jack after jumping out of the lifeboat, Leonardo DiCaprio asked James Cameron if they could have one more take “for the actors.” Kate Winslet says: "That was rather daunting, because I had no idea what Leo was going to do." The actors ran toward each other and when Leo got a hold of her, he lifted Kate up in the air and let all of his emotions out. That is the take that made it into the film’s final cut.
