Sophie Turner Reflects Back on Filming 'Game of Thrones'

The Cut

Sophie Turner is opening up about her time on "Game of Thrones."

In a recent interview with Jessica Chastain for the Cut, the soon-to-be mother of two reflected on her time filming the massively successful HBO series.

She shared,

"For ten years, I felt like I needed to be the person that everyone else saw because I was growing up and I didn't know anything else. Other than the character that I was playing in 'Game of Thrones' and then other people's perceptions of me, I didn't have time to figure out who I was as a person."

Turner played the role of 'Sansa Stark.' She was just 15 years old when the series premiered. It aired on HBO for eight seasons.

"The subject matter was so heavy that I just developed a coping mechanism of just having the most fun in between takes, so I wouldn't get traumatised," she said, reflecting back. "I'm sure I'll exhibit some symptoms of trauma down the road. At that age, I don't think I could comprehend a lot of the scene matter."

Now, the actress is moving forward, "evolving" into the person she says she "probably should have evolved into about ten years ago."

"When 'Game of Thrones' ended, I started developing, like, a personal life and then finally a taste for what I actually wanted to do in my work and things like that," she said.
