'Game Of Thrones' Sophie Turner Reveals How She Beat A Better Actress For A Job


Sophie Turner

Sophie Turner has revealed the uniquely ‘millennial’ way that she lands new acting roles – not because she was necessarily a better actress, but because she had a larger social media following!

The 21 year old English actress, who has been in the spotlight since her teenage years after landing the role of Sansa Stark in HBO’s fantasy series ‘Game of Thrones’, has built up a huge social media following - 1.34 million Twitter followers, 5.4 million on Instagram and 2 million on Facebook. This, she claims in a new interview with Porter magazine (reported via NME), is the primary reason she’s landing new roles, even ahead of those who are better actors than her!

“A lot of what I have achieved is about timing and luck, but it is also, and I hate to say it, about a big social media following,” Turner admitted.

Sophie Turner Teases Sansa Stark's 'Game Of Thrones' Future In Season 7


Sophie Turner

Finally making its return in just over a week, critically-acclaimed HBO fantasy series 'Game of Thrones' will be on everyone's lips for the next couple of months, as it undoubtedly delivers some action-packed episodes, full of twists and turns as the series nears its grand finale and eighth, conclusive season.

Sophie Turner has held the role of Sansa Stark for six full seasons to-dateSophie Turner has held the role of Sansa Stark for six full seasons to-date

For six seasons to-date, we've seen those working on the show deal out some meaty storylines, following the plot woven throughout the original but incomplete novel series 'A Song of Ice & Fire' by George R R Martin at times, but deviating from his plot on a number of occasions to serve the viewers who have read the books something fresh and unique. Now, all the scenes we'll see will be new ones, as the show has leapt ahead of where Martin's got up to with his book series, so there will be surprises with every episode.

Sophie Turner Denies Using Racial Slur In Viral Video


Sophie Turner

‘Game of Thrones’ star Sophie Turner has denied using a racial slur in an Instagram video that has gone viral, claiming that she was misheard.

The 21 year old English actress sparked a huge backlash on social media after many believed she used the ‘n-word’ in a clip shared by her boyfriend Joe Jonas that has since been deleted after it went up earlier this week. It showed fitness guru Brendan Fallis introducing the star and Jonas, before she allegedly used the offensive term (which is unintelligible in the video itself and up for debate) having said “what’s up”.

Thrones Recap: The One Where Things Are Still Horrible


Sophie Turner Kit Harington

Ok, I didn’t want to do this, but we have to. Let’s talk Game of Thrones. Particularly after last week’s awful, awful, bad thing that the writers put in unnecessarily, because why not have another rape scene disempowering  a central character, in a show that’s supposedly all about powerful women. Oh yeah, if you haven’t figured it out already, SPOILERS. All of the spoilers.

Game of Thrones cast
George R. R. Martin with the Game of Thrones cast in 2013. Let's play a game of "count the survivors".

So, a week  after we had to watch the gruesome, cringe-inducing scene between Ramsay and Sansa, we find lady Stark (soon to be Bolton) in even more dire straits, if that’s even possible. Weeks after she was promised to Ramsay – in an attempt by herself and Littlefinger to win back some power and avenge her family – we find Sansa locked in her room when Reek brings her food. Bruises cover her arms. She begs the man who was once Theon to help her, makes him promise to light a candle in the tower so that someone will come to save her.
