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's Unconventional Sex Education On 'Game Of Thrones'


Sophie Turner

Sophie Turner was just 13-years-old when she started shooting 'Game of Thrones', and it turned out to be quite the educational experience for her. She has recently confessed that she was oblivious to the mechanics of half the sexual references within the script.

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”.

X-Men: Apocalypse Review

Very Good

This closing chapter of the First Class trilogy falls into the same trap as The Last Stand, the final part in the original X-Men trilogy: it shifts the focus from character detail and social commentary into a more standard effects-heavy action brawl. There's still a lot of strong character detail, and a big story that can't help but be entertaining. But it's impossible to escape the feeling that the film's scale is far bigger than it needed to be.

It's now 1983, and while Professor X (James McAvoy) works with Hank (Nicholas Hoult) to set up his school for young mutants, his old friend and nemesis Erik (Michael Fassbender) has started a family in a rural corner of Poland. But he can't hide forever. Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) is roaming the world helping mutants where she can, meeting the teleporting Kurt (Kodi Smit-McPhee) in Berlin before heading to Cairo. There, CIA operative Moira (Rose Byrne) has just uncovered a bizarre underground cult that has revived the ancient super-mutant Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), who immediately sets out on a quest to cleanse the planet and start over again. He needs four assistants, and the question is which of the X-Men will go over to the dark side.

This is the third comic book movie in a row about superheroes fighting each other, after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War. And it's similarly enormous (all three films are around two-and-a-half hours long), with mammoth battles that don't quite make logical sense but are compelling enough that the audience goes with them. This film has a bit more emotional depth, including back-stories that have been developed with unusual complexity. But some characters fall through the cracks.

X-Men Apocalypse - Teaser Trailer


Mutants and humans alike are familiar with the story of Apocalypse, he was the first mutant and began harnessing his power in ancient times. Now, millions of years after his reign, Apocalypse is reborn and finds himself in the middle of a modern society and shocked by the direction both human and mutant life has taken.

Feeling there are few options left, Apocalypse calls on the help of Magneto and a group of other mutants to help 'cleanse' the earth of all the citizens who have contributed to its downfall. The Horsemen of the Apocalypse - headed by Magneto - start to wreak havoc around the world and it looks like the X-Men's attempts to save it are all but lost - especially when their team is badly hurt by the loss of one member.

Brian Singer directs X-Men Apocalypse which reunites the lead cast from X-Men: Days of Future Past and sees the addition of Sophie Turner as Jean Grey and Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse.

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.

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.
