‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Defends ‘Stranger Things’ Child Actor

Sophie Turner fired up on Twitter

Game Of Thrones star Sophie Turner has come to the defence of a 14-year-old Stranger Things actor in a fiery Twitter rant.

Turner hit back at criticism that Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike Wheeler on Stranger Things, recently did not stop to meet fans at his hotel.

The Game of Thrones actress, who first appeared on the show at 15, condemned the behaviour of “grown adults” abusing a child for snubbing them, TIME reports.

“Damn … seeing fully grown adults wait outside the ‘Stranger Things’ kids’ hotels etc, and then abuse them when they don’t stop for them … Is Super weird A. What adult in their right mind waits for a CHILD outside their hotel and B is then is offended when the CHILD doesn’t stop,” she Tweeted.

“It doesn’t matter if they are an actor…they are kids first. Give them the space they need in order to grow without feeling like they owe anyone anything for living their childhood dreams.”

Turner added: Oh and ps. Imagine.. you, a parent, walking with your 13 year old son/daughter and seeing a fully grown adult pointing their camera phone at your kid. You would do anything you could to delete that persons photograph, and remove your child from that situation as soon as you could.”
