Sophie Turner literally grew up on the set of Game of Thrones. Appearing on the series from the age of thirteen has its advantages for sure, but it also has its drawbacks. As Turner admits herself, its incredibly cool to appear on one of the world's biggest, and most successful, television series of all time. The downside is that you don't get to do normal teenage things, ie. go to college and get drunk with friends.
Appearing on the UK's Graham Norton Show, Turner opened up about what she feels she missed out on most while playing Sansa Stark.
"I wish I’d had the university experience," she says. "I wish I could have gone out and drunk a lot and thrown up in the middle of a club without it being photographed! But, I am happy with my Game of Thrones experience. I don’t think I missed out on too much."
Turner also gave an insight into life on the GoT set as a young teenager.
"They [the cast] were very protective," she said. "There was one moment before a scene where Peter [Dinklage] and Conleth [Hill] were talking amongst themselves and they were swearing, and Peter was like, 'Don’t swear in front of Sophie. She’s 14, you can’t swear'.
"Then they called, 'action' and the first words of the scene were a string of obscenities and expletives! It was all very strange."
While appearing on the same program, Turner showed off her incredibly wild flexibility thanks to years of circus training. The GoT star explained that she's able to fall asleep anywhere, regardless of her location. She told Norton, "I'm incredible at sleeping. I can do it anywhere, any time." Showing that she used to fall asleep by bending over, with her head between her legs, Turner explained, "I suppose I'm a little bendy."
