6. Instagram Following
Sophie Turner has over 15 million followers on Instagram and she doesn’t take it for granted. Apparently, an Instagram account can help you out in showbiz. She revealed that she was auditioning for a project and while she thought the other actress was better than her, Sophie got the role because she had a bigger following.
7. Guilty Pleasure
Sophie is as mortal and all of us and her guilty pleasure is incredibly relatable. She just loves American fast food. When she works in America she treats herself with Chick-Fil-A, In-And-Out Burgers and her favorite drink is Wendy’s Frosty milkshake.
8. Hair Color
While you’re all used to seeing Sophie with red hair as Sansa Stark, her natural hair color is blond. And it’s a pretty blonde too, you’d struggle to dye your hair that perfect color. Sophie prefers her natural locks too, but you know, when you’re an actress you’re expected to dye your hair all the time.
9. Co-star Pet
You might remember that in the show most dogs meet a very sad end, but in real life, Sophie Turner adopted her co-star dog and it now happily lives with her family. Who else can brag about owning a dire wolf?
10. Freaky Phobia
Lots of people are scared of spiders, heights, the dark or the ocean. Some of us are even a bit scared of the new iPhone if you have a slight case of trypophobia. But Sophie is scared of walking over drains. What’s even weirder is how she manages it. Apparently, someone told her to say the word onion when she steps on one and it’ll help her be not scared, so now she does it all the time.
11. Exam Drama
Sophie got her role on the Game of Thrones when she was still a teenager in school and that meant that she had to keep doing homework on set and she even got a tutor to help her stay on point with her grades. What’s funny is that when it came to finals she got most As but she got a B in drama. It just proves that school is subjective, she was on GOT for god’s sake.
12. Tattoo Collection
She’s got 11 tattoos in total. Some are very small, like a letter or a tally mark. She has a bunny tattoo on the back of her arm and a minimalist portrait of a lady on her thigh. But she also has two GOT related tattoos. A Direwolf on her forearm with a quote “ the pack survives” and a flesh-colored tattoo of the date she found out she got the role in GOT. The last one is a matching tattoo with her best friend and co-star Maisie Williams.
