Also talks about season 5.
Sophie Turner was just 14 years old when she was cast in HBO’s mega-franchise Game Of Thrones as the spectacularly braided, flame-haired Sansa Stark (cool fact: in real life, she’s actually blonde). Despite a pretty unusual adolescence juggling the demands of international fame, the 18-year-old we meet at InStyle’s shoot is an endearingly normal and softly spoken sort, thrilled that she’s getting to try on our rail of eccentric granny-chic-themed Miu Miu, Mary Katrantzou and Peter Pilotto. ‘I would wear all of this in real life – if I was brave enough,’ she laughs.
Warwickshire-raised Sophie – who says her acting talents stem from an am-dram-loving grandpa – has survived all the shock character kill-offs that have become a Game Of Thrones trademark and will return next month in season five of the show. There are some other exciting new projects coming, too, including a part in action-comedy Barely Lethal with Hailee Steinfeld and Samuel L Jackson and a starring role in a new Mary Shelley biopic. Does this mean she’s going to be hanging up her Thrones cloak soon? We know, she’d have to kill us…
So, we’ve gone pretty wild with the fashion today… ‘I kind of love it. It’s like I’m a collector of curiosities and I’ve stashed tonnes of it in this quirky, crazy little house. It’s very different to any other shoots I’ve done.’
Anything you’ve spotted on the rail that you love? ‘The military-style vintage jacket. I think ?I could get away with that. I probably wouldn’t wear the incredible Miu Miu heels though, as I’m clumsy enough in flats.’
Have you had any good advice from other actors? ‘Just before my 16th birthday, Natalie Dormer said to me, “As soon as you turn 16, you’re going to work adult hours, people will try to take advantage of you, so it’s important not to be a pushover.” Now I’m a total pushover and I let people work me too hard so, in hindsight, that was probably some very good advice!’

Tori and I would just like to wish Sophie a very happy 19th birthday! Sansa means so much to a lot of people, and we could never have asked for a more talented actress to portray her. I am so excited to see what Sophie will bring to Jean Grey! It is such a privilege to help run this website and to watch Sophie grow up and come into more success, as I’m sure she will continue to do.
Please send her some birthday wishes on twitter! @sophieT

That’s the weirdest headline I’ve written for this website…
