Sophie Turner

Sophie Turner was born in Northampton in England and grew up in Warwick. She attended Kings High School there and was a member of a local theatre group from a young age. Her breakthrough role was as Sansa Stark in the HBO hit series Game of Thrones. In her first role in front of a camera, Turner plays Sansa Stark, the eldest daughter of House Stark in the 2011 HBO fantasy TV series Game of Thrones. Her drama teacher encouraged her to audition for the part. She dyes her blonde hair red for the role. Turner will play the main role in the indie thriller film Panda Eyes based on the novel Another Me by Catherine MacPhail, acting alongside Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Claire Forlani, Rhys Ifans andGeraldine Chaplin. The film began shooting in November 2012 in the United Kingdom as well as in Barcelona, Spain. Panda Eyes will make its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2013. Turner is a friend of actress Maisie Williams, who plays her character's sister Arya Stark in the series. They met during their auditions, with Williams discovering she got the part two weeks after Turner. After season one production ended on Game of Thrones, the Turner family adopted Zunni, the dog that played Sansa Stark's direwolf, Lady, in the show.
