‘I did one-hour acting classes’: Sophie Turner reveals how little training she had before she was cast in Game Of Thrones… and says audiences will ‘walk away in shock’ after seeing X-Men: Dark Phoenix

She bowled over audiences with her performance on Game Of Thrones.

However, British actress Sophie Turner is still very much new to the acting game.

Talking to The Daily Telegraph on Friday, Sophie, 23, revealed she won the part of the lauded Sansa Stark after just doing a few one-hour acting classes.

‘I did one-hour acting classes on a Saturday before I was cast in Game Of Thrones,’ she revealed.

A drama school student, Sophie was just 14 years old when she landed the role that would change her life.

And she says that while her official acting education has been limited, she now realises she received the best coaching she could have ever got on the set of the HBO mega-series.

‘Going from Game Of Thrones to the X-Men [Dark Phoenix] was like graduating from one school to the other. GOT was the best acting class I could have asked for. 

‘It taught me everything I know,’ she said.

And those GOT acting classes would have come in handy for her new role in the next X-Men installment, Dark Phoenix, calling a ‘challenge’ the characters have never seen before.
