Unless you have been living under a rock for the past five years you know about Game of Thrones, and if you know about Game of Thrones then you know about Sophie Turner. Sophie plays Sansa Stark, who has long been one of the more interesting characters on the show.
At the beginning of the show, you absolutely hate her. Her being such an idiot early on was a part of the reason the Starks got into this huge mess in the first place. Then, you feel really bad for her. First she is tortured by King Joffrey, then manipulated by Little Finger, and then she is really tortured by Ramsey Bolton. Now, after getting her revenge on Ramsey, she is sitting next to Jon Snow at the head of the table and running things once again.
She truly has come a long way, and so has Game of Thrones. The show remains one of the most popular on television now, and has an absolutely rabid fan base, and why not? Honestly, the show really is pretty fantastic. Something else that is pretty fantastic is Sophie Turner. She not only has grown into her role, but she has also grown as an actress and as a woman. She has gone from a bit of a gawky teenager into a lovely lady in the truest sense.
For those of you who are fans of Sophie, and also of her looks, then you are in luck as we have gathered some of the best photos of her around. Here are the 15 hottest photos of Sophie Turner. You’re welcome.
15. Prim And Proper
Sophie is truly quite lovely, and despite also being a bit of a hottie, always has a touch of class. This seems to be something about her being English, as she truly has the vibe on screen that she could be a noble woman- she just seems so very proper. In real life she is not quite so proper, however. She once said “some days I want to look like a hipster kid, and then other days I want to be prim and proper. I really wish I had, like, seven lives so I could go from being a hipster one day to a punk the next. But that’s the great thing about fashion. In a way, it’s like acting, because you can try on all these different roles.” Well Sophie, I must say I simply can’t imagine you being a hipster. Sorry to disappoint you.
14. Classy Turner
Here, Sophie looks gorgeous and classy as always. She sure can pull off that dress better than most young women could. She was born in a small town in England in 1996, but she did not wait very long before she started acting. She was in a theatre company called the Playbox Theatre Company by the age of 3. She once said in a local newspaper interview that “that was how my obsession grew. I am still in Playbox. My first lead was in a production called Scary Play directed by Stewart McGill, who is amazing. Playbox is a fun environment. It’s not just a place for kids to hang around and be silly. We are all very serious about acting. They do not mould you into the actor they want, but let you be yourself.” We like that they let Sophie be herself, of course, because we like Sophie and really, who wouldn’t? She truly is gorgeous.
13. Smell The Roses
Here is another photo where it is easy to see just how lovely Sophie is. It seems like sometimes her looks are even a bit overshadowed on Game of Thrones. There are just so many hot women on the show that sometimes she gets a bit lost in the shuffle. This is wrong. So wrong, actually. On any other show Sophie would be the hottest one, but here they are all so hot. Perhaps that it is because her character was so sad in the past. It does seem that the more powerful and comfortable with herself she becomes, the more Sansa gets hotter. She had this to say about playing a sad character. “You’ve got to be happy when you play a sad character; otherwise, you just get depressed. Make your real life as fun as possible.” Very well, said; that is good advice Sophie.
12. Ginger Love
This may come as a surprise to many of you, but Game of Thrones was actually Sophie’s first role. How does that happen? You are chilling out, acting in some children’s theater in England when all of a sudden you get one of the biggest roles not only of your career, but that anyone could imagine. In an interview she said: “Playbox put me up for a lot of auditions, but it was through my drama teacher at school I heard about the Game of Thrones audition. The casting director knew about the drama department at our school. I had four more call backs in London. It was really intense, but fun. I did a lot of chemistry tests with other people; the last one was with Maisie (Williams) who plays Arya. She is lovely.” It is kind of funny she did a chemistry test with an actress she has not appeared alongside for several seasons.
11. Stunning In Black
Although she is well known for her red locks, she is actually a natural blonde. This is obviously kind of different, as most women die their hair to be blonde, not the other way around. According to one source, she once said “I am planning to go back to being a blonde soon, then I’ll slip back in with everyone else. My friends hate it when I get recognized.” And apparently she gets recognized a lot. She once told Vanity Fair: “Yes, people come up to me in London. It’s weird, since it’s bigger over here, you’d expect more people to come up to me, but actually in London, I get more people. I think over here people are so used to seeing someone off the TV or movies that they just don’t really care. But in London it’s kind of rare.”
10. On The Red Carpet
Here is another stunning photo of Sophie. Sadly fans of Game of Thrones do not have too much longer to watch her as Sansa. The word on the street is that there will just be two more seasons of the incredibly popular show, and not only that but each season may be shorter than normal. We fans of the show have been used to ten episodes a season, and even that didn’t seem like a whole lot. But now we know that there are only two seasons left, and each season might just be 6 or 7 episodes long. Game of Thrones has been on for so long now that it will be a sad day when it finally goes off the air. It might be sad for Sophie as well, but we imagine she has been saving her pennies, and will be happy for a bit of a break. For a while anyway…
9. The Pensive Look
One thing that you may notice about all of these gorgeous photos of Sophie is that she does not show a ton of skin. While of course that may be a bit irritating to some of you, as you want to see a bit more of her, the reality of the situation is that her class really enhances her look. I am sure that it is refreshing for a lot of women out there to have a role model that is not all about showing off her body to be famous. Sophie is a bit of a throwback. In an age where a lot of people are all about the trashiness of the Kardashians, Sophie adds a touch of class to the whole proceedings. Which is probably why she was picked to play the role in the first place. Maybe it is just me, but I don’t think the Kardashians could pull off royalty.
8. Having Fun
Here is another lovely photo of Sophie, looking amazing as she always does. Some of you may not know that she appeared in a video for Bastille, which is a band out of England. The song is called “Oblivion” and Sophie lip syncs the song at a Demolition Derby arena during the video. Sophie has said that she needs music around her all the time and that she even sleeps with music. This could be the only deal breaker when it comes to Sophie. Everything else about her seems so perfect; but this? Well… most of us have hung out with a woman who does this before. They always say things like: “This won’t keep you up, will it?” and of course you say it won’t, purely because you want to hang out and spend the night, but really, it will.
7. She Pull Off Braids
Sophie is cool, there is no doubt about that. How do I know this? What proof do I have? Well, she is gorgeous, she seems smart, she is a successful actress, and all of that, but that is not what actually makes her cool. What makes her really cool is that she adopted a Direwolf. One of the Direwolves was not being used anymore, as they were replaced by CGI animation, because of their increased size. The dog playing the Direwolf was not only out of a job, but needed a home as well. Sophie and her family adopted the dog, who is now an accepted and loved member of their family. I mean come on, how cool is that? Can you imagine dating a chick that is on Game of Thrones that also adopted one of the Direwolves? The cool ratio is off the charts on that one.
6. On The Set Of X-Men
When she was married on the show to Peter Dinklage, it was not the easiest day of filming. Not because it was Peter Dinklage, of course. That guy is totally cool. In fact, the only thing that would make him cooler is if he had adopted a Direwolf. Apparently the walking down the aisle took a whole day to shoot. It took a whole ten hours just for her to get it down. She had this to say about it: “I think it was just that we had so many shots and I kept tripping up in that dress. I can’t even tell you how many times I tripped up the stairs. It was so embarrassing. I wear heels with all my costumes as well, and this dress was super long, super heavy. I kept falling.” We will forgive you Sophie, just because we like you so darn much.
5. A Little Cleav
A lot of people know how much Sansa and Joffrey hate each other on the show, but not many people know that Sophie and the actor that played Joffrey would engage in epic rap battles on the set. In an interview with Vulture, she said: “We rap a lot on set. It’s really bad rapping, obviously, but we try our best. It’s our own raps, too. I should say he’s the one that does all the rapping, I just give him the beat. It’s more of my attempt at beat boxing. I just feel so sorry for the crew who have headphones on because they’re all ready to listen to us doing our scenes and then for fifteen minutes all they can hear is Jack and I giving it our all. Jack was rapping about Winnie the Pooh and all the money he has- ‘Monies and Honeys.’ Someone should have recorded it for the DVD extras.”
4. All Glammed Up
If you want to know what kind of a good girl Sophie is, this is one of the most risque photos that I found… If you were starring in a show that was set in the same time period as Game of Thrones, what would one of the worst possible things to be allergic to be? Besides blood of course- there is blood everywhere on that show. Give up yet? Well, the answer would be horses, which is exactly what Sophie is allergic to. She once said: “I’m asthmatic anyway, and just swell up when I am near horses, so I have to have an inhaler in my pocket all the time. Most of the time I am just desperately trying to breath!” It is a good thing that Sophie looks so fabulous, as I am sure she can get away with being a bit swelled up from time to time.
3. Ginger Curls
Here is another ridiculously gorgeous photo of Sophie. Although she is most obviously a good girl with a strong head on her shoulders, she also has a bit of a dark side. A lot of viewers were very upset when Ramsey raped Sansa on the show, but Sophie stuck up for the scene and actually said she thought filming it was kind of cool. She had this to say about the scene to Entertainment Weekly: “When I read that scene, I kinda loved it. I love the way Ramsay had Theon watching. It was all so messed up. It’s also so daunting for me to do it. I’ve been making (them) feel so bad for writing that scene: ‘I cant believe you’re doing this to me!’ But I secretly loved it.” Sophie knows how to keep us guessing, as one would never think she would have ever said that.
2. Orange Looks Good In X-Men Blue
Okay, so just for fun, let’s just pretend you are a nerd. We know you are not, of course, this is just a bit of a game. But if you are a nerd, what could possibly be hotter than a woman being in both Game of Thrones and X-Men: Apocalypse? Pretty much nothing. She has also appeared in Another Me, The Thirteenth Tale, and Barely Lethal. She is also set for lead roles in Alone and Mary Shelley’s Monster. It does seem that Sophie’s career will continue on after Game of Thrones. A lot of actors and actresses that start in their teens simply fade away when they reach adulthood, but we get the feeling that Sophie will have a very long career; she can act and she is only getting hotter as time goes on, so why not? We don’t see any reason why not at all.
1. Plain White T
If there is one thing that Sophie has, it is simple elegance. The same thing can be said for Game of Thrones, of course, and the whole time period that it takes place in. Back then there was something special about being a lady, and even now, in the year 2016, Sophie has that whole thing down pat. Most lists of “hottest photos” will show you a lot of bare skin, and a lot of sexy poses. But the same type of list featuring Sophie shows you many photos of an incredibly beautiful woman, who is comfortable being herself, and not trying to be a sex symbol. Ironically, that is exactly what makes her so hot. A beautiful woman who is modest, and comfortable in her own skin is a rare thing these days. I am sure these qualities are why she was picked to be Sansa in the first place.
