Sophie Turner is making some revelations about her sexuality.
The 23-year-old Game Of Thrones star covers Rolling Stone’s April Issue alongside her GoT co-star Maisie Williams. Sophie and Maisie play sisters on screen – and are BFFs in real life.
In the interview, Sophie candidly spoke about her relationship with Joe Jonas, sharing her mindset right before she met and fell in love with Joe. She said:
“I was fully preparing myself to be single for the rest of my life. I think once you’ve found the right person, you just know.”
She went on to say that she feels she’s lived enough to “know”:
“I feel like I’m much older a soul than I am in age. I feel like I’ve lived enough life to know. I’ve met enough guys to know — I’ve met enough girls to know. I don’t feel 22. I feel like 27, 28.”
Yes, she said guys – and girls! At the mention of girls, Sophie revealed:
“It’s part of growing up. I love a soul, not a gender.”
If you can recall, in an earlier interview with Glamour UK Sophie talked about how Joe helped her conquer what she dubbed an identity crisis. She stated:
“I think for the longest time I didn’t have a real sense of myself. I had a bit of an identity crisis where I was playing all these people and I’d grown up faster than I probably should have done… I kept thinking, ‘Who am I?’
A lot of [my happiness now] is to do with being with a person I’ve fallen in love with, who loves me more than he loves himself, and who wants to see me find my happiness.”
Also in the interview, Sophie jokingly shared that she and BFF Maisie don’t exactly make things easy for their co-stars on set during filming:
“We’re a nightmare to work with. If you’re working with your best friend, you will never get any work done, ever. Anytime we tried to be serious about anything, it’s just the hardest thing in the world.
I think they really regretted putting us in scenes together. It was difficult.”
Game Of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss wrote to Rolling Stone to share a bit more about how the two actresses are on set together:
“It was great to have two insanely witty people playing off each other between setups. Although they did decide to start talking in a Northern (English) accent, which may be real and may be their own invention — being Americans, we couldn’t tell.
But they would sometimes talk in this accent all day. Every once in a while it would find its way into a scene, and we’d have to remind them Sansa and Arya don’t talk like that.”
Oh, you two!
