Sophie ponders her next move

Laura Kearns 15th Jul, 2017

GAME of Thrones actress Sophie Turner has said she ‘does not know what to do with her life’ when the series ends.

The star from Warwickshire has played Sansa Stark in the hit show for seven years.

And the 20-year-old has spoken out to say how disappointed she is the show will be ending after the next two seasons – with the penultimate series hitting British TV screens on July 17.

Sophie – who lives near Leamington with her parents – said: “It’s been my life since I was 13, so I’m pretty sad about it.

“It’s crazy when the show finishes I’ll pretty much be the same age Kit Harington – who plays Jon Snow – was when he started, which is crazy.

“I don’t know what I’m going to do with my life.”

The actress learned her craft at Warwick’s Playbox Theatre, where she has been Patron for the past year.

She joined the theatre when she was just three years-old but had to leave as her filming commitments became more demanding.

Playbox director Stewart McGill said: “We all have very fond memories of Sophie as a vibrant and energetic young actor which clearly reflects in her career.

“We are following her career with pride and anticipation.”

At Playbox, Sophie played a lead in 2009’s Scary Play and also featured in productions Red and Seven where she showcased her circus skills.

She starred in the last X-Men movie, and is set to be seen in films Alone, and Berlin, I Love You, before the new series of Game of Thrones is screened this summer.
