Sophie Turner was just a young teen when she rocketed to fame as Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones in 2011.

Today, it's not taboo to talk about mental health.

After Game of Thrones concludes its run, Sophie will appear in the lead role in the upcoming X-Men film, Dark Phoenix, due for release in June.

Explaining about her experience of depression, the Northampton-born girl said: "I think it only went down hill when I started to hit puberty, really puberty though at like 17 and my metabolism was slowing down massively, I was gaining weight and then there was the social media scrutiny". "I just got very, very self-conscious", the actor said during an interview with Dr Philon in a podcast titled 'Phil in the Blanks". "I've suffered with depression for about five or six years now, and the biggest challenge is just, for me, getting out of bed and getting out of the house".

"One of the first things that I think struck me about him is we were on a date, and it was time to leave...we were with a bunch of friends and I had a meeting", she explained.

She explains, "I had no motivation to do anything or go out. Even with my best friends, I wouldn't want to see them, I wouldn't want to go out and eat with them".


The Jonas Brothers' recently reunited for Sucker, which also featured Priyanka, Sophie and Danielle Jonas (Kevin's wife). I would cry and cry and cry. Turner got emotional when he mentioned young women hurting themselves because they're feeling so alone while dealing with issues of depression and bullying. "I have nothing that I want to do", she said.

"I love myself now, or more than I used to". The British actress has been spending plenty of quality time with Jonas, and her future in-laws - including actress Priyanka Chopra, who's married to Jonas' younger brother, Nick.

Not only that Sophie revealed she received comments about her skin and how she wasn't a good actress.

Nick also said Priyanka's bond with her family brought the couple together.

Tuner said she's actually in the middle of taking a break from acting.
