Sophie is featured at the Coventry Telegraph website. The article discusses her work on Game of Thrones, her education, her family, her theatre background, and her upcoming films, Panda Eyes and The Thirteenth Tale. Please read it if you want to know Sophie a little more. Also included is an adorable new photoshoot with Zunni, the dog her family adopted from Game of Thrones.
In between her hectic filming schedule, Sophie likes nothing more than to relax at home with her family and pet dog Zunni, who the family adopted from the series. She adds: “Growing up I always wanted a dog, but my parents never wanted one. We kind of fell in love with my character’s dire wolf, Lady, on set.
“We knew Lady died and they wanted to re home her. My mum persuaded them to let us adopt her.”
Finally, please visit Regal Michelle Fairley, a wonderful new site for the very talented actress behind Lady Catelyn Stark.
Pictures from the set of Panda Eyes and a new still have been added to the gallery.
Sorry for the absence. It looks like Panda Eyes has already begun filming. Televisual reports on the filming in Cardiff:
Welsh/ Spanish feature co-production Panda Eyes, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors, Velvet Goldmine) and Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark, Game of Thrones) begins shooting in Cardiff this month.
The new feature, from Rainy Day Films and Tornasol Films, has been adapted from the novel Another Me by Cathy MacPhail, a supernatural thriller which centres on a schoolgirl who begins to suspect she may have a double.
Isabel Coixet (My Life Without Me, The Secret Life of Words, Elegy, Map of the Sounds of Tokyo) has written the screenplay and will direct. She has said that the feature is highly influenced by the Japanese terror film The Ring.
The action is set in Wales and Alicante and the shoot in Spain is scheduled to begin mid January.
