2 new movie stills of Sophie Turner from X-Men: Dark Phoenix have been added to the gallery.
Also, I was checking my hard disk and found a lot of photos of Sophie to upload so, come back soon to see the updates!
Dark Phoenix actress Sophie Turner attended a special panel at New York Comic Con 2018 where she talked about her time on Game of Thrones and her upcoming X-Men movie.
