Sophie Turner Is Doing Just Fine

Perched on a tiny wooded island humming with African rainforest birds, Gorilla Kingdom is one of the main attractions at London Zoo. On this unseasonably mild Tuesday morning in late February, it’s a hive of activity: The lowland western primates who live here have two adorable newborns in their midst. “Look, there she is, with her little one!” says Sophie Turner, pointing toward Effie, the proud mama with her yet-to-be named two week old.

The actor had initially proposed a walk on Primrose Hill, but happily obliged when I suggested the nearby zoo—because who could resist the allure of baby gorillas? When she lived in New York, Turner, 28, would take her daughters, Willa, almost four, and Delphine, two in July, to the Central Park Zoo, and this morning she’s come from Willa’s new West London nursery school in an oversized camel-colored Maison Margiela coat. “The one coat I brought with me from America,” says Turner, who moved from Miami back to the UK last year. “If you can believe it, I only packed one suitcase.”

Her long blond hair tucked casually into her collar, Turner could easily be mistaken for a stylish Swedish au pair on her gap year. She reads aloud in her best thespian voice: “ ‘Effie is our most playful and cheeky female. She was born in 1993 at Copenhagen Zoo, and is well-known in the Zoo for her huge appetite.’  ” This attracts the attention of a nerdy but charming zookeeper, who proceeds to share the particulars of Effie’s birthing story: This baby was born wrapped in its umbilical cord and is lucky to be feeding normally. “Do you see how she’s dangling her baby by one arm? That’s actually not the best way to handle their newborns,” says the zookeeper. “They’re supposed to be wrapped around the body.” A crowd has begun to gather. “So you mean to say she’s a mother of four and she still hasn’t learnt how to carry her baby correctly?” asks a voice in a mock-accusatory tone. Turner looks at me, eyebrows raised. Are we mom-shaming animals now?

But it is, in fact, Turner who has been subjected to mom-shaming—of the most egregious kind. Following news last September that her husband Joe Jonas had filed for divorce after four years of marriage, rumors proliferated in the tabloids and online that she’d been somehow shirking her maternal responsibilities. It was the bad-mother trope, old as time, and it spread wide when images of Turner at a wrap party in Birmingham for Joan—the six-part drama coming to The CW network later this year, inspired by the true story of Joan Hannington, Britain’s most notorious jewel thief—began to circulate. “Sophie Turner Partied ‘Without a Care in the World,’  ” read one headline. Meanwhile, her pop-idol husband was portrayed as the doting dad, captured dutifully tending to his two daughters.

“I mean, those were the worst few days of my life,” says Turner with a sharp intake of breath, the memory still fresh. We’ve moved to a quiet corner in the zoo’s canteen, a vast light-filled space that’s mercifully empty now that the breakfast rush is over. “It hurt because I really do completely torture myself over every move I make as a mother—mum guilt is so real! I just kept having to say to myself, ‘None of this is true. You are a good mum and you’ve never been a partier.’  ”

Interview: Sophie Turner & Odessa Young On Why The Ratliff Sisters Refused To Meet Them

While horror flicks may not be everyone’s cup of tea (gory scenes and jump-scares are a big no-no for us), it’s hard to deny good true crime stories. It’s less visceral (thanks to the “based on a true story” approach), but more importantly, it forces the viewer to look into the inherent darkness of the human condition. “The Staircase” does just that.

From being a feature-length Lifetime movie, and then, a docuseries on Netflix, “The Staircase” is a new 8-episode HBO Max original drama that follows the death of Kathleen Peterson in 2011 and the highly publicised court case that followed Michael Peterson (the husband accused of murder). In this interview, Sophie Turner and Odessa Young talk about playing Michael Peterson’s adoptive daughters – Margaret and Martha Ratliff – and their love for crime drama.

Q: What appealed to you about The Staircase?

ST: I am completely obsessed with true crime stuff. It’s all I do. My husband hates it because I fall asleep listening to podcasts out loud, so he has to fall asleep to: ‘…and then she slit his throat!’ But I love all that stuff, it’s right up my street, so I was so excited to do a true crime drama.

OY: The face value situation of it… that there’s all these really insane things that happened. You have to stretch your understanding of everything to make sense of it; how she died and other strange coincidences that will be further explored in our show that aren’t necessarily explored in the documentary. It completely defies expectations. But the thing that I was really attracted to about it was that our story goes into the actual personal experiences of the characters involved, as opposed to making them adjacent to the tragedy. That is something I don’t think any other media representation of this story – be it a podcast or documentary – has really done.

Q: How familiar were you with the documentary?

ST: I had watched it. I watched it during the pandemic when all everyone was doing was binging TV shows and I became obsessed like the rest of the world. I was just completely intrigued by the entire thing – and then a few months later we were shooting it! The documentary was the first I’d heard of the case, but then obviously I went down a wormhole and it was like, podcast, book and theories on Reddit; there was a whole world to explore.

Sophie Turner Loves True-Crime Stories. Now, She’s Starring in One

The actress on what she’s learned from her role on HBO Max’s The Staircase.

Sophie Turner has always loved the true-crime genre. “I find myself completely drawn to it and utterly fascinated by it. I don’t know why it’s become such a thing, but I love it,” the actress shares with a soft chuckle. “I’m invested, I’m in it. Keep them coming!”

Turner, who grew up before millions of viewers as the tragic heroine Sansa Stark on the smash-hit series Game of Thrones, has returned home to HBO in The Staircase—a dramatized account of the Michael Peterson trial. Peterson, an American novelist, was tried, convicted, and sentenced to life in prison for the murder of his second wife, Kathleen Peterson, who was found dead at the bottom of a flight of stairs. In a twist even stranger than fiction, it was revealed that Elizabeth Ratliff, a friend of the Peterson family, died from a similar fall down the stairs in 1985 in Germany.

Turner plays Margaret Ratliff, who Michael adopted after the death of her mother and father. She relished the first-time challenge of playing a nonfictional character. “That was a whole different kind of ball game for me. We were very, very, very lucky to be able to have our director in touch with quite a few members of people who were involved in the case, Margaret being one of them. She was kind of a point of information to do with the family, for (executive producer) Antonio Campos and for all of us.”

Though the real Margaret added nuance and context to her onscreen depiction, Turner had no personal contact with her. “She just wanted to keep it to herself and Antonio, and didn’t want to quite have those sit-down, in-depth discussions with me, which I completely understand and respect. I think this is, like, one of the most traumatic times in her life, and I was not going to push.”

Sophie Turner Comes Into Her Own

The Staircase star talks to Jessica Chastain about growing up with the whole world watching.

“For ten years, I felt like I needed to be the person that everyone else saw because I was growing up and I didn’t know anything else,” Sophie Turner told Jessica Chastain about coming of age in public as the resilient daughter Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones and the telepathic mutant Jean Grey in X-Men. “I feel like I’m only on the beginning of my journey of evolving into a person I probably should have evolved into.”

Now, Turner is 26 with a husband (equally famous former child star Joe Jonas) and a second baby on the way and a new show, The Staircase, on HBO Max. (The miniseries, co-starring Toni Collette and Colin Firth, tells the true story of a wife’s suspicious death and the investigation that followed.) For the Cut’s May-June cover, the actor spoke with friend and former Marvel co-star Jessica Chastain about what they have in common — particularly how they manage their desire for people to know them more for their work than their private lives.

“I spent a lot of time making mistakes and failing and learning a lot about the industry and about developing characters. But my failures got to be in private,” Chastain said. “I find it so admirable but also unfair that everything is being watched.”

In the below conversation, Turner and Chastain also talk about finding some semblance of normality, the growth they’ve experienced, and their commitment to staying true to themselves.

Jessica Chastain: Do I have lipstick on my teeth? I put it on really quick. Where are you right now? Your backdrop is pretty cool.

Sophie Turner:
No, you look great; I’m in Miami. I just moved here with Joe. When Joe was like, “Let’s move there,” I was like, “I don’t know. I’ve never seen myself as a Florida girl.” But it’s so family friendly, and the food is amazing here.

Jessica: Right now, the Florida bills aren’t so friendly —

Sophie: Yeah. There are a few things … That’s why I was like, “We’re really going to move to Florida?”

The Triumph Of Sophie Turner

With a new HBO show, The Staircase, and a second baby on the way, 2022 is set to be Sophie Turner’s year. She tells Lottie Lumsden how she found her way.

‘I was gunning for Cardi B to walk me down the aisle,’ Sophie Turner says, reminiscing about her wedding to Joe Jonas three years ago. In case you missed her friend Diplo live-streaming the ceremony on Instagram, it was conducted by an Elvis impersonator in a Vegas chapel after the Billboard Music Awards. Turner might have failed in her mission to get fellow attendee Cardi to join her, but that didn’t dampen the party atmosphere on the night. ‘We went around inviting random people we’d met at the awards and were like, “You can come, you can come…” It was so wild. So fun. So awesome!’

Cut to today and Turner is talking to me from her hotel room in New York, where she is staying with her now-husband and their one-year-old daughter. The family are in New York for 24 hours as Jonas is appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show. Tomorrow, they’ll fly back to their home in Miami.

‘I used to be so rock ’n’ roll and spontaneous,’ she fake sighs. ‘I’m sure there’s a part of me that’s still like that, deep down. But becoming a mum, you just become way less cool. I’m like an old woman.’

When we speak, via video call, Turner’s long auburn hair is tied into two low pigtails that fall either side of her face and onto a blue hoodie that covers a blooming baby bump. She is pregnant with her second child and lights up at the mention of it. ‘It’s what life is about for me – raising the next generation,’ she says, smiling. ‘The greatest thing in life is seeing my daughter go from strength to strength. We’re so excited to be expanding the family. It’s the best blessing ever.’

Now that the couple’s first daughter is nearly two, I wonder if she understands that she’s about to become a big sister. ‘I don’t think so,’ Turner says. ‘I’ll point to my stomach and say, “What’s in there?” And she’ll go, “Baby”. But then she points to her own stomach and says, “Baby”, and then she’ll point to her dad’s tummy and say, “Baby”. So, I think she just thinks that a belly is a baby and that’s the name for it. But she is a lot clingier than normal, so I think she has an idea. She wants Mummy all of the time – she’s claiming her territory.’

Sophie Turner, Louis Vuitton’s New Campaign Star, Is Ready to Dress Up Again

Life has been booked and busy for Sophie Turner. Since her days as Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones ended back in 2019, the actor has gone on to star in the popular X-Men franchise, as well as a recurring role on the Quibi series Survive. This past summer, she also took a break from set life when she and husband Joe Jonas welcomed their first baby girl together. Now, Turner is ready to get back to work again. And where better to start than serving on a new Louis Vuitton campaign highlighting its Tambour Street Diver timepiece?

Having worn many of Nicolas Ghesquière’s designs on the red carpets over the years, Turner says she’s always been a big fan of Louis Vuitton. “The way that I dress is always aligned with the way Nicolas designs,” says Turner, adding that she loves how he juxtaposes “strength and femininity.” She says modeling the label’s new watch, which is unisex and water resistant, is perfect timing for her, given she’s recently gotten into collecting timepieces. “My husband [Joe] is into watches, so he leads the way and tells me which watches are cool and which ones aren’t,” Turner says. So far, she’s amassed around six styles, but she says the Tambour Street Diver is one of her favorites yet. “It’s big and it’s chunky, which I like,” she says. “I’ve always liked more masculine watches.”

Playing with watches and accessories isn’t the only thing on Turner’s mind this spring. Admitting that she’s spent much of the pandemic in “sweats and baggy clothes,” Turner shares that she’s now experimenting with new looks, and trying to find her fashion identity as a mom. “I’m excited about embracing fashion again; I’ve been dressing up for myself,” says Turner. “It’s actually really annoying though, because just as I’ve had a baby, everyone all of a sudden wants to wear low-rise jeans. It’s kind of offensive!” What will she be wearing? She has her eyes on the baggy jean trend. “Because I’m a mom, I’m desperate to be cool now. So I’m trying to go with baggy tops and baggy jeans,” she says. “I’m definitely excited to be putting my heels on, and doing my hair and makeup.” Continue reading  »

Sophie Turner on Moving Past ‘Game of Thrones,’ Quibi’s ‘Survive,’ and Mental Health

Some new brides may be inclined to unbox appliances and avoid sending thank-you notes. Sophie Turner, however, was desperate to get back on set.

“‘Dark Phoenix’ had just come out, I had just gotten married, and as soon as the wedding was over I thought, ‘Thank god I can take a breath, now I want to get back to work,’” Turner tells Variety of life after “Game of Thrones” and her marriage to singer Joe Jonas in 2019.

After “Thrones,” which ran for a remarkable eight seasons and landed her an Emmy nomination, Turner sought something new and got it two-fold — jetting off to Italy’s Dolomite mountains to film a survival tale unlike she’d ever seen, for Jeffrey Katzenberg’s upstart mobile video platform Quibi.

“There were so many new things happening in my life at the time so I thought, ‘Okay, maybe I’ll roll with this because it sounds so innovative and exciting,’” she said. Continue reading  »

Sophie Turner Explains Why Making Survive Is So Much “Scarier” Than Thrones Ever Was

At the close of “Please Remain Seated,” the third episode of Sophie Turner’s new series Survive, heroine Jane Solace (Turner) finds herself in the middle of a plane crash. Jane is besieged by glass and the most terrifying effects of gravity — it’s horrifying. This detail isn’t a spoiler, since the entire marketing campaign behind Survive — launching on brand new streaming platform Quibi April 6 — hinges on the fact that Jane is forced to survive after ending up trapped on an icy, deadly mountain with only a stranger named Paul (Corey Hawkins) to help her.

While Turner’s first project, 21st century TV touchstone Game of Thrones, threw direwolves, dragons, and ice zombies at the 24-year-old, she still says the mountains (both physical and mental) of Survive were much more complicated to climb.
The Emmy-nominee started filming Thrones in 2009 when she was just 13. Kicking off Quibi with her very own show remains more daunting. “It’s actually much scarier because the market is so much more competitive now,” Turner told Refinery29 in an email ahead of Survive’s debut. “So there’s a huge amount of pressure to make something unlike anything else that’s being made right now.”

Survive certainly isn’t like anything else in the streaming landscape. First, there are the technical basics of the drama, which debuts with three 10-minutes-or-fewer chapters. Quibi will then release a new episode of the series every weekday until the story is complete (Survive will wrap on Friday, April 17). Then there is the actual, extremely delicate plot of Survive. When viewers meet Jane, she is a patient at a mental health facility called Lifehouse following a death by suicide attempt a year prior. On the outside Jane — who has been diagnosed with PTSD and suicidal ideation — has improved her mental health since her near-death experience. Jane is apparently doing so well, that her caretakers approve her release from Lifehouse.

On the inside, however, Jane is hiding a plan for a final death by suicide. She is hoping to end her life on her flight back home to New York (early episodes of Survive open with a trigger warning). “Mentally, I knew that headspace,” Turner, who shared her own history with suicidal ideation in April 2019, explained about her process to get into Jane’s painful mindset. “All I had to do was more specific research to hone in on the specificities of Jane’s mental illness.” Continue reading  »
