Some spoilers for Josie below.
You’d be forgiven for failing to recognize Sophie Turner when she first appears in Josie. She’s blonde, for one, ditching the red hair that she’s famous for as Game of Thrones’s Sansa, she’s sporting multiple tattoos, and she’s got a Southern drawl that places her miles away from Westeros. “This is one of the most transformative roles I think I’ve done so far,” Sophie Turner says of Josie, a young woman who turns a sleepy Southern town on its head when it seems that her relationship with an older man (Dylan McDermott) may be more than just platonic. But don’t let appearances fool you: In Josie, much like in Game of Thrones, nobody’s quite who they say they are. Before the movie’s March 16 release, Vulture caught up with Turner to talk about the ins and outs of learning an accent for the film, method acting, and why she’d love to do a comedy.
Without spoiling anything, I’m curious to know how this movie was pitched to you, because it has so many layers to it. Did they tell you the whole story straight off the bat, or did you read the script first?
I was pretty much sent the script straight away — there was no real pitching. I knew the references that Eric [England], the director, had for me were like Killer Joe and True Romance, so I kind of brushed up on those movies. I read the script, watched the movies, and then I implemented a little bit of Alabama Worley in True Romance into it, and obviously the Killer Joe part.
When I spoke to Eric after I read the script, he wanted it to not even give any real hint of a thriller until the very end. We wanted it to be light and bright, and have Josie be this beacon of fun and laughter and light.
The movie also reminded me a lot of Ellen Page’s Hard Candy, insomuch as it features this young woman who’s really weaponized her sexuality. Was there anything that you were kind of wary of in playing this part, particularly because of how young the character’s supposed to be?
Not really, because that’s kind of the whole point of the character. She has to be young and it has to be questionable. It has to be incredibly intriguing that this young girl is so sure of herself, owning her sexuality and completely independent. That’s the alluring thing about her for [McDermott’s character] Hank. There was really no discussion about aging her up or anything, because it felt like it had to be that. Also, actually, the real Josie — obviously “Josie” is this facade that this girl has put on — I think we discussed that her real age was 21, and pretending to be 17. So it was all part of the plan.
What were the conversations like during filming between you and the director, as well as with Dylan McDermott?
Dylan was in character pretty much from the get-go. He went pretty method, actually. It was really, really interesting to see; I’ve never worked with someone who’d kind of gone method before. But going around to his house and having rehearsal, he would have it set up, like, he would be playing country music, and he would open the door and he would have his boots on, and he would talk in a Southern accent. He was 100 percent committed to the role. We would have rehearsals, and Eric and I would talk about the script, but honestly, that was the most interesting thing for me. He would be in his trailer smoking cigars, listening to country music. It was fascinating.

Sophie Turner attends the Louis Vuitton show as part of the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2018/2019 on March 6, 2018 in Paris. Some photos have been added to the gallery, please, credit this site if you take the pics.
I have added 2 new photoshoots of Sophie Turner to the gallery. She looks beautiful!
“I’m excited to be something more than just an actress.”
When our photographer asks Sophie Turner to sit comfortably on a long, white couch, the actress can hardly contain herself. She jokingly places one foot on the cushion in front of her and lunges forward, glancing back at the camera as if to say, “Does this work?” In response to our laughs, she plops down facing us and sits with her legs spread wide—one more silly suggestion before getting serious.
It’s nice to see this side of Turner, who is promoting Wella hair care (namely her favorites, Wella’s WellaPlex, an in-salon color treatment, and FusionPlex, the at-home care system). Her show Game of Thrones isn’t exactly a comedy, and while I’ve never assumed that Sophie and her character, Sansa, were alike—being all serious and ruler-y and sometimes a little murderous—the contrast between the two is surprising. Seeing Turner in person makes me wonder about her day-to-day: Is she this sarcastic and funny all the time? Is that why she and Joe Jonas make such a great couple? What about her friendship with Maisie Williams? Does Williams act like this, too?
But before I can ask personal questions, I remind myself that we’re here to talk about hair—and the actress’s is of course sleek and shiny and catching the perfect amount of sunlight.
“We did it over three different dyes to ensure that it was in perfect condition,” she tells me, after I ask how long it took to get to this shade. “But to be honest, with WellaPlex, even with one dye it would still be in perfect condition. Going from red to blonde is one of the hardest dye jobs to do. WellaPlex balances the effects that a normal dye would have on your hair and completely heals it.”
Now no drastic hair change is off-limits.
“I’d probably go multi-colored next. When I finish Game of Thrones, I’m going crazy.”
That’s when my stomach drops. I don’t want to think about the hit HBO show ending or saying goodbye to characters I love. There’s still so much that can happen in the eighth and final season. What will I watch on Sundays?!

I have added some new stills of Sophie Turner from ‘Huntsville’. She looks awesome and I can’t wait to watch this film.
We have a feeling Sophie Turner might be on a mission to slowly but surely break our hearts into teeny tiny pieces at the moment.
If it’s not her confirmation that season eight of Game of Thrones won’t air until 2019, it’s the actress’ recent revelation of what exactly happened when the show’s famous cast and crew joined together for the final read-through of the hit series.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the star – who plays Sansa Stark in GOT – revealed: ‘At the end of the very last script, they read aloud, “End of Game of Thrones”.’
‘As soon as they read that out, pretty much everyone burst into tears,’ she explained.
‘There was a standing ovation for [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss]. We were all clapping and cheering. It was amazing.’
Describing the moment as a ‘shock to the system’, the newly-engaged Brit said: ‘We actually realised, reading that “end of Game of Thrones line” [at the end of the table read], that that was it. When you’re in it, you don’t really see an end point.
‘It’s just an ongoing thing you’re living with. It was a real shock. It was really sad, but there was an immense amount of pride, too.’
Turner’s description of the final cast reading mirrors that of her co-star and onscreen brother Kit Harington’s reaction to the end of the series.
In an appearance on The One Show earlier this year, the 30-year-old – who was recently spotted selling pine trees in Scotland – admitted he was reduced to tears.
‘We had the read-through last week, in fact, so I know everything now,’ he said.
‘I cried at the end! It wasn’t anything particular that happens. You have to remember, I’ve done eight years of it. I think, no-one really cares about it more than us.’
