Sophie Turner Wiki
Sophie, who was born on 21 February 1996, comes from Chesterton, a small town in Warwickshire. She was born as a twin, but her twin sister did not give birth alive. She has two older brothers named James and Will. Sophie is the last child.
No, Sophie Turner did not inherit her acting talent from her parents. Her father Andrew is employed by a pallet distribution company while her mother Sally teaches primary school children.
Her parents, however, have always supported her passion for acting, which began at the age of three. They got her a membership in the Playbox Theatre Company when she was 3 years old.
For her education, Sophie attended the independent Warwick Prep School. When she was 11 years old, she moved to another independent school, King’s High School for Girls. Acting did not stop Sophie from completing her education, she received 5 A and 4 B in her GSCE.
It was Sophie’s outstanding performance of a Scarecrow in an amateur production of The Wizard of Oz that led her school teacher to propose her to a group of casting directors who were looking for young actresses to fill the roles in what was to become the play of thrones.
After a series of auditions, Sophie got the role. She had met Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) for the first time at one of the auditions, and the two of them connected immediately. Their dreams came true when they got their respective roles. To celebrate the day, they got the 07.08.09 (the date they got the role) tattooed around their elbows.
Sophie’s mother Sally, who received a call from HBO that her daughter had cast the role, was initially skeptical about letting her go, but her father gave the green light and luckily Sophie is a star.
In the first season of the show, Sophie received a Screen Guild Award and Scream Awards nominations. After a series of other nominations, Sophie received her first award in 2015, an Empire Hero Award. In 2016 she received a Huading Award for Best Global Actress and a Glamour Award for Best British Television Actress.
In 2013 Sophie made her debut in her feature film Another Me and also appeared in the television film The Thirteenth Tale. She had a role in 2015’s Barely Lethal. Sophie, who has an illustrious career ahead of her, continues to expand her filmography. As one of her inspirations, she named Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence.
Some reliable publications have estimated Sophie Turner’s net worth at $5 million. An August 2017 publication by Refinery29 stated that the top actors of the GOT, including actors such as Kit Harrington (Jon Snow), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), all earned at least $500,000 per episode of the series, while recurring characters such as Sophie and her best friend Maisie were paid less.
It is also believed that the actors renegotiated their paychecks for season 7 and the season finale.
At this early age, Sophie is sure she is living her dreams. In 2017, she bought her apartment in London. She confessed to Marie Claire that this is her biggest expense yet.
