Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) thought Joe Jonas was gonna be a 'dick' before she met him

The huge interest that we have in our favorite celebrities makes us want to know every single detail about their life; personal or professional. The Game of Thrones cast enjoys a massive fan following. Thus, every interview, every appearance by them catches the attention of millions. Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) has been a constant on social media and our screens since Game of Thrones began. Her chemistry with Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and relationship with Joe Jonas have always charmed us. She gave an exclusive interview to Elle magazine, where she talked about her life and career at length. Surprisingly, she expected Joe to be rude – a dick to be precise- before she met him. Read on!

The earliest connection between the two was Jonas’ agent. Apparently, the agent met Sophie and felt that the two would hit it off really well. Joe was to perform in the UK with his band DNCE for BBC Radio 1’s Teen Awards on 23 October 2016. And a meeting was set up when Joe direct-messaged Turner on Instagram. She said, “I was living with my friends in Camden, in a really rough flat – people were always climbing in and out of windows. When I told my friends, they were like, ‘That’s hilarious. You have to do it. And you have to text us everything he says.’”

The meeting place was a neighborhood bar. “It was just this local shitty bar, dirty, with great music and people throwing up everywhere. It was that kind of a place. Kind of like the worst, but also kind of the best,” Sophie said.

But she was skeptical about him. “I expected him to show up with security and everything. I thought, ‘He’s gonna be such a dick,’ I brought all my guy friends to come with me to meet him because in the back of my mind I was still worried that he could be a catfish – or I don’t know what, I just wanted my guy friends with me- I had my rugby boys, I was safe.

However true our fears or fancies may seem, reality surprises us all. “He didn’t bring security. He brought a friend, and they drank just as hard as the rest of us. I remember the two of us spending only a couple of minutes on the dance floor, and then we just found a space far in the corner and we just talked. We talked for hours, and hours, and hours. And I was like, not bored. It wasn’t contrived. It wasn’t small talk – it was just so easy. And soon we were like, inseparable. I went on tour with him,” Turner said.

The rest, as we would say, is history, and very much the present. Joe proposed on their one-year anniversary, and they announced their engagement in October 2017.

They married twice; a surprise wedding first on May 1, 2019, in Las Vegas at A Little White Wedding Chapel, and then after two months, in a bigger ceremony in Sarrians, a town in the South of France. Although the couple hasn’t confirmed yet, there are strong rumors that they are expecting their first child.

The English actress got married really young; things must be different after marriage. “I feel like the only thing that’s changed for me is having this incredible sense of security. Just the word ‘husband’ and the word ‘wife’ – it just solidifies the relationship. I love being married. I think it’s wonderful. I’m sure we’ll have our hiccups and our different things. But right now, it’s like the safety and security is everything,” she said.

Moreover, she feels the American singer-songwriter is too special. “With Joe, I always felt like I was the one who was punching, like, way above my league. And I still feel like that. He’s so handsome, talented, funny, charismatic. I’m really lucky to be with him and have someone like him want to be around me and spend time with me,” Sophie said.

Relationships are so important in our lives – whether it be with a person or a show like Game of Thrones. They serve as mirrors in which we see ourselves. Game of Thrones is over, but we wish the Queen in the North reigns long and supreme in all her relationships. What are your thoughts? Talk to us in the comments.

Kerry Ingram (Shireen Baratheon) defends the Game of Thrones ending

Almost every actor from the cast of Game of Thrones has commented on what they felt about the ending of the show. Most of them have defended the final season and the end it brought forth; while few have chosen a mild stance of criticism. Kerry Ingram, who played perhaps the most loved child character (Shireen Baratheon) on the show, has become yet another cast member to come out in full support of the ending. In a chat with Bang Showbiz, Kerry explained her own take on the HBO series’ infamous culmination.

Kerry Ingram (Shireen Baratheon) defends the Game of Thrones ending

“I think the ending was good, they took into account a lot of the first season. The show started with the Starks and ended with the Starks,” she said. There’s no denying the fact that House Stark remained a pivot around which the story in Westeros revolved through the eight seasons of GoT. The symbolic value of their words (“Winter is coming”), the ancestry of their lineage, and the sheer Northern resolve to survive and stick together forged the base on which the story unfolded. So, yeah, it was inevitable that the story began and finished with the Starks. But does it describe the way everything happened through the course of that journey? Probably not!

Kerry further continued, “Also, I think that the main reason the ending was so controversial is because the show had been running for so long that people had created their own endings. People write their own fan fiction; they write their own endings and it’s beautiful to see but then people get ideas in their head and the ending will never match up to their ideas. But you can’t please everyone and I personally think it was really, really good.”

Now, this is an argument that many actors have made a case for; that you can’t please everyone. While that’s true, it’s also highly subjective. The last season went under so much scrutiny because people were invested too much and yes, they expected a lot. But those expectations mostly arose from George R.R. Martin’s books and David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’ show. Game of Thrones turned into a richly complex story over its long run; and it seemed like it became difficult to tame the beast. But since the journey was so well built at least up until the sixth season, it was very natural to expect an equally satisfying end. However, despite all criticism and flak, Game of Thrones still remains one of the best shows for a large majority of people.

Kerry’s sweet yet confident portrayal of Shireen Baratheon won her a lot of praise. Shireen’s infectious camaraderie with Ser Davos (Liam Cunningham) and her innocent persona became immortal in the hearts and minds of the fans after her brutal death; which was one of the most shocking moments in Game of Thrones history. Before GoT, Ingram starred in Matilda the Musical from November 2010 to April 2012; for which she received an Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical. Most recently, she appeared in the Netflix’s British Drama series Free Rein for three seasons.

The 21-year old English actress has been writing her own series during the coronavirus lockdown. “It was originally a film but I realized I couldn’t fit everything I wanted into a film. So, it’s now a series and I’ve had quite a few people interested in it; so hopefully, once this (COVID lockdown) is all over, I’ll have a script to pitch,” she said. Well, we wish her all the luck with this exciting new prospect!

So, what do you guys think about Kerry’s view of the ending? Tell us in the comments.

Natalie Dormer talks about her journey from a bullied student to a confident actress

Life throws many challenges at us. Sometimes they can be too much to bear at one time but it is those challenges that make us who we become later in life. Natalie Dormer a.k.a. Margaery Tyrell of Game of Thrones too has had a life full of challenges and she recently talked about in an interview. Read on to find out more!

Buoyed by her recently released Penny Dreadful: City of Angels where she plays a demon, Dormer recently spoke to The Mirror. She reflected on her journey all the way from her school life where she was bullied to becoming a confident actress. She also spoke about why she craves for strong roles and their impact on her.

“I’m fascinated by powerful women who transform their strength into sensuality. I’m very shy in real life and I think there’s a side of me that hopes that by taking on these roles, I can become a great seductress. But I also want to be part of stories that show how women can lead interesting, engaging lives apart from their romantic relationships.”

She made it a point to not back down ever since she was bullied in the school. She said:

“I suffered a lot of bullying in school and, ever since, I’ve made it a point not to back down and to rise up to every situation and become a stronger person. That’s a key aspect of my personality and how I try to live. I needed to work on my confidence level in my 20s until I became more forceful.”

She also made a parallel between the world of 1930’s Los Angeles shown in her latest series to the current world.

“There’s been an incredible political polarization that has been going on in recent years – the demonization of the other, the resurgence of nationalism, pointing the finger at others, and this nasty brand of identity politics. There are very uncomfortable parallels between the state of things today and the kind of things happening in the mid-to-late 1930s and the lead-up to the Second World War.”

She also revealed that she almost made it to the Cambridge university but enrolled herself into a drama school instead. She was also pretty close to her grandfather who in some ways defined her future by supporting her creative juices.

From being bullied to being part of an epic saga like Game of Thrones and Hunger Games, Dormer has truly come a long way. We truly admire her for that.

Actor Josh Whitehouse talks about his canceled Game of Thrones prequel

Josh Whitehouse talks about the cancelled Game of Thrones prequel

They say it’s for the best if certain things don’t work out. But if you ask us, Game of Thrones prequel not happening was just too sad. The prequel, unofficially called The Long Night was going to showcase the history of Westeros dating back 1000 years before the events of Game of Thrones, and it was going to be such a fascinating watch but when the cancellation was announced, let’s be honest — it sucked. Turns out we are not the only one thinking of it. Josh Whitehouse, one of the stars of the doomed prequel has recently talked about the show and what it meant for him. Read on!

While we know that the likes of Naomi Watts had already shot the pilot for the show, we still don’t know the exact reason why the show didn’t take off. Whitehouse was also going to be a part of the show and while he wasn’t going to feature until the second episode, he was still very excited about it. He caught up with TooFab and said that he had not shot for the pilot but was very proud to have got the auditions right.

“It was mind-blowing, just such an honor to even be considered for something like that. I got the audition, I got the job and then I spent a year and a half waiting for it to actually happen, pre-prod stuff.”

 

After waiting for so long he was obviously disappointed but he still looked at the bright side.

“Then it ended up getting canceled and I was like, ‘Oh, alright,'” he continued, “I was just honored to be involved, even to be able to say that is a huge thing for my career, it was such a big show.”

He also thought that because the show got canceled he didn’t have to deal with the pressure of being part of the Game of Thrones world. He said:

“In a sense, like, Game of Thrones was such a huge thing already, it’s kind of nice to not have that pressure, the potential to not live up to expectations and bring something new to the world,” he added. “But either way I would have been happy.”

Well, maybe things do happen for the best. While we would have really liked to see the Bloodmoon world, we have other prequels to look forward to!
