Game of Thrones had several characters who started off as little kids and later blossomed into the bold personas we know and love so much. The child actors who were part of the show also grew up with it as the seasons progressed, and many of them have successful careers now. Actress Sophie Turner joined Game of Thrones at the tender age of 13, and was then subjected to an excruciating level of on-screen violence one can only imagine in their worst nightmares. She acted quite professionally, displaying a sense of maturity on par with adults, and hid her traumas all these years.

In a recent interview with The Cut, Turner revealed how she coped with the brutal nature of Game of Thrones in her own childish ways. She said, “The subject matter was so heavy that I just developed a coping mechanism of just having the most fun in between takes, so I wouldn’t get traumatized. I’m sure I’ll exhibit some symptoms of trauma down the road. At that age, I don’t think I could comprehend a lot of the scene matter.”

She continued, “And the first few years, I had my mom with me because she was chaperoning me, so she would be very helpful and give me snacks.”

Even though it was all an act, the brutal violence she witnessed on the set of Game of Thrones must be very scary for young Sophie. What do you think? Talk to us in the comments below!
