Yah00 – Sophie Turner has been in the spotlight since her teens after being cast as the ill-fated princess Sansa Stark in the hit HBO fantasy series, aged 14. It meant that she swiftly built up a considerable following on Twitter (1.34 million), Instagram (5.4 million) and Facebook (2 million), which she says helped her in auditions…She told Porter: “A lot of what I have achieved is about timing and luck, but it is also, and I hate to say it, about a big social-media following…”I auditioned for a project and it was between me and another girl who is a far better actress than I am, far better, but I had the followers, so I got the job. It’s not right, but it is part of the movie industry now.”
Oh you’re a better actress than me? Welp, my Insta game is fire flames so good luck sweetheart. There’s a reason the “best” actors do Broadway and not the most popular ones. Sansa Stark is just straight up Mean Girls-ing the competition.
Totally reminds me of the scene where Ramsay’s side piece Miranda is talking about all the horrible things that have happened to all of Lord Bolton’s former girlfriends and Sansa just straight up puts Miranda through the mental ringer.
Psychological warfare is the name of the game and she learned from the best, Cersei Lannister, who I just assume is as calculated and ruthless in real life.
PS – Lena Headey legit seems like a down to earth girl that can straight up laugh off people cussing her out in public because she is so good as Cersei on Thrones that they can’t disassociate her from the character.
