SOPHIE TURNER WAS TOLD TO LOSE WEIGHT FOR MOVIE
English actor Sophie Turner (below) from the fantasy show, Game of Thrones, says she has been asked to reduce her weight for her work in the past, even when her size was irrelevant to the role.
The 21-year-old actor says, “There are often times when I have done jobs and they’ve told me that I have to lose weight, even when it has nothing to do with the character. It is so f***ed up,” she said.
The actor came into the spotlight after playing Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones. She initially struggled to adapt to life in the public, so tried to carry on her life as normal. “It was so gradual that I still treat my life and my social media as if I wasn’t in the public eye,” she says. “I was writing rash political stuff that would get a negative reaction and my team would tell me to take it down. Now I am learning to keep my mouth shut.”
