Sophie Turner Doesn’t Have Time For Dating, And She’s OK With That

Having been on Game of Thrones for the past five years, 19-year-old actress Sophie Turner has found herself to be very busy these days. Not only is Turner in the fifth season of the hit HBO series, which premiered this past Sunday, but she is currently in production on numerous films, including X-Men: Apocalypse.

However, there is one thing that Sophie Turner feels she may have missed experiencing in her younger years, and that was the dating scene. But when she recently spoke to the Telegraph, Turner said it isn’t really something in which she has had much interest.

“I was never that fussed about it. I’ve always been more dedicated to my work than boys.”

Sophie Turner has had at least one publicly known dating experience that didn’t go so well. Last year, Turner and Vamps guitarist James McVey became an item. But the relationship didn’t last that long, and Turner and McVey had a rather awkward breakup on Twitter.

There was also a rumor last year that Turner and actor Benedict Cumberbatch were engaged. But as the Inquisitr pointed out, it was actually Sophie Hunter to whom Cumberbatch got engaged, not Turner.

Another thing that Sophie Turner mentioned she may have missed in her younger years was having a wild side. But seeing as she is still young, Turner noted that it will probably come later in life.

“I haven’t had the chance to be rebellious. I did start going out a bit when I was 18, but it lasted for about a month. I’ve probably got that all to come. I’ll probably turn into Lindsay Lohan.”

Game of Thrones is a series known for having graphic violence and explicit sex scenes. When she was younger, Turner mentioned how the sex scenes may have made her parents feel a little uncomfortable at first, but they have gotten “used to it” over the years.

“They knew it was a good, quality show. If it hadn’t been, I don’t think they would have been happy. But they appreciated that it was all necessary.”

Turner added that being on Game of Thrones has taught her what she needs to know about sex. But her mother did attempt to talk to her about the subject when she was 16.

“I said, ‘This isn’t necessary, I know everything.’ I know every single thing that a person can do – and more. The show is very inventive.”

Sophie Turner began acting when she was three years old. And while she may continue to act for a long time, Turner did tell Entertainment Weekly that she does have a desire for a normal job.

“Acting is so unpredictable, except when working on [Game ofThrones]. I want to keep acting for the rest of my life, but maybe with a random Starbucks job thrown in.”
