As Sophie Turner has become synonymous with Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones, character fans have loved seeing develop over the course of six seasons. Turner has proved she is an actress capable of owning a scene and, at 20 years old, that's no mean feat. Early this year we saw her take the role of Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse, which went down a storm with fans, and we saw her transform into a fully fledged badass woman of the North on Game of Thrones, as seen in the clip below:
Sophie is steadily building up her movie portfolio and we have three new releases to look forward to. Check 'em out!
- Release date: TBA
The movie sees Turner play a troubled teen who develops a relationship with a strange loner who is living a very dull life in the sleepy town of Sebring in Florida. The film is being directed by Eric England, known for such creepy movies as Contracted and Madison County, so that's a definite bonus. We're excited to see what Sophie brings to the movie, which is based on the 2014 Black List script by Anthony Ragnone. There is no trailer as of yet, but keep your eyes pealed.
2. Berlin, I Love You
- Release date: TBA
Turner is set to feature in this tale of numerous love stories set in the German capital. So far, only Jack Huston of Boardwalk Empire fame is listed to work alongside Sophie. There are Hollywood rumors of Jared Leto taking a role too, which we're totally behind. It's more of an art-house film than a blockbuster, with no less than nine directors listed to be working on this project. Berlin is one hell of a cool city, let's hope the movie is just as awesome.

- Release date: 2016
Michael Kassen, Ivana Milicevic and Ray Liotta star alongside Sophie in this tale of an unlikely friendship between a war veteran and a rebellious teenage girl (Turner). Not only is there an age difference, the veteran is also suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This could be one to play with your heart-strings. The movie is directed by Matthew Coppola, no relation to Francis Ford, however. Alone is set to be a confident indie release, exploring the struggles of mental health, the follies of youth, and the troubles of finding your place in the world. The trailer is yet to be released for this movie, but as it's expected to be released this year we won't be waiting long.
We're excited to see Sophie explore further roles and we feel privileged to watch her grow into such a well-rounded and talented actress.
