At the tender age of 19, Sophie Turner has achieved what many actresses wait painstakingly years for. Already one of Hollywood's hottest young prospects, Turner holds a major role in the phenomenally successful HBO show, Game of Thrones.

Many of you will know Sophie as merely 'Sansa Stark', the elder daughter of Eddard Stark, who has underwent a major transformation, shifting from an immature early teen, to an integral figure of the HBO shows narrative and powerful female role model. Yet, there is so much more to Sophie Turner repertoire than the George RR Martin penned fantasy. At such a young age, the actress has already shown that she has the ability and talent to helm a film as a leading protagonist.

Another Me was Turner's first project in the lead role, a gritty mystery/thriller that told the story of a teenager who finds her perfect life upended when stalked by a mysterious doppelganger. A stark shift from the fantasy world of Westoros. After this, Turner turned her attentions towards the action comedy Barely Lethal, acting alongside Samuel L. Jackson and Jessica Alba. But the best was still yet to come, with another huge addition to her already impressive film catalog.

In what is a reassuring sign for the future of her career, Sophie Turner has landed one of the most coveted roles for a young star in recent years. With the explosion of the superhero genre, every actor/actress wants a piece of the action, with roles fiercely contended. Turner has managed to land one of her biggest roles to date, cast by Bryan Singer as a young Jean Grey in his highly anticipated X-Men: Apocalypse (2016). The film boasts an extraordinary cast, and is sure to be one of the biggest movies of 2016!
