“Game of Thrones” star, Sophie Turner reveals how playing Sansa Stark got her depression

Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on hit TV series “Game of Thrones” star, Sophie Turner has opened up on how criticism of her role led to her depression.

Speaking with Dr Phil on his podcast “Phil in the Blanks,” Sophie said she became depressed around age 17.

“The biggest challenge is just for me getting out of bed and getting out of the house and learning to love yourself I think is the biggest challenge.”

“It only started to kind of go downhill I think when I started to hit puberty, and really puberty, though, at like 17,” she said.

“My metabolism was like slowing down massively, and I was gaining weight. And then there was the social media scrutiny and everything, and that was when it kind of hit me.”

Sophie continued saying comments about her weight and skin as well as criticism about her acting further plunged her into depression.

“I would just believe it,” she said. “I would just say, ‘Yeah, I am spotty. Yeah, I am fat. I am a bad actress.’ And I just believed it.”

“I love myself now, or more than I used to, I think. I don’t think I love myself at all, but I’m now with someone that makes me realize, you know, that I do have some redeeming qualities I suppose,” she said, referencing her fiancé Joe Jonas. “When someone tells you they love you every day, it makes you really think about why that is, and I think it makes you love yourself a little bit more, so, yeah, I love myself.”
