Sophie Turner's career might still be just beginning, but she'll always be the Queen in the North to us Game of Thrones fans. The Sansa Stark actress was recently interviewed by Elle for their "Ask Me Anything" series, where she discussed her favorite things, being married to Joe Jonas, and of course, the HBO smash hit.
When asked in the video below what she misses most about Thrones, the 24-year-old actress is honest in answering, "I miss everything. I like, really, deeply, deeply miss it," before elaborating, "I miss the costumes. I miss the set. I miss the feeling that I got when I walked onto set in my costume, and that was incredibly empowering. I miss the people. I miss everything."
"I would go back to it in a heartbeat," Turner concludes.
Like her co-star and real-life BFF, Maisie Williams, Turner started on Thrones at a very young age. Fans were able to watch her grow up before their eyes, and while the show itself was an extremely positive experience for the Northampton native, being in the spotlight throughout those years was particular tough for her. While speaking to Dr. Phil on his podcast Phil in the Blanks last April, Turner explained that she received tons of criticism over her appearance while on the fantasy series, recalling, "I would just believe it. I would say, ‘Yeah, I am spotty. I am fat. I am a bad actress.' I would just believe it. I would get [the costume department] to tighten my corset a lot. I just got very, very self-conscious."
Fortunately, Turner was able to get through it, and has since become an outspoken advocate for mental health. In the Elle video, she also says that she hopes in 2020 to set up a charity and help people specifically in the UK who are struggling mentally and emotionally.
Game of Thrones made Turner a household name, earned her an Emmy nomination, and yes—us fans would also love to see her return to the show "in a heartbeat."
