Game Of Thrones actress Sophie Turner thinks this way
Depression has become quite rampant in recent times. While many tend to shy away from opening about it, many actors are coming out and sharing how they dealt/deal with it. This will undoubtedly encourage many to choose the right path and get over the situation.
The recent actress to open up about her struggle with mental health is Sophie Turner, who became a household name for her stint as Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones. The actress who debuted as Ned Stark's daughter on 17 April 2011 became a sensation overnight as the show went on air.
But the actress also faced the dark side of the glamour world where she was abused and started facing backlash for her character. In an interview with Dr. Philon, on his podcast, Phil in the Blanks, the actress opened up about it.
She revealed, "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. I had no motivation to do anything or go out. Even with my best friends, I wouldn't want to see them, I wouldn't want to go out and eat with them. I just would cry and cry and cry over just getting changed and putting on clothes and be like, 'I can't do this. I can't go outside. I have nothing that I want to do.''
The actress further added, "It's weird. I say I wasn't very depressed when I was younger, but I used to think about suicide a lot when I was younger. I don't know why though." The Game of Thrones star explains, "Maybe it's just a weird fascination I used to have, but yeah, I used to think about it. I don't think I ever would have gone through with it. I don't know." However, she slowly took up therapy, medication and now she admits that she loves herself more than she used to.
Sophie is all set to be married to American singer and songwriter Joe Jonas.
She will be also playing the lead role in her upcoming Hollywood superhero movie, Dark Phoenix. The movie is the last film from X-Men franchise.
