‘I thought about suicide all the time,’ GOT actress Sophie Turner



She spoke out about her ongoing battle with mental health and depression earlier this year in April.

And now Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner has revealed she was forced to turn to therapy when film and TV studios pressured her to lose weight amid her woes.

The 23-year-old made the admission during an interview with Marie Claire Australia, this month.

‘Everyone needs a therapist, especially when people are constantly telling you you’re not good enough and you don’t look good enough,’ Sophie told the publication.

‘I think it’s necessary to have someone to talk to and to help you through that.’

Sophie however, did not specify which film or TV studios pressured her to lose weight.

In 2013, she appeared in the Spanish-British thriller Another Me, in 2015, appeared in the action film Barely Lethal, and in 2016, appeared in the hit film X-Men: Apocalypse.

Sophie added to the publication that she found it hard to grow up on screen on HBO’s Game of Thrones, where she plays Sansa Stark, having starred on the show since she was just 13 years old.

‘My metabolism suddenly decided to fall to the depths of the ocean and I started to get spotty and gain weight, and all of this was happening to me on camera,’ Sophie said.

She said that everyone on social media would have an opinion of her, and she found it particularly hard.

In April, the stunning blonde appeared on Dr Phil’s podcast Phil in the Blanks and spoke about her mental health battle.

She admitted that criticism over her looks and acting on GOT led her to have suicidal thoughts.

Sophie, who is in therapy and on medication, also credited partner Joe Jonas – who she married in Las Vegas on Thursday – with helping her through depression, admitting:

‘When someone tells you they love you every day it makes you love yourself.’

Sophie told Dr Phil that she first began having mental health issues when she was 17, explaining that living at her parent’s home while she worked and her friends and brothers were away at university was a triggering factor.

‘I’ve suffered with my depression for five or six years now. The biggest challenge for me is getting out of bed and getting out of the house. Learning to love yourself is the biggest challenge,’ she said.

Sophie also said that she thought about suicide when she was a teenager.

‘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,’ she said.

‘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.’
