After Nick Jonas tied the knot with our Desi girl, Priyanka Chopra, it's now Joe Jonas' turn to take the wedding vows with Game Of Thrones' sensation Sophie Turner, aka Sansa Stark. As a result she went through puberty before viewers eyes and as a result was thrown into a deep depression over cyber bullying.
Turner, 23, said she's suffered from depression for "about five or six years".
"I don't think I had any issues with it until I was 17 and then it just hit me", she explained.
Turner recalled also being shaken by comments about her skin and that she wasn't a good actress.
"I wouldn't say that was the main reason, I think it's a yanno some sort of chemical imbalance". I couldn't believe I was going to get paid for it ... "I'm fascinated by crime and why people do things and the interrogation process, and how you can manipulate your words in order to get someone to confess, that interests me". Learning to love yourself is the biggest challenge, ' Sophie, who is in therapy and on medication, said. "I would say I am spotty, I am fat, I am a bad actress, and I believed it".
Turner explained that people would scrutinize her appearance and acting abilities, which affected her. "Maybe it's just a weird fascination I used to have". "I'm just really passionate about it", she tells Dr. Phil.
"People used to write "Sansa gained ten pounds" or 'Sansa needs to lose ten pounds, '" Turner said, noting that she had trouble performing in character because she was so fixated on the criticism. "I have nothing that I want to do". "I think as an actor as well, it really informs your acting".
Sophie Turner is opening up about the impact that fame has had on mental health. She said The Voice Australia judge made her realize how precious she is and how much she is loved.
Turner described feeling "very alone" when she lived at home with her parents to work as an actress while her friends went off to college.
The "X-Men" actor is now undergoing therapy and treatment and feels much better.
"People talking about it isn't a trend, it's just people actually being transparent for the first time", Turner said.
