Game of Thrones Actress Sophie Turner Says She Has 'Real Urge' To Become A Cop
Los Angeles, CA – English actress Sophie Turner said she has a strong desire to enter the field of law enforcement, now that her role as Sansa Stark on the hit HBO series, “Game of Thrones,” has come to a close.
The 23-year-old actress has been a part of the show, which is currently in its eighth and final season, since its debut when she was just 15 years old, Unilad reported.
On April 17, Turner discussed her potential plans for the future during a sit-down for Dr. Phil McGraw’s podcast, “Phil in the Blanks.”
“I want to do a lot of things, and not just in the film world,” she explained during the interview, according to FOX News.
“At the moment I have a real urge to go to a police academy and become a cop,” Turner continued. “I’m fascinated with 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's something that really interests me.”
The actress revealed she is also interested in studying the field of psychology, People reported.
“I’m just really passionate about it,” she explained. “I think as an actor as well, it really informs your acting. I’m just fascinated in the study of why people are the way they are.”
“I want to know everything,” Turner added.
Turner said she took a break from work to focus on her own well-being after she filmed the show’s final season, FOX News reported.
“I actually am still on my break," she explained. "I took a break off of work to focus on my mental health because I thought it was important."
Turner will soon set out on a press tour with her “Game of Thrones” costars, which will be followed up by the release of her latest work as Jean Grey in the X-Men movie, “Dark Phoenix.”
The season eight premiere of “Game of Thrones” crushed prior records for the series and HBO, as nearly 17.4 million viewers tuned in.
