Sansa Stark has seen her fair share of chaos and brutality as she maneuvered her way through the sordid world of Westeros since she was a young adult.
But for Sophie Turner, who has been playing the role of Stark since she was 12 years old, growing up on HBO’s sets of Game of Thrones taught her more than just acting skills.
In a recent interview with The Sunday Times, via Variety, now 21-year-old Turner revealed that the gritty drama notorious for its adult content actually ended up being a class in sex education.
Id be doing a read-through and wed be talking about very graphic stuff, Turner said. The first time I ever found out about oral sex was from reading the script. I was like Wow! People do that? Thats fascinating!’
Whether it’s incest, murder, sex, rape, or gory beheadings, the famous show has never held back on its explicit content.
Turner’s character became a focal point of brutal sexual violence in Season 5 as her then-husband Ramsey Bolton repeatedly raped her in Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.” The scene generated a lot of controversy, even by Game of Thrones standards, and some fans even threatened to quit the show.
Recently, Turner explained that she hoped the scene would raise discussion about rape in the real world.
Game of Thrones returns July 16.
