Sophie Jonas (neé Turner) is the talented English actress who brought Sansa Stark to life for seven seasons in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, a role that even earned her a Primetime Emmy nomination.
She has since gone on to star in several X-Men films as Jean Grey and recently appeared opposite Colin Firth and Toni Collette in The Staircase. Outside of her burgeoning acting career, Jonas is married to Joe Jonas, hence the name change, and the pair have two children. She even appeared (and gave a hilarious performance) in the Jonas Brothers Family Roast special on Netflix.
Next, she’ll star in the social media thriller film Come As You Are alongside Hero Fiennes Tiffin.
