Just a few times ago, the Game of Thrones alum Sophie Turner briefly shared a video of her and Joe Jonas’ two-year-old daughter Willa on her Instagram Story. She took it down—and explained it had been anything but deliberate, as she and Jonas are trying to protect their children’s privacy.
Quoted from EOnline, Turner wrote,
“Earlier today I made an honest mistake accidentally posting a video of our daughter on Instagram stories. We have always advocated for our kids’ rights to privacy so sharing this publicly is something that is against anything I stand for. Our children deserve the right to grow up out of the public eye, to learn and grow in private. If I ever were to post anything about our kids, know that it is unquestionably a mistake. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone who has reposted on any other platform, please delete the video.”
Turner has previously discussed how important it is to her and Jonas to keep her children out of the spotlight for their mental health. She told Elle in May 2022 while pregnant with her second child, “I’m very protective of the life we’ve built. Every time Joe and I do a red carpet together, we make sure it’s for the right reason and makes sense for our careers. You never want to market yourself as a celebrity couple. It’s not that cool.”
“And my daughter never asked for any of this,” she continued, referring to Willa. “I know what it can do to your mental health to be in this industry and to be photographed every day and have the comments. It’s not something I want her to deal with unless she says, ‘This is what I want to do.’ We’re quite strict about that. We’ll encourage her to do whatever she wants but I don’t think we would professionally let her do anything until she’s 18. I also feel quite strongly about my daughter not becoming a nepotism child.”
Sophie Turner Admit Has A Trauma After Game Of Thrones
Sophie Turner was just 15 years old when she was cast on Game of Thrones as Sansa Stark. During the show’s eight seasons, her character transformed from a young girl to the icy Queen of the North, enduring a great deal of violence along the way. In her recent cover story for The Cut, the now 26-year-old Turner talks to Jessica Chastain about how she copes with the heavy content on the show, saying she expects to have some trauma “down the road.”
“The subject matter [on Game of Thrones] was so heavy that I just developed a coping mechanism of just having the most fun in between takes, so I wouldn’t get traumatized,” Turner told Chastain.
Turner acted out several violent scenes while she was still underage, including when Joffrey Lannister — who tormented her frequently — had his guard strip and beat her. When she was 19, she acted out one of the show’s most controversial scenes, where she is sexually assaulted by Ramsay Bolton just after they get married. Actor Iwan Rheon, who played Ramsey, later described shooting that day as “the worst day” of his career and that it was “very difficult to deal with.” The brutal scene also elicited a lot of negative feedback from viewers, who were getting fed up with the show’s seemingly needless sexual violence — a lot of which was not found in the books.
“I’m sure I’ll exhibit some symptoms of trauma down the road,” said Turner. “At that age, I don’t think I could comprehend a lot of the scene matter. And the first few years, I had my mom with me because she was chaperoning me, so she would be very helpful and give me snacks.” On the set of the 2019 X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix, Turner and Chastain dealt with the heaviness of the content by dancing and singing together in-between takes. Turner added, “It does help to have people around that are also willing to step out of it as well.”
