Fact: Sophie Turner told The Hollywood Reporter that her drama teacher encouraged her to audition for the HBO drama during lunch. Sophie never thought that she’d become a finalist, let alone land the role of Sansa; she was just having fun with her friends during the audition. Sophie’s mother was the one who gave her the news that she landed the role. Sophie explained, “My mom woke me up one morning and was like, 'Good morning, Sansa.’ I woke up and was like, 'No!!!' and just started crying. It was a really good day.” Talk about the best morning ever!"
