Sophie Belinda Jonas (née Turner; 21 February 1996) is an English actress. She made her professional acting debut as Sansa Stark on the HBO fantasy television series Game of Thrones (2011–2019), which earned her worldwide recognition and a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in 2019.

Turner appeared in the television film The Thirteenth Tale (2013) and made her feature film debut in Another Me (2013). She appeared in the action comedy Barely Lethal (2015) and portrayed a young Jean Grey / Phoenix in the X-Men film series (2016–2019).

Personal life

When asked about actors who served as inspiration to her, Turner cited Natalie Portman for her versatility and dedication, Dakota Fanning for the early start and longevity of her career, and Cameron Diaz because she was a model thrown in the deep end who grew stronger as both a person and an actress.

Turner married American singer Joe Jonas at A Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada on 1 May 2019, right after the 2019 Billboard Music Awards. Following her marriage, Turner legally changed her last name to Jonas; the couple resides in New York City. She and Jonas repeated their marriage vows on 29 June 2019 in the presence of their family and friends in France. Turner's Game of Thrones co-star Maisie Williams was one of two maids of honour, and Jonas's brothers Nick and Kevin Jonas served as groomsmen.
