Sophie Turner faced depression post Game of Thrones

British star Sophie Turner, who became popular for her character as Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones, said in an interview with Dr Phil on his podcast Phil in the Blanks that fame had impacted her mental health negatively.

According to eonline.com the actress revealed that negative comments about her character on social media had led her to feeling self-conscious and insecure. “I would just believe it. I would say, ‘Yeah, I am spotty. I am fat. I am a bad actress.’ I would just believe it. I would get (the costume department) to tighten my corset a lot. I just got very, very self-conscious,” she explained.

The insecurity eventually turned into depression, and that is when she began to isolate herself. “I had no motivation to do anything or go out. Even with my best friends, I wouldn’t want to see them, I wouldn’t want to go out with them,” she said.
