“Game of Thrones” and “Dark Phoenix” star Sophie Turner covers the June 2019 issue of Marie Claire Australia magazine photographed John Russo and styled by Kate Young.
On how her mental health was impacted by fame: “I have experienced mental illness firsthand and I’ve seen what it can do to the people around [the sufferers] as well,” she says. “My metabolism suddenly decided to fall to the depths of the ocean and I started to get spotty and gain weight, and all of this was happening to me on camera.”
On coping with pressure: “Everyone needs a therapist, especially when people are constantly telling you you’re not good enough and you don’t look good enough. I think it’s necessary to have someone to talk to, and to help you through that.”
