Events Interview

Sophie Turner featured on Nerd HQ’s ‘A Conversation with Badass Women’ panel


Sophie Turner was a featured guest on Nerd HQ’s A Conversation with Badass Women panel yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con. Zachary Levi hosted Sophie alongside Yvonne Strahovski, Retta, Missy Peregrym, Jennifer Morrison, and Ming-Na Wen to talk about, well, badass women!

Sophie talks about the increasing amounts of strong female roles on television, and in a very touching moment admits that her female role model is Lena Headey. Watch the entire panel below:

Sophie also stopped by the IGN Live studios for an interview. She talks about Sansa’s transformation in Season 4 to become a great manipulator, as well as her physical transformation and a very uncomfortable dress. She believes that Sansa will continue to take advantage of Littlefinger’s weakness, and admits that her favorite scenes to film are when she gets a bit beaten up.

She also popped into the Microsoft VIP Lounge, and posed for some Comic Con portraits.

  • Sophie’s amazing! I’m happy she was invited to these shows/panels, she’s smart and funny. And what she said about Lena was really sweet. :)

  • The part about Lena made me tear up a bit. I knew she had a son and that she was going through some personal stuff, but hearing Sophie talk about her with such genuine respect and admiration was beyond sweet!

    I adored that panel, they talked about a lot of challenging and intriguing topics and I think on the whole it was a very necessary and long-awaited type of panel. Everyone had great questions and good things to say!

    Sophie never ceases to amaze me! :)

  • Why didn’t they ask the “Is that Cosplay?” question to the girl with the painted bandage on her face?

  • Shaz:
    Nice WiC! Sophie is a class act, I love that there is a genuine bond between the cast.

    she is! AND she (and Maisie!) is / are completely hilarious / goofy with instagram / twitter. Gotta love these girls.

    anyone saw the gif of Sophie ‘spanking’ Natalie’s ass?! (its at the end of the drone vid as the drone zooms in on Nicolai in the background)

  • Awesome panel! Loved hearing from the ladies and Sophie is always adorable and so well-spoken.
