All her co-stars are branching out to the big screen after finding massive success on HBO, and now sixteen year old “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner is set to make her feature film debut as well. The Daily Mail reports Turner is in negotiations to star in indie thriller “Panda Eyes” opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
Spanish director Isabel Coixet will helm the adaptation of Catherine MacPhail’s novel “Another Me”, with cameras rolling beginning on November 25th in Cardiff. Turner will play Fay, a high school student who becomes embroiled with a doppelganger attempting to take over her life.
Though she joined a local theatre group at the age of three and has wanted to be an actress her whole life, playing fan favorite Sansa Stark on HBO’s critical and commercial hit “Game of Thrones” thus far marks Turner’s first and only professional gig. Not a bad place to start.
