Sophie Turner defends controversial rape scene

Sophie Turner defends controversial rape scene”

Given the fact that there were so many breathtaking sequences in the two trailers for the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, it's hard to think of one moment that we're most excited about.

She claims that it's necessary for these topics to air to give people the "strength" and make them comfortable to be able to talk about their personal experiences.

(The actor later described filming the scene as "a disgusting day to shoot" but that "Sophie dealt with that issue very, very well.") "Sexual assault wasn't something that had affected me or anybody I knew, so I was pretty blasé about the whole thing", she said. When Sophie Turner began preparing for her role as Sansa Stark, she was still a young teenager finding her way through the world.

"And then I shot the scene, and in the aftermath there was this huge uproar that we would depict something like that on television". Being a star on the biggest show on cable put her alongside some beloved characters of both sexes, and she claims once her friends saw her on screen with some good-looking co-stars, they immediately asked her to set them up.

As yet, obviously, the production hasn't actually got off the ground, but it would make sense that we'll see extended run-times, given how much there will be to say around the war between the surviving men and the White Walker army. The controversial scene provoked a great deal of outrage.

"This was a fictional character, and I got to walk away from it unscathed ..." The scene caused a backlash on social media, with many people saying they would boycott the rest of the series. "Stop making it such a taboo, and make it a discussion".

Season seven of "Game of Thrones" debuts on July 16. If you or someone you know has experienced sexual assault, please call 1800 RESPECT on 1800 737 732. The Domestic Violence Line is a statewide free-call number and is available 24 hours, seven days a week.
