Sophie Turner is best known for playing Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones for the past eight seasons, but there's still a lot that people don't know about the English actress.

Looking back at when she was younger and the hardest parts of dealing with the condition she said: "It's weird I say I wasn't depressed when I was younger but I used to think about suicide a lot". Do you know that if not an actress she would have loved to be a cop in real life. "So I'm still on that, and I'm just about to go into press for the final season of "Game Of Thrones" and a movie "Dark Phoenix" that I did, the latest "X-Men" is about to come out in June, so I'm getting ready for a big press tour for that". "Learning to love yourself is the biggest challenge, I think". "I've suffered with my depression for five or six years now". Obviously, her Jonas tribe were more than excited and cheered for her on social media and it also included her J-sister aka sister-in-law Priyanka Chopra.

The 23-year-old Game of Thrones star was a guest on Dr. Phil's Phil in the Blanks podcast that was released on Tuesday, and shed tears as Dr. Phil praised her for being so open about mental health issues.

We've seen them holidaying together, giving each other a shout out on social media and even star in the Sucker video. "I don't know", she said. I am a bad actress.' And I just believed it.

Sophie also said that she thought about suicide when she was a teenager.

Cast member Priyanka Chopra and her husband, Nick Jonas, arrive at the Los Angeles premiere of "Isn't It Romantic" at The Theatre at Ace Hotel on Monday, Feb. 11, 2019. "I wouldn't say that was the main reason, I think it's some sort of chemical imbalance", Turner said. "I'm on medication and I love myself now, or more than I used to, I think", she shared. I can't go outside. Turner recalled a time when comments about her body or her face or her acting made her so self-conscious that it was affecting her performance in a negative way.

Sophie adds, "I just would cry and cry and cry over just getting changed and putting on clothes and be like, 'I can't do this".
