Game of Thrones‘ Sophie Turner has compared Harvey Weinstein to the show’s King Joffrey and discussed working with Bryan Singer.
The actor, who portrays Sansa Stark in the hit HBO series, was recently interviewed alongside her co-star Maisie Williams to promote the show’s highly-anticipated final season. During the chat, she drew comparisons between the men of Westeros and the abuse of power in Hollywood.
“There’s a lot of Sansa in me,” Turner told Rolling Stone. “You go into something and you think it’s going to be a huge dream, and then you figure out, ‘Oh, wait. I have to be very strategic about everything.'”
Speaking of Weinstein in particular, she went on to identify similarities between the disgraced movie mogul and GoT‘s amoral and evil King Joffrey.
“‘And Harvey Weinstein is Joffrey or Ramsay. Probably worse than that. A White Walker,’” she added.
With Turner previously working with Bohemian Rhapsody director Bryan Singer on the last X-Men movie, she also responded to the numerous sexual misconduct allegations levelled against the filmmaker.
“Our time together was, like Rami [Malek] said, unpleasant,” said Turner. The Bohemian Rhapsody star previously described his own time with Singer as “not pleasant, not at all”.
Meanwhile, Game of Thrones‘ Lena Headey recently explained that her career could have been damaged by refusing to have sex with Harvey Weinstein.
“After [Weinstein] was discovered to be a slimeball, on a grander scale than me just knowing it, I did start thinking, ‘Fuck, maybe because I didn’t shag him, that’s impacted a decade of my working life’.”
