The actress, now 23, portrayed Sansa Stark on the hit fantasy series for eight seasons and in a sit down with Dark Phoenix co-star Jessica Chastain for Vogue Paris, admitted she kept her try-out for the life changing role a secret. During the discussion, the 42 year old asked Turner what her parents initially thought of her wanting to be involved with the HBO show. “Well, I didn’t tell my parents I auditioned for Game of Thrones, they just kind of found out,” Turner revealed.

'Game of Thrones' star Jacob Anderson responds to morbid theory about Grey Worm and the killer butterflies of Naath "Game of Thrones" star Jacob Anderson (who plays Grey Worm) says all of the Unsullied are "just gonna die straight away" when they arrive to Naath. "What actually happens is Grey Worm dies a horrible death by butterflies," Anderson said in an interview with INSIDER on the red carpet of the MTV Movie and TV awards. In George R.R. Martin's books, he writes that butterflies in Naath carry a deadly disease that kills any "strangers from beyond the sea" in a horrible manner. Anderson joked that showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss told him personally about Grey Worm's off-screen fate.

His tempestuous friendship and romance with Jon became legendary for its squabbles and led to the band's first breakup in 1986.

He also famously fought a heroin addiction at the height of his fame, getting arrested for possession in 1986 and losing a friend to an overdose in his own home.
