GAME of Thrones actress Sophie Turner has become patron of Warwick’s Playbox Theatre – where she learnt her craft.
The 18-year-old actress from Leamington plays Sansa Stark in the hit HBO TV series based on George R.R. Martin’s bestselling fantasy novels.
She joined the theatre when she was just three-years-old but recently had to leave as her filming commitments became more demanding.
Playbox director Stewart McGill said: “All of us are delighted that Sophie is willing to continue her links with Playbox in this new role of Patron. We all have very fond memories of her as a vibrant and energetic young actor which clearly reflects in her career.
“We look forward to seeing her at The Dream Factory once again and following her career with pride and anticipation.”
At Playbox, Sophie played a lead in 2009’s Scary Play and also featured in productions Red and Seven where she showcased her circus skills.
