Joe Jonas almost KISSED Sophie Turner's body double during Game of Thrones filming; Deets Inside
Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are almost inseparable lately. The couple has been spotted together on several occasions. Be it on red carpets, Jonas Brothers performances or taking a stroll in the streets, they are almost always together. Sophie had previously revealed that Joe was around even on the sets of Game of Thrones almost all times. He was so frequent to the sets, he was asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement. While Joe knew about the twists and turns of the final season (thankfully he did not reveal anything), Sophie has now revealed a jaw-dropping incident from the sets.
The actress, who played Sansa Stark on the show, revealed that the makers had a photo double of Sophie on the sets. Once, Joe confused the body the 23-year-old's double as Sophie. The actress revealed that Joe almost kissed Sophie's photo double on the sets of the show mistaking her for Sophie.
“On Game of Thrones, I had a photo double who people would do double takes at because she looks so much like me. It was insane. Even Joe went up to her at one point and tried to give her a kiss, and then he was like, ‘Oh, sorry, sorry! It’s not Sophie!’” she told Nova’s podcast Smallzy’s Surgery. What an awkward moment for Joe! If they managed to fool Joe, we must say that the casting directors deserved an award. For those unaware, a photo double is different from a body double. A body double is involved in action scenes. Whereas a photo double looks like a replica of the original actor who could fill in for the star as per circumstances.
Although people might think to be Sophie's body double has its perks, it is actually a tough job. The GoT star, who is seen as Jean Grey in X-Men Dark Phoenix this week in cinemas, revealed that her body double suffered some serious injuries during the filming of the show. “I had a stunt double for some of the stuff — I actually had two. My first one broke her ankle I think, but they are truly amazing! They do all the heavy lifting for me, and I just fly and wiggle my fingers around," Turner recalled.
