Sophie Turner’s “Game Of Thrones” Body Double Looked So Much Like Her It Even Fooled Joe Jonas

The Olsen twins have some competition.

We all know Sophie Turner is a queen, both in the North and just in general, TBH.

We also all know she is one-half of the greatest celebrity couple to ever exist, alongside her husband, Joe Jonas.

Literally every story I read about them makes me love them even more, and this one I’m about to tell you is no different.

So, during a recent interview on Australian radio station Nova, Sophie was asked about working with stunt doubles on X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Sophie said, when you get close, they don’t actually look that much like her — after all, they’re mainly there to do the dangerous stunts from a distance.

They don’t really look like me. First of all, they’re much fitter, much more muscle, and just better looking aesthetically in general. I mean, their hair is red.

But, apparently, on Game of Thrones she did have a photo double that looked so similar to her, it actually made people do double (lol) takes.


A photo double is different from a stunt double — they’re the ones who stand in when an actor is in the background rather than being the main focus of a scene, so it’s more important that they look similar to the actors.

And apparently Sophie’s GoT photo double was such a good lookalike that they even fooled her own husband.

“Even Joe went up to her at one point and tried to give her a kiss,” Sophie revealed. “He was like, ‘Oh, sorry, sorry! It’s not Sophie!’”

It looks like the Olsen twins have some competition.
