EXCLUSIVE: CAA has signed actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on HBO’s Game Of Thrones. That series returns to the air this weekend. Her character, spurned by the inbred King Joffrey (who had her father Ned Stark beheaded), finds an intriguing new role in the kingdom’s dynamic as the show builds intrigue. Turner makes her feature film debut later this year starring in Isabel Coixet’s Panda Eyes from Fox International. That film is a psychological thriller based on the Cathy MacPhail novel Another Me, and Turner plays a young woman haunted by a secret past alongside a cast including Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Rhys Ifans, and Claire Forlani. Turner is co-represented by Jane Epstein at Independent Talent Group in the UK.
