          ‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Sophie Turner Reveals Social Media Was ‘Catalyst’ For Depression On ‘Phil In The Blanks’ Podcast


          April 16, 2019

          Sophie Turner, known as Sansa Stark on the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, opens up about what it was like to be in front of the camera starting at a young age, and how she has worked to overcome her own body image issues on the newest episode of Phil in the Blanks podcast.

          Turner reveals that she has suffered from depression for five or six years, sometimes preventing her from getting out of bed and leaving the house. She says she noticed it come on strong when she was 17.

          “It only started to go downhill, I think, when I started to hit puberty and I was gaining weight, and then there was the social media scrutiny and everything,” she tells Dr. Phil on the podcast dropping Tuesday.

          “Did social media cause you to get depressed?” Dr. Phil asks.

          “I think it definitely was a bit of a catalyst,” Turner says. “You see 10 great comments and you ignore them, but one negative comment and it just throws you off.”

          Hear more from the personal interview in the video above, including how Turner says these comments affected her behavior. And, hear why she says it’s important for her to share her story.
