‘Game of Thrones’ Star Sophie Turner Lands New Role in TV Series, ‘Survive’

THR is reporting that Sophie Turner has just landed a new TV series role following the end of Game of Thrones.

Per the outlet, the actress, who played Sansa Stark on the HBO megahit, will star with Corey Hawkins in a series called Survive for the forthcoming shortform streaming platform Quibi. The series is currently in production.

“Based on a novel of the same name by Alex Morel, Survive centers on Jane (Turner) and Paul (Hawkins), the only two survivors of a plane crash. After pulling themselves out of the wreckage, they embark on a harrowing journey out of the wilderness, battling brutal conditions and personal traumas,” the report said.

And reacting to the news, Turner said: “I couldn’t be more honored to portray the role of Jane in Survive for Quibi. She’s a complex character fighting against the odds to not only save her life, but to also find her own source of strength and courage. I only hope this can impact anyone struggling with self-worth to understand they are braver than they know and to seek the support they need.”

Along with Game of Thrones, for which Turner earned an Emmy nomination for the show’s final season, the actress has starred in the last two X-Men films.

We can’t wait for Survive!
