    Sophie Turner is shaping up to be one of Game of Thrones’ most exciting success stories and is officially one half of an LA power couple, but how did she get there? Hard work, patience and not being afraid to lay down her own ground rules.

    During a recent interview with Refinery29, Sophie explained what she would and would not be comfortable doing for a role. And while most actresses would leap to the topic of nudity clauses, Sophie’s stipulation was a little different – focusing instead on her beautiful head of hair.

    ‘I don’t think I could voluntarily shave my head for fear of what it would look like,’ she explained. ‘I have a tiny pea head and broad shoulders, so I don’t think I could do a really short haircut. But who knows? When Game of Thrones comes to an end, maybe I’ll have something of an Emma Watson cutting her hair short moment – maybe I’ll go crazy.’

    Hair is clearly important to 22-year-old Sophie, with the actress going on to explain the effect that it has on her confidence.

    ‘It’s almost like I have a split personality,’ she explained to Refinery29. ‘My redhead persona is Sansa – she’s so strong and independent. So red, to me, is the ultimate strength. I’d like to think of it as my Sasha Fierce moment, but I’m no Beyonce. With the blond, it’s like I’m back to being Sophie. That felt empowering as well because I was leaving my teenage years behind and becoming a woman.’

    We love both blonde and red-headed Sophie.
