Sophie Turner won our hearts playing Sansa, an empowered, resilient and fiery woman, but most recently in opening up about her own real life struggles with mental health.

The 23-year-old actress has very honestly spoken about her battle with depression and the turbulent ride that comes with growing up in the limelight. In a recent interview with The Sunday Times, Sophie said that therapy was extremely important in her recovery and how falling in love has been her salvation.

'I was going through this phase of being very mentally unwell,' Sophie revealed of when she first met Joe. 'He was, like, "I can’t be with you until you love yourself, I can’t see you love me more than you love yourself." That was something, him doing that. I think he kind of saved my life, in a way.'

Sophie and Joe Jonas' relationship has had lots of attention as they prove they are definitely #couplegoals. Earlier this month, Elvis married them in a fun Las Vegas wedding to a small group of friends and family.

Thankfully, she’s doing a lot better and although she mentions that the pair broke up once, even if it was just for a day. 'It was the worst day of our lives,' she says. 'For a second, we both had cold feet. Then 24 hours later, we were both like, "Never mind."'

It is this strong connection that she has with Joe that is helping her thrive and gain confidence in herself. In an interview with Marie Claire Australia this month, she talked about their relationship, saying, 'When someone tells you they love you every day, it makes you really think about why that is, and I think that makes you love yourself a bit more. So yeah, I love myself.'

These two! Can they get any cuter??
