Sophie Turner has revealed social media trolls made her think about suicide “a lot” when she was younger as she admitted remarks posted online impacted her mental health.

The 23-year-old, who portrays Sansa Stark in HBO fantasy drama Game of Thrones, said she never considered taking her own life but described it as a “weird fascination”.

Speaking to US talk show host Dr Phil on his podcast, Turner said: “It’s weird. I say I wasn’t very depressed when I was younger, but I used to think about suicide a lot when I was younger. I don’t know why though.

“Maybe it’s just a weird fascination I used to have, but yeah, I used to think about it. I don’t think I ever would have gone through with it. I don’t know.”

Turner, who grew up in a large Edwardian house near Leamington Spa, said her anxiety over social media trolls progressed to the point she avoided leaving her home and seeing her friends.
