‘Game of Thrones’ Actress Sophie Turner Quits School Because She Doesn’t Like Authority

Looks like Sansa Stark is getting too big for her britches despite being a glorified prisoner in House Lannister. That’s me talking about Game of Thrones like I’ve watched more than one episode and didn’t just fast-forward that episode to the part where Daenerys Targaryen was getting schooled on the ways of love by one of her ladies-in-waiting, by the way. In any case, actress Sophie Turner has quit school because yucky teachers tell you what to do there and hey, she’s just a teenager and should be having fun 24/7!!!

From Interview:

“I found it really difficult when teachers talked down to me.

“I thought to myself, ‘Shouldn’t we be having an interesting conversation here?'”

The actress added she has no regrets over leaving school, saying: “I will be able to look back on my teen years as spent on a television set just having the biggest bunch of fun.

“At the moment, I can still treat acting as my favorite hobby since I don’t have a mortgage to pay.”

Ugh, teenagers. They always think they know everything! Oh no, can’t tell me my life won’t always be fun and games with zero responsibility or expectation to act like a mature, intelligent, disciplined adult! For f-ck’s sake. Listen, we all know school sucks. I wanted to quit every day from the time I entered high school until the day I got my diploma. The point is, I didn’t. I realised – as did the people around me – that hey, it might not seem like a big deal to drop out of school to me now at 16, but I’m sure as hell gonna feel like a loser when I’m 25.

Sure, the stakes are different when you’re an actress in the public spotlight, but she’s no worldwide star with any career certainty after this, so homegirl needs to think ahead. Also, I know the final two years after GCSE levels (that’s the equivalent of sophomore year in the US) isn’t mandatory, but it should be. It bloody well should be! ::Marches off indignantly::

  • As far as I know, she’s just swapped going to school for having a private tutor instead, so maybe she won’t end up working down the supermarket after all

  • she just tweeted that it’s was not about teachers, she missed 5 months of school because she was shooting game of thrones and her another movie

  • Jesus christ, this is like the third preachy, whiney post I’ve read in a row on this website. I’m done here.

  • Sophie Turner is studying A levels in psychology, history, English literature and language with a private tutor

    She still keeps in touch with her school friends, and has expressed her particular gratitude to the drama teacher that encouraged her to audition for Game of Thrones.

    She intends to go to uni to study psychology or history.

    Sophie Turner doesn’t need to adjust her attitude, you need to check your facts.
