Sophie Turner has confessed she freaked out when she met 'Breaking Bad' star Aaron Paul and was shocked to discover he was a fan of hers too
Sophie Turner "geeked out" with Aaron Paul.
The 'Game of Thrones' actress - who plays Sansa Stark in the hit show - was excited to meet the 35-year-old actor because she is such a big fan of his former show 'Breaking Bad', on which he played Jesse Pinkman, while he equally enjoys her work.
She said: "I met Aaron Paul the other day and we were geeking out about each other's shows. I was like, 'Oh my God, Jesse!' and he was like, 'Oh my God, Sansa'. It was so weird and amazing."
Despite the show being a global success, Sophie, 19, admits she still hasn't grasped just how big the programme is.
She said: "I honestly still don't think it's hit me just how big the show has got or why people are putting on ginger wigs.
"This is my first job, so I think when it comes to an end, I'll realise how lucky I was to be part of it.
"It'll hit me later on in life when I'm broke."
Sophie loves working on the show but admits her new life is "bizarre" and hard for her old friends to understand.
She told Look magazine: "It has been bizarre, but wonderful too.
"My formative years have been spent on a TV set, which is really difficult for people back home to understand."
