Sophie Turner has said she had the “worst few days” of her life following her split from singer Joe Jonas.

The British actress, 28, who played Sansa Stark in HBO’s hit fantasy series Game Of Thrones, and Jonas, 34, confirmed the end of their four-year marriage in September.

She reflected on the period after they released a joint statement saying the split was “amicable” and pleading for “privacy for us and our children”.

Speaking to British Vogue about tabloid stories that speculated she and Jonas had different lifestyles, Turner said: “Those were the worst few days of my life.

“I remember I was on set, I was contracted to be on set for another two weeks, so I couldn’t leave. My kids were in the (United) States and I couldn’t get to them because I had to finish (the ITV show) Joan. And all these articles started coming out…”

She added: “It hurt because I really do completely torture myself over every move I make as a mother – mum guilt is so real.

“I just kept having to say to myself, ‘None of this is true. You are a good mum and you’ve never been a partier.’”

Turner says she is “still in shock” about the coverage, and she lent on the cast of Joan, about the criminal Joan Hannington, for “emotional support”.

She also credits singer Taylor Swift for being “an absolute hero to me this year” and says she has “never been more grateful to anyone than I am for her because she took my children and me, and provided us with a home and a safe space”.

Turner said: “I’m not very good at processing my emotions. I lock them away and then they’ll bubble up in years to come in some form of depression or anxiety.

“With this role (Joan) I was actually able to process those feelings.”

Turner and Jonas, who have two daughters, tied the knot in May 2019 in Las Vegas following the Billboard Music Awards.

According to papers obtained by the AP news agency, Jonas filed for divorce in Florida’s Miami-Dade County Court citing the marriage being “irretrievably broken”.

Turner also sued Jonas to get hold of their children’s passports, but later reportedly reached a temporary custody agreement.

“I’m unhappy with the way everything played out, especially when it comes to my children,” Turner said.

“They’re the victims in all of this. But I think we’re doing the best we can.

“I’m confident that we can figure it out. Joe is a great father to our children and that’s all that I can ask for.”
