At only 23-years-old, Sophie Turner looks like she has it all. She’s one of the world’s most successful actresses and has just wed boy band favourite Joe Jonas in a surprise Las Vegas ceremony.

However, throughout her eight years on Game of Thrones playing the role of Sansa Stark, the actress has revealed she suffered from mental health problems, which escalated from body image insecurities.

“I have experienced mental illness firsthand and I’ve seen what it can do to the people around [the sufferers] as well,” she told Marie Claire Australia in an interview for their June issue.

“My metabolism suddenly decided to fall to the depths of the ocean and I started to get spotty and gain weight, and all of this was happening to me on camera.”

Turner explains her bodily changes sparked criticism from fans and she even had film and television studios telling her to lose weight, which she recently explained in an interview with Dr. Phil McGraw.

“You see 10 great comments and you ignore them, but one negative comment and it just like, throws you off,” she told Dr. Phil in April. “People used to write, ‘Damn, Sansa gained 10 lbs.,’ or ‘Sansa needs to lose 10 lbs.’ It was just a lot of weight comments. Or I would have spotty skin because I was a teenager and that’s normal, but I used to get a lot of comments about my skin and my weight and how I wasn’t a good actress.”

She said this caused her to spiral into a state of depression and would even convince herself that the comments being made were true.

“I would just believe it,” the 23-year-old confessed. “I would just say, ‘Yeah, I am spotty, I am fat, I am a bad actress.’ I just believed it. I’d get them to tighten my corset a lot. I just got very, very self-conscious. I would be concerned about angles, I’d be concerned about my face. It would just affect me creatively and I couldn’t be true to the character because I was just so worried about Sophie.”

The actress said that therapy and her new husband have helped her deal with it.

“I feel much better. I’ve been doing therapy at CAST centers, actually. I’m on medication,” she said. “I love myself now, or more than I used to, I think. I don’t think I loved myself at all. But I’m now with someone that makes me realize that I do have some redeeming qualities, I suppose. When someone tells you they love you every day, it makes you really think about why that is and I think it makes you love yourself a bit more. So yeah, I love myself.”
