Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas basically look like the ideal couple, but it appears that they’ve had some super embarrassing mishaps during their relationship. While talking about her new film Dark Phoenix on an Australian podcast, Sophie got on the topic of stunt doubles and she dropped this bomb.

Sansa, Thank you for teaching me resilience, bravery and what true strength really is. Thank you teaching me to be kind and patient and to lead with love. I grew up with you. I fell in love with you at 13 and now 10 years on.. at 23 I leave you behind, but I will never leave behind what you’ve taught me. To the show and the incredible people who make it, thank you for giving me the best life and drama lessons I could have ever asked for. Without you I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Thank you for giving me this chance all those years ago. And finally to the fans. Thank you for falling in love with these characters and supporting this show right through till the end. I’ll miss this more than anything.
“On Game of Thrones, I had a photo double who people would do double takes at because she looks so much like me. It was insane. Even Joe went up to her at one point and tried to give her a kiss, and then he was like, ‘Oh, sorry, sorry! It’s not Sophie!’”
To clarify how this moment could have possibly happened, here’s a fun fact for you. Stunt doubles and photo doubles are actually different. A stunt double, as you perhaps know, does stunts for the actor so they don’t put in danger themselves.
A photo double, conversely, is supposed to look freakishly like the actor so they can legit be in scenes for them when the character is, for instance, in the background of a shot. So it kinda makes sense that Joe would confuse the two. They were supposed to look alike.
