‘As an actor, the only way to become a really brilliant actor is to experience as much life as possible and to bring those experiences in,’ Turner began.

‘So this is just another little part of life that I’m experiencing that I get to bring in and hopefully it helps my performance one way or another,’ Turner added.

‘The concept of family has made me an entirely much more emotional person. The empathy is heightened; the feelings about family are just like overflowing,’ she continued.

The former ‘Game of Thrones’ actress is set to make her return to the small screen in the HBO Max drama The Staircase, debuting on May 5.

The eight episode crime drama stars Colin Firth as a crime novelist accused of killing his wife Kathleen, played by Toni Collette, after she is found dead at the bottom of a staircase in their home. Sophie played one of their daughters, Margaret, in the series based on real life events. 

The actress explained that while the tone was different than what she initially expected, she ended up ‘preferring’ the final cut. ‘I wasn’t fully prepared for the tone and told it was a little more comedic than the script it ended up being. But I preferred the story as it was executed ultimately. It was very seductive from the get-go. I was pleasantly surprised about how emotional it was when I saw the first cut.’
