It’s been a week since Sophie Turner‘s new Quibi show, Survive, debuted on the new streaming service.
In a new interview with Variety, the 24-year-old actress is opening up about teaming up with the new network and the appeal of the project for her.
“The subject matter is so important to me, so everything felt like that’s where I needed to go,” Sophie shared. “[This character] is very set on duping her way out of this facility, and she’s going to go kill herself. She’s incredibly depressed, she doesn’t feel like there’s any hope.”
She added, focusing on the mental health of her character, “But she ends up fighting for a life she didn’t want to live in the first place […] I tried to come at [the role] from as truthful a point of view as I could, just from my past experiences.”
“Without going into too much detail, I’ve definitely been where Jane has been. It wasn’t the biggest stretch for me, I suppose.”
Sophie opened up in another interview, saying that the role was therapeutic for her.
