In a new profile, Sophie Turner has spoken about her past experiences with women.

As we barrel toward the final season of Game of Thrones, the media circus has begun. The latest big notch: the Stark women covering Rolling Stone.

In the double profile, which features Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner who play the silent killer Arya Stark and Lady of Winterfell Sansa Stark respectively, the pair discusses how it was growing up on set and getting to know one another. But, in Turner's section, she speaks to being engaged to Joe Jonas at just 22.

"I was fully preparing myself to be single for the rest of my life," she said in the story, admitting that having a fiance so young was surprising even to her. "I think once you've found the right person you just know. I feel like I'm much older a soul than I am in age. I feel like I've lived enough life to know. I've met enough guys to know -- I met enough girls to know." Oh. Oh. Ok.

"Everyone experiments," she said of the latter admission. "It's part of growing up; I love a soul, not a gender." The star stopped short of labeling her sexuality.

Williams has also gone on record saying something similar about her sexuality in an interview with Nylon. "I've never sat up and thought about my sexuality for hours. It's like what Shailene Woodley said: 'I fall in love with personalities and not people or genders.' I have no problem with anyone who would want to be labeled, but I also think that it is no one's business," she said

In addition to Game of Thrones though, Williams is gearing up to roll out Dark Phoenix, an X-Men film in which she plays the titular character. In a previous film, she was directed by the disgraced Bryan Singer.

"Our time together was, like Rami said, unpleasant," she said, referencing Rami Malek's comments on the Bohemian Rhapsody director.
