"I did not tell my parents I auditioned for Game of Thrones, they were just crazy, "she explained.
"I and all my friends were auditioned. We just thought it was a nice, okay thing to do. And then I just had to call back after calling back.
"My parents discovered when I was in the last seven, and then my mother was worried, and she called my dad and said," I don't know if we can do this, "continued Sophie.
"But my dad said" Close, this is what she wanted all her life. You have to let her give it a step "."
