Sophie Turner endured the biggest heartbreak of her life and came out stronger. In a new magazine interview, the actor said she did it all for her kids.

Turner and Joe Jonas split in September 2023, after four years of marriage and two children. Soon after news broke of the separation, the pop singer filed for divorce from the actor (something Turner said she learned “through the media”), and the two became embroiled in a complicated custody battle over their young daughters, Willa, 4, and Delphine, 1.

“I mean, those were the worst few days of my life,” Turner told the magazine, recalling the early days of the breakup. “There were some days that I didn’t know if I was going to make it.”

She remembered the media storm that followed the news of the split, and how she worried it would negatively affect her children.

“I would call my lawyer saying, ‘I can’t do this. I just can’t.’ I was just never strong enough to stand up for myself,” Turner said. “And then, finally, after two weeks of me being in a rut, she reminded me that it was my children I was fighting for. Once anyone says to me, ‘Do it for your kids,’ I’m doing it. I wouldn’t do it for myself, but I’ll find the strength for them.”

At the time, the Game of Thrones star was in the United Kingdom filming her series Joan, while Jonas had their two daughters and had filed a request to keep them in the United States.

“I was contracted to be on set for another two weeks, so I couldn’t leave. My kids were in the States and I couldn’t get to them because I had to finish Joan. And all these articles started coming out…” Turner recalled.

At the peak of the issue, Turner filed a lawsuit against Jonas over the “wrongful retention” of their kids. The suit has since been dismissed and the exes are working out the details of their divorce and custody agreement.

Turner has also moved on romantically and is currently dating British aristocrat Peregrine Pearson. Per their recent PDA-filled outings, the two seem to be going strong.
