Though she has since moved on and is very happy with Jonas, Sophie Turner is the true MVP for attempting to win over Friends actor, Matthew Perry.

In a video for Twitter, Turner answered for some of her past posts on the social media site, including the above-mentioned one.

Hence the reason for her tweet.

The interview was titled #BehindtheTweets, and though Sophie's stories ranged from embarrassing to newfound fame, the best was one that had to do with Friends actor, Matthew Perry.

In the tweet from 2016, Turner wrote about when she encountered "Chanandler Bong", a fan-known reference of Perry's character Chanandler Bing on the long-running sitcom.

"Holy balls", the tweet read. I bought a lighter from Budgens so that I could walk up to him and offer to light his cigarette. She claims that when she finally approached Perry, his smoke was already lit.

Speaking to Australian radio show Nova, the 23-year-old revealed that her Game Of Thrones photo double, Laura Jane Butler, had a few cast and crew members confused because the two look so alike, Metro UK reports.

Turner's admission came as the two actresses were discussing their families, after Chastain, 42, asked, "so what did your parents say when you told them you wanted to get involved?"

Sophie Turner's parents did not know about her many Game of Thrones auditions until she was in the final seven for the role of Sansa (which she eventually got).

Sophie, who recently Wednesday Joe Jonas in a surprise Vegas wedding, confessed she was secretly attending auditions behind her parents' backs because she didn't think she would actually land the part as she and her pals went along as a joke. "And I would see Matthew Perry outside smoking a cigarette".

Revealing about her plans of actual ceremony in France, Turner told Harper's Bazaar UK in May that they plan on making this celebration "as low-key as possible", People cited.
