Sophie Turner was born on 21st February 1996 in Northampton, England before moving to a small village in the Midlands when she was still a baby, and at the age of 3-years-old, she was already signed up to the Playbox Theatre Company. She told her local newspaper, the Coventry Telegraph: "That was how my obsession grew. I am still in Playbox. My first lead was in a production called Scary Play directed by Stewart McGill, who is amazing. Playbox is a fun environment. Its not just a place for kids to hang around and be silly. We are all very serious about acting. They do not mould you into the actor they want, but let you be yourself. Her mother, Sally also explained: Two of the most memorable productions Sophie was in at Playbox were Red and Se7en, which was circus based; and at school she was very funny as the scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz.
