Los Angeles, May 28 (IANS) Actress Sophie Turner says fame has forced her to “grow up faster”.

“I definitely felt I had to grow up faster than I would have done. I’m very driven in terms of work, but I’m almost more playful and silly than my friends. I cling onto childhood,” Turner, who rose to fame through her role of Sansa Stark in the popular series “Game of Thrones”, told InStyle magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“Having a cynical perspective is best; in this industry, there’s just a lot of rejection. We all have that mentality, where we know we’re expendable. We all just thought, this is a job. Try not to get fired,” she added.

The 20-year-old feels “almost embarrassed” about being famous as she feels people “look down” on her because she’s known all over the world.

“I feel almost embarrassed by being in the public eye sometimes. I almost get the feeling that people look down on me because of it. If you’re on a night out, they will definitely tease you for it,” she said.
