The Quantico actress took to her Instagram story and shared a few photos of herself and Sophie. She wrote, "Congratulations to all Emmy Nominees this year but especially to you, @sophiet." An incredibly proud J sister (Priyanka) further added, "We love you & are so incredibly proud of you. #JSisters."
In recognition of her portrayal of Sansa Stark, Turner, 23, earned a nod in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category alongside costars Gwendoline Christie, Lena Headey and Maisie Williams. It’s the first nomination for Turner and Christie, the second for Williams, and the fifth for Headey.
HBO’s massively successful and controversial series, Game Of Thrones, has garnered an astounding 32 nominations at the Emmy’s this year. This is the highest number of nominations received by any show, in a single year.
