The acknowledgment came just ahead of the premiere of Game of Thrones‘ final season, in which her character plays a major role. In a retrospective interview, Turner reflected on the show and her career, as well as her engagement to singer Joe Jonas.

She also admitted that she thought she would be single for the rest of her life, despite casting a wide net for dating. “I was fully preparing myself to be single for the rest of my life,” she says. “I think once you’ve found the right person, you just know. I feel like I’m much older a soul than I am in age. I feel like I’ve lived enough life to know. I’ve met enough guys to know; I’ve met enough girls to know. I don’t feel 22. I feel like 27, 28.”
When asked to elaborate on her “girls” reference, Turner elaborated: “Everyone experiments. It’s part of growing up. I love a soul, not a gender.”
Turner stopped short of labeling her sexuality, though she feels no shame in admitting to same-sex experiences.
The final season of Game of Thrones comes to HBO April 14. The next X-Men film, Dark Phoenix, opens in theatres this May.
