Sophie Turner Is 'Fascinated With Crime' And Wants To Become A Cop

Now that "Game Of Thrones" is ending, Sophie Turner (aka Sansa Stark) is considering what comes next.

After watching a mob burn a child at the stake, a bunch of soldiers stab their own leader in the heart, and a politician blow up an entire church full of people on "Game of Thrones," you might find yourself thinking, "Westeros really needs better law enforcement."

Well, it turns out the show's star Sophie Turner might just be the woman for the job. Sansa Stark may have doled out Westerosi justice to Ramsay Bolton by feeding him to his own dogs, but Turner is considering a more conventional path to solving crime.

In an interview with Dr. Phil McGraw for his podcast "Phil In The Blanks" about what she'll do next after "Game Of Thrones," Turner said, as reported by PEOPLE, “I want to do a lot of things, and not just in the film world. At the moment I have a real urge to go to a police academy and become a cop."

“I’m fascinated with crime and why people do things and the interrogation process, and how you can manipulate your words in order to get someone to confess, that’s something that really interests me," she continued.

It's not just police work that she's considering, though. Turner also discussed her interest in psychology, saying, “I’m just really passionate about it. I think as an actor as well, it really informs your acting. I’m just fascinated in the study of why people are the way they are.”

Turner's not the only celebrity to suggest recently that they'd like to leave Hollywood for the legal world: Kim Kardashian recently announced she's studying to become a lawyer and is looking to take the California bar exam in 2022.

Turner can currently be seen on "Game Of Thrones" and will be on the big screen this summer in "X-Men: Dark Phoenix."
