English actress Sophie Turner, famously known for playing Sansa Stark in the hit series Game of Thrones, initially despised the renowned boy band, the Jonas Brothers. However, her perspective drastically changed upon meeting Joe Jonas, whom she eventually fell in love with and married.
Turner, in an interview with Elle magazine, confessed her previous disdain for the popular band. She explained that growing up, she was not a fan of the group and even mocked her friends who were devoted followers. Unexpectedly, fate had a different plan for her, as she coincidentally encountered Joe Jonas.
The encounter took place in 2016, during a trip to New York. Turner's friend suggested inviting Jonas to hang out, but she adamantly refused, expressing her aversion to the band. However, her friends did not give up and continued to arrange an informal meeting. Eventually, Turner agreed to the gathering, albeit reluctantly.
Despite her initial reservations, Turner found herself pleasantly surprised by Jonas' easygoing and humorous personality. This turning point drastically shifted her opinion of the singer, leading her to reconsider her previous judgments. From that moment forward, their relationship steadily evolved into a romantic one.
Joe Jonas, like Turner, comes from a background of fame and success. As a member of the Jonas Brothers, he was part of one of the most popular boy bands of the 2000s. The group gained immense recognition with hits like "Year 3000" and "Burnin' Up." Apart from his musical endeavours, Jonas has also pursued a solo career and gained personal achievements in the entertainment industry.
The couple's relationship quickly bloomed after their initial encounter. In October 2017, they announced their engagement and eventually tied the knot in a surprise Las Vegas ceremony in May 2019. Subsequently, they had a second ceremony in France surrounded by family and friends.
Sophie Turner's transition from despising the Jonas Brothers to falling in love with Joe Jonas is a reminder that first impressions can be misleading. Her story highlights the importance of keeping an open mind and not letting preconceived notions dictate one's perspective.
