When you're a famous celebrity, it's hard to simply go out to a sporting event. Especially in today's media age, there are always cameras. Everybody has a phone; there's certainly going to be a video or ten of your attendance. They can't do anything embarrassing, because it will probably be caught and broadcasted onto Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and the like. But when it came to Sophie Turner's recent appearance at the New York Rangers game, the celeb took the moment to live up to the bright expectations in the spotlight. Namely, when the jumbotron turned its giant attention towards her, Turner chugged her glass of wine and made the most of the excitement. Now, the footage is available online. You can check it out below.
The humorous Instagram video finds Sophie Turner quickly spotted at a New York Rangers game. The film and TV actress is shown prominently on the mega-screen, and she is certainly a star on the rise — particularly with the growing anticipation for the newest, final season of Game of Thrones and her forthcoming appearance in the new X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix. Rather than be bashful and attempt to hide from the camera's gaze, Turner owned up to the moment. She chugged her glass of wine and provided a nice, silly moment while she was in the spotlight.
While most celebrities typically opt for a quick wave or maybe a passing smile while they are seen on camera, Sophie Turner wanted to make the most of the opportunity. Knowing that all eyes were on her in the hockey stadium, she went the extra mile and gave the onlookers something to be impressed by: namely, her quick drinking skills. While Turner does start to seem a little embarrassed by the end of the video, it's clear that the people in the arena are certainly amused by her efforts.
It is a big year for Sophie Turner, for the reasons mentioned above. Now that her biggest project to date is winding to a close and her work as Jean Grey in the X-Men movies will be given more notice with the newest film in the series, she is certainly garnering a lot of attention for herself. And though it's unclear what exactly will become of her role in the X-Men films with the recently official Disney/Fox merger mudding the waters a bit, she is clearly on the rise (no pun intended with the whole, you know, Dark Phoenix thing). And that means Sophie Turner receives a lot of attention when she attends, say, a local high-profile sporting event.
With that, cheers to Sophie Turner. Here's to your growing fame. Meanwhile, for the latest news in film, television, pop culture, celebrity culture and a whole lot more, you can always be sure to check back with us right here at CinemaBlend for more.
