Do you hear that everyone? Some girl you don’t know who lives in the Hollywood political echo chamber is demonstrating her righteousness by not working in states she politically disagrees with. Seriously even if you agree with her, do you think it makes a difference?
Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner said she’s boycotting Georgia after that state’s legislation signed a strict abortion ban. Hollywood actors led by Alyssa Milano have publicly stated they are boycotting all states that pass strict laws such as this.
Here’s the hypocrisy. Sophie will not work in Georgia, but she did work in an anti-abortion country (Northern Ireland) for ten years while filming Game of Thrones? Where was her outrage then?
Sophie Turner was included in the legions of outspoken A-Listers who rallied to criticize the American states of Alabama, Georgia and more in the wake of them passing a near total ban on women accessing an abortion.
Two weeks ago, Alabama’s Senate voted to pass the most restrictive abortion laws in the United States, virtually outlawing a woman’s right to an abortion in every circumstance, apart from if the woman’s life is in danger. This was then signed by their female governor, Kay Ivey.
Turner responded by posting a collage of Republican politicians saying, frankly terrifying, comments about rape. [Elle]
Why must we mix politics with entertainment? Everyone has a differing opinion. Does she think that by refusing to work in particular states that SHE is going to make a huge difference?

Why does anyone care where actors/actresses will or won’t film a movie? This woman had no idea she had been filming in a no-abortion zone for ten years. Then promptly signed a document to never work in one again. There is not one bit of logic there.

What bothers me is there are ways to prevent pregnancies, and I feel abortions are just an excuse for a lot of women. Yes, I understand there is rape, abuse, and other sad misfortunes but for the women that get abortions instead of using other contraceptives to prevent it in the first place, shame on them. We should be advocating more on ways to prevent pregnancies instead of killing babies. Abortion should be prevented in almost all cases.
Game of Thrones was a wonderful show and a great showcase for your artistic ability. Please don’t try to mix politics with art. It’s analogous to mixing oil and water. Just doesn’t work. You and everyone else is entitled to your own politic view on this or other issues but don’t make the mistake of mixing politics and art. Just doesn’t work.
She needs to look at what happened to Jennifer Lawrence’s career when she became politically loud-mouthed, and I’m sure Alabama and Georgia are rethinking their positions because Sophie Turner will not work there anymore. Who is Sophie Turner again?
