So, during a recent interview on Australian radio station Nova, Sophie was asked about working with stunt doubles on X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
Sophie said, when you get close, they don’t actually look that much like her — after all, they’re mainly there to do the dangerous stunts from a distance.
They don’t really look like me. First of all, they’re much fitter, much more muscle, and just better looking aesthetically in general. I mean, their hair is red.
But, apparently, on Game of Thrones she did have a photo double that looked so similar to her, it actually made people do double (lol) takes.
And apparently Sophie’s GoT photo double was such a good lookalike that they even fooled her own husband.
“Even Joe went up to her at one point and tried to give her a kiss,” Sophie revealed. “He was like, ‘Oh, sorry, sorry! It’s not Sophie!’”
It looks like the Olsen twins have some competition.
