Sophie Turner reassured ‘afraid’ Tye Sheridan
Tye Sheridan was “visibly afraid” when he had to embrace his ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ co-star Sophie Turner.
The 23-year-old actress - who reprises her role as Jean Grey in the movie - thinks the #MeToo movement is “awesome” but has also made men more aware of their behaviour and fearful of consequences, so she had to reassure her friend, who plays Scott Summers, that it was OK for them to get close during filming.
She said: “We have this intimate scene, I could see him visibly so afraid that I had to be, like, ‘Hey, it’s cool, we’re friends, it’s all good.’
“So you can see there’s a lot of terror. But it has to happen, that’s the price you pay. Give it time and people’s fear will lessen, but they will still be respectful, hopefully, that’s the dream.”
