A Boy George biopic is on its way, and the Culture Club star has his eyes on none other than Lady Sansa to take on the lead role.
George dropped by Australian morning radio show Fitzy and Wippa on Monday (June 17), and explained that there were talks over a lot of different people who could play him. “One of the most interesting suggestions was Sophie Turner,” he said.
He quickly shut down potential criticism over a woman playing a gay man. “It’s really strange but that’s been a suggestion — I think that will upset people, which I really like,” he said. “‘Oh she can’t play you, she’s a woman…but when I was 17, I would have loved to have been her.”
Turner replied to the news on Twitter, noting that she’s “SO down.” If it works out, Turner actually might be perfect to play the role. She and the Culture Club singer do kind of look alike, with high cheekbones, piercing blue eyes and strong eyebrows. Nothing is official yet, and the film does not have a release date, but check out Turner’s tweet below.
