The post isn’t the first time Turner has discussed her sexuality. In 2019, the X-Men: Dark Phoenix star revealed that she’s not attracted to just one gender and has experimented with women in the past. “It’s part of growing up. I love a soul, not a gender,” she told Rolling Stone.
As fans rejoiced over the news, many were also thrilled that Turner switched up her hair colour, going back to red for the first time since Game of Thrones ended.

Turner has yet to comment on the story, but that’s likely because she’s busy gearing up to film The Staircase, an upcoming true crime show from HBO Max. Toni Collette and Colin Firth are also set to star in the series, which will cover the case of Michael Peterson, who was convicted of murdering his second wife Kathleen. Turner will portray Margaret Ratliff, one of Peterson’s adopted daughters.
