Game of Thrones actor Sophie Turner, who will play Jean Grey in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, says Jennifer Lawrence was like a big sister to her on the sets of the superhero film.
The 20-year-old actor, known for playing Sansa Stark on the hit HBO show said the Hunger Games star also looked after her when she was ill, reported Femalefirst.
“Despite being one of the most famous actresses in the world, she’s so down to earth. One day I got sick and she was looking after me, constantly checking up on me, getting me tablets. She was like a big sister,” Turner said.

The actor was signed for the new superhero film late last year and she burst into tears as soon as she received the call.
“I rang my mum and she started crying, then I started crying. It was crazy. Then my phone started blowing up,” she said.
X-Men: Apocalypse also stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan and Alexandra Shipp. It arrives in theatres on May 27.
