‘Game of Thrones’ Actress: Justin Bieber Is The ‘Joffrey’ Of Our Time

Justin Bieber has no doubt been called many things in light of his much talked about antics and questionable behavior, but “Game of Thrones” actress Sophie Turner has thrown a new comparison into the mix.

In an interview with the Sunday Times, Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in the HBO series, likened the Canadian pop star to the unruly king of Westeros while discussing what she was like when she first joined the show.

“I was only 13, I was one of those girls that read OK! 12 times a week, and I was all ‘Ooh, Justin Bieber’— who is the Joffrey Baratheon of our time,” she said.

Tuner might be onto something, seeing as there is already a Tumblr devoted to the “Joffrey Bieber” movement, complete with photoshopped images of Bieber’s head on the king’s body.

The fourth season of “Game of Thrones” premieres Sunday, April 6.
