‘Game of Thrones’ Actress Sophie Turner to Host HuffPost Social Media Docu-Series

“Game of Thrones” thesp Sophie Turner has been tapped by the Huffington Post to host an original digital series about how Generation Z is using social media to enact change around the world.

In the 10-episode “#PowerShift” docu-series, the 19-year-old Brit will explore stories from across the globe of how young people are using social media to bring about change, from campaigning for social justice to starting political revolutions.

“Even though we’ve seen example after example around the world of social media deepening connections, improving lives and making the world better, we are still only beginning to understand its potential,” HuffPost co-founder Arianna Huffington said in a statement.

Added Turner, “Social media has amplified the voice for my generation around the world and changed the way that we communicate. I am a huge advocate of social media and thrilled to be given the opportunity to delve deep into its influence and impact on society at large.”

Turner, best known for her portrayal of Sansa Stark in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” is repped by CAA.

“#PowerShift” will be distributed on all 15 global editions of Huffington Post and will be syndicated through the AOL On network. The series was created in partnership with GroupM Entertainment and produced with U.K.-based Broad Bean Media.

AOL bought news-aggregation and blog site Huffington Post in 2011 for $315 million, and Verizon Communications this year acquired AOL in a $4.4 billion deal.
