While speaking to The Wrap, Sophie opened up about the experience of motherhood helping her to connect more with emotions such as family bonding and said, “The concept of family has made me an entirely much more emotional person. The empathy is heightened; the feelings about family are just like overflowing. It’s made me a better actor for becoming, you know, becoming a mother.”
The reason why Turner believes that becoming a mother has helped her become a better actor is that she feels the only way to become a really brilliant actor is to experience as much life as possible. She added, “To bring those experiences in, and so this is just another little part of life that I’m experiencing that I get to bring in and hopefully it helps my performance one way or another.”
