Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner had some unique standards when it comes to dating. And owing to this, his husband, Joe Jonas had to embark on a magical journey of his own to earn his wife’s affection. Turner, a huge Harry Potter fan, required her potential partners to possess an in-depth knowledge of the $9.5 billion wizarding world.
While discussing Turner’s love for the series, Joe Jonas, who almost became an MCU star after auditioning for The Amazing Spider-Man revealed how he managed to rise to the enchanting challenge of impressing her.
Joe Jonas revealed Sophie Turner’s ultimatum
During his appearance on The Late Show during the COVID-19 pandemic, Joe Jonas shared a humorous anecdote from the time he started dating Sophie Turner. He recounted how his wife had presented a condition, which sounded more like an ultimatum, if Jonas wanted their relationship to progress.
“Sophie, she said, ‘Look, if we’re going to get married’ — and it was actually, ‘If you’re going to date me, you have to watch the Harry Potters. Because every Christmas, for those of you that are watching that don’t know, every Christmas in the U.K. they just stream and play Harry Potter, all of them. So I watched them all, I fell in love with it.”
Furthermore, during the Zoom call, Jonas revealed how the couple is building legos during their quarantine, also trying to build a Hogwarts castle with more than 7000 pieces. However, after rising to the occasion and winning Turner’s heart, Jonas too asked Turner to join him in his fantasy land – watching his favorite series Lord of the Rings during the interview.
Sophie Turner revealed Joe Jonas’ profound ultimatum before tying the knot
Looks like it’s not just the X-Men star who can give ultimatums. Jonas too had a condition before things began to get serious. During her interview with The Times, the Game of Thrones actress candidly revealed how Jonas issued a profound and transformative ultimatum, that actually saved her life.
“I was going through this phase of being very mentally unwell. He was, like, ‘I can’t be with you until you love yourself, I can’t see you love me more than you love yourself.’ … I think he kind of saved my life, in a way.”
During the same interaction, Turner revealed that she once briefly broke up with Jonas, for a day. Calling it the worst day of her life, she said that both of them got cold feet and 24 hours later, decided to call quits on the breaking up.
Turner believes that it is her husband that has helped her find true happiness in life. And after almost three years of dating, the couple finally tied the knot in May 2019, in a last-minute wedding in Las Vegas.
