Swimsuit-clad Sophie Turner passionately kisses co-star Frank Dillane while filming Joan In Spain – days after she and husband Joe Jonas confirmed they are set to divorce
Sophie had a big smile on her face as she frolicked in the water with Frank, just over a week after she and husband Joe Jonas confirmed their marriage of four years is over.
Sporting wet hair, Sophie wore a bright patterned top over her one-piece as she was lifted up in the air by Frank while she laughed uproariously and kicked her legs in the air.
Frank could be seen almost toppling over as Sophie pushed towards him, after posing up a storm in the sea with her hands on her hips.
Just over one week after announcing that they ‘mutually decided’ to split in a joint statement on Instagram, the 27-year-old English actress, best known for her starring role as Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones, appeared to be focusing on work as she filmed her new drama Joan in Spain.
The estranged couple share daughter Willa, 3, and a second daughter born in July 2022.
The Survive star, who portrays notorious jewel thief Joan Hannington in the upcoming ITVX show, got into character as she wore a blonde wig.
Joan, who was married to professional thief Boisie Hannington (played by Frank), was introduced to a life of crime and the pair became Britain’s most successful diamond thieves.
Not much is known about Frank’s dating history, he was last seen walking hand-in-hand with a mystery woman in Sussex in 2018, but is currently believed to be single.
Sophie and the Joe stated that their breakup was ‘a united decision’ and they ‘mutually agreed’ to end their marriage.
‘After four wonderful years of marriage we have mutually agreed to amicably end our marriage,’ they said in a statement, which she uploaded to her Instagram.
They pair concluded: ‘There are many speculative narratives as to why but, truly this is a united decision and we sincerely hope everyone can respect our wishes for privacy for us and our children.’
Jonas officially filed for divorce from wife Sophie last Tuesday with documents stating that their relationship is ‘irretrievably broken.’
Over the weekend, he got emotional while shed some light on how he’s been doing since news broke that they called it quits.
While performing to a sold-out crowd at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium on Saturday night, the Sucker hitmaker broke his silence over their ongoing divorce.
‘It’s been a tough week. I just wanna say, look, if you don’t hear it from these lips, don’t believe it. Okay?’ the two-time Grammy nominee said during an emotional interlude.
‘Thank you everyone for your love and support. Me and my family love you guys,’ he continued.
After his statement, Joe and his brothers sang Hesitate, which he has dedicated to Sophie in the past.
Turner and Jonas initially met in 2016 after the latter sent his wife a direct message through Instagram.
The hitmaker was previously linked to numerous individuals, including Taylor Swift, Gigi Hadid and Ashley Greene.
He eventually moved on with Sophie, and they went Instagram official with their relationship in January of 2017.
The happy couple became engaged that October, and they held a pair of wedding ceremonies in Las Vegas and southern France in May and June of 2019.
Turner and Jonas subsequently started a family with the birth of their daughter Willa, three, in July of 2020.
The pair waited for two years before they welcomed another daughter, whose name has not been publicly revealed as of yet, in June of last year.
In 2020, the actress spoke fondly about her relationship with Jonas during an interview with Elle, where she expressed that she felt as if she ended up with the right person.
‘I love being married. I think it’s wonderful. I’m sure we’ll have our hiccups and our different things. But right now, it’s like the security and the safety is everything,’ she said.
Turner also discussed exactly what made the Disney Channel alum so attractive as a partner.
‘He’s so handsome, talented, funny, charismatic. I’m really lucky to be with him and have someone like him want to be around me and spend time with me,’ she said.
Back in November, it was announced that Sophie is set to star as Joan – one of the most notorious figures in the London’s criminal underworld.
In a statement at the time, Sophie said she’s ‘so excited’ to bring the ‘fascinating’ story of Joan – known as ‘The Godmother – to life.
‘I’m so excited to be bringing Joan Hannington’s fascinating life story to screen in Joan,’ Sophie said.
‘She is one of the most notorious figures in the criminal underworld of London, earning her the nickname ”The Godmother”.
‘A woman who goes between her thriving and daring career as a jewel thief, all whilst trying to get her daughter back from social services, we see a mother in despair swept up in the exhilarating world of crime,’ she added.
Millions of pounds passed through their hands and the new series has been described as a ‘rags-to-riches rollercoaster’.
Anna Symon is the screenwriter for the project and worked closely with Joan while working on the scripts.
While a release date hasn’t been set yet, it is inspired by Joan’s memoir, I am What I am: The True Story of Britain’s Most Notorious Jewel Thief.
A Synopsis of the new show reads: ‘We’re first introduced to Joan in her twenties, a fiery, uncompromising, and intoxicating character, who is not without her own deep scars and vulnerability, as a doting and loving young mother to four-year-old Debbie.
‘She’s in a disastrous marriage to a violent thug, and when he goes on the run, Joan seizes the moment to leave her old life.
‘Inspired by her desire to care for Debbie and create a secure home for her daughter, Joan makes some heart-breaking decisions as she sets her sights on a better life.’
In an Amazon blurb for her book, Joan is described as a ‘true survivor’.
‘Joan married professional bad boy Boisie Hannington, and embarked on a journey to become one of Britain’s most successful diamond thieves,’ it reads.
‘Literally millions of pounds passed through their hands and Joan and Boisie became members of the criminal elite, but tragedy was soon to strike at the heart of their outrageous lifestyle.
‘In turns funny, shocking and violent, this is a remarkable raw debut from a true survivor.’
