Chugging a glass of wine or two is routine for many 23-year-old’s, but when ‘Game of Thrones’ star Sophie Turner did it on Tuesday it made an impact.
Turner, best known for her role as Sansa Stark, put back her wine in front of the crowd at a Rangers-Red Wings game at Madison Square Garden, and posted it on Instragram where it was viewed more than five million times:
The chug itself came in at an exceedingly unofficial time of 3.99 seconds, which is plenty respectable, and earned the praise of a number of celebrities like Drake who called Turner ‘an inspiration’ and Vanessa Hudgens who described the performance as ‘ammmmmazing’.
Not only should Turner be commended for her speed, she also managed to smile afterwards as if her feat of strength was nothing at all. Perhaps most importantly, her caption of “Send it for the starks” could be a reference to the video below, which is one of the better videos of all time:
That might be a stretch, but even if Turner isn’t giving a veiled shoutout to Larry the Enticer, she’s probably won a few more fans in the prized hockey fan/Game of Thrones fan/fan of adult beverages demo.
The final season of Game of Thrones airs on April 14 and figures to be more exciting than any game between the Rangers and Red Wings.
