‘Game Of Thrones’ actor Sophie Turner thought her now husband Joe Jonas would be “a dick” before she met him, and previously hated his music out of loyalty to Busted. At least one of those things is now not the case.

“My friends and I were not Jonas Brothers fans”, she tells Elle. “There was this band in the UK called Busted. They had a hit called ‘Year 3000′. It was amazing, and we were huge Busted fans. Then the Jonas Brothers covered the song and made it massive. And Busted broke up. We thought it was all the Jonas Brothers’ fault. So we hated them”.

She also revealed that her first date with Jonas Brother Joe was in a “shitty bar” in Camden “with great music and people throwing up everywhere”. It happened after he DM’ed her on Twitter asking if she’d like to meet while the Jonas Brothers were on tour in the UK.

“I thought, ‘He’s gonna be such a dick'”, she says, having been convinced to meet him by her flatmates. “I brought all my guy friends to come with me to meet him, because in the back of my mind I still worried that he could be a catfish – or I don’t know what. I just wanted my guy friends with me. I had my rugby boys. I was safe”.

It turned out alright though, and – as various people had previously predicted – they did get on well, subsequently marrying last year. Last month they confirmed that they are expecting a child. And, of course, Busted reformed in 2015. So many happy endings!
