Being the new girl is never easy, but it seems like Sophie Turner had no problems making friends on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse. The 20-year-old actress, best known for playing Sansa Stark in HBO fantasy Game Of Thrones, as revealed that she bonded with her co-star Jennifer Lawrence after the pair had a playful punch up.

Speaking to Just Jared during a promotional pit stop for the latest instalment of the mutant franchise, she said that although they only filmed a couple of scenes together, their time was made memorable by what happened off camera.

Recalling a particular incident she said: "She punched me in the vagina once. I didn't ask her to either. It just happened. Evan [Peters] and I were having a fake fight and I said something like, "I'll c-nt punch you" or "I'll punch you in the crotch" and then Jen thought that I said, "Please c-nt punch me Jen." So she punched me in the vagina and I was like, "Awesome." It was pretty funny.

The flame-haired actress plays a young Jean Grey in Bryan Singer's highly-anticipated follow up to 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past. The movie will focus on the first-ever mutant apocalypse and his bid to rid the world of humans and make mutants the dominate race.

Turner insisted that working with the Oscar–winner was a great inspiration. "Jen and I had a few scenes together. She is definitely a big inspiration to work with and she is just how you'd want Jennifer Lawrence to be. She's exactly the same person that you see in interviews. And she was just amazing. She was really fun, really cool. Hilarious!

The English rose also revealed that she studied Famke Janssen's iconic portrayal of Jean Grey so she could do the role justice. "She didn't really have any tips. She just said, "Know the character." So I just studied the movies and Wikipedia'd the rest. But she's so different to the Jean that Famke portrays that it's almost like a totally different human being."

Turner will appear alongside Lawrence, - who reprises her role as Raven aka Mystique for the third time - Olivia Munn, Nicholas Hoult, and Michael Fassbender when X Men: Apocalypse hits UK cinemas on 18 May.
