Sophie Turner burst into tears in the street in New York on Thursday (16.08.18) because of period pain.

The 'Game of Thrones' actress was spotted enjoying a casual stroll with her fiance Joe Jonas on Thursday (16.08.18), and a little while later she was seen sobbing with the DNCE singer trying to comfort her.

The 22-year-old star - who is best known for portraying Arya Stark in the HBO fantasy series - took to Instagram to explain why she looked so upset, writing alongside the paparazzi photo: ''Lol. Thank god I have a loving fiancé. Periods are a bitch. (sic)''

When one fan suggested there must be another reason for her tears, she hit back: ''Girl.... you've never had cramps? (sic)''

Sophie previously revealed how she likes to keep her relationship as private as possible.

She explained: ''I'm in a relationship, but it's a very private relationship. I'm happier than I've been in a very long time. I very much isolated myself for a while and forgot what was fun. Going out with friends, going out to eat, not really having a care. And people I've met recently in my life have drawn me out of that. It really helps you own those insecurities. The things I tortured myself about before, I can forget about.''

And the 'X-Men: Apocalypse' star gushed about how ''lovely'' being engaged is.

She said: ''I'm still like: Holy s**t! I'm engaged ... It's lovely to be engaged. Not like I achieved anything, but I found my person like I'd find a house that I love and want to stay in forever. There's a sense of peace that comes with finding your person. But there's a drive that comes with your career.

''There's this weird misconception that being married is the greatest thing that'll ever happen to you. But I've always found that my career is something I work for, and when I achieve something, there's a sense that this is the greatest thing I'll do in my life.''
