“There’s this weird misconception that being married is the greatest thing that’ll ever happen to you,” Turner, 22, told Marie Claire. “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.”
That’s not to say the “Game of Thrones” star isn’t thrilled about her upcoming nuptials, though.
“I’m still like, ‘Holy s–t! I’m engaged,’” said Turner, who accepted 28-year-old Jonas’ proposal back in October. “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.”
Turner added: “There’s a sense of peace that comes with finding your person. But there’s a drive that comes with your career.”
