'Nice to play empowering women'

Los Angeles: Actor Sophie Turner says it is nice to essay roles of empowering women.

She revealed that she decides her projects based on portrayal of women.

Turner is popular for her role of Sansa Stark in the recently concluded 'Game Of Thrones'. Now, she will be back as Jean Grey in X-Men Dark Phoenix.

"It was very fun," Turner said when asked about her character's distinctive portrayal on screen.

"But I guess I'm just attracted to kicka** female characters. It's nice to play empowering women. That's all I currently look for in scripts – strong, powerful women. But I think that's what every female actor is looking for in scripts right now," the actor said in a statement.

X-Men Dark Phoenix is said to be a "culmination" of all the movies made under the X-Men franchise. It will see the mutants including Professor Xavier Charles (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) divided over whether to save or destroy Jean Grey (Turner) as her powers get dangerously out of control.

Fox Star India will release X-Men Dark Phoenix in the country in Hindi, English, Tamil and Telugu on June 5.
