'​Game Of Thrones' Star Sophie Turner Spits Eminem Bars

Most of us could probably sing along to the majority of an Eminem track - but it turns out Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner is actually good at it. Like, really good.

After claiming that she spits 'pure fire' on a '#LateLateLondon' edition of The Late Late Show, host James Corden challenged her to put her to walk the walk - or spit the spit, as it were.

She then broke out into a flawless rendition of Eminem's 'The Real Slim Shady', managing to get as far into the song as she could before the lyrics became too explicit.

Just take a moment to think how fast that song is. Sure, you can bash out the chorus to 'Lose Yourself' after a few pints, but this is on a whole other level.

On the show, Sophie - who plays Sansa Stark - also told host James Corden about her mysterious new tattoo.

The 22-year-old actor got fans pretty worked up lately when she shared a photo of her tattoo - a house Stark direwolf sigil and the words 'the pack survives' - on her Instagram.

Perhaps understandably, lots of people thought the tatt was a massive hint that the last remaining members of the Stark clan would survive the upcoming final season.

But Sophie revealed that fans were reading too much into the design, saying: "It's just a quote from last season. Everyone figures that the pack really does survive, but it's just a moral that I like to live by."

Sophie told the host that people had warned her about getting the tattoo, because it was bound to make people think it was a reference to the last season.

"While I was getting it done, people advised me not to because it looked like I was giving everything away," she said. "But I wasn't."

Well, good job that's all cleared up.

In another UK twist to the show's usual proceedings, Corden was also joined by Beatles legend Paul McCartney for a one-off installment of Carpool Karaoke in Liverpool - which proved so special that it brought an emotional Corden to tears.

Along with other famous spots including Penny Lane, the pair also revisited McCartney's childhood home on Forthlin Road - now a National Trust property open to the public - before rounding things off with an impromptu performance at the city's famous boozer, the Philharmonic Dining Rooms.

Can you imagine stumbling across a pub where Macca is singing 'Hey Jude' to a room full of people? Amazing.
