Can you believe Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas nearly called it quits before they tied the knot?

In a new interview with The Times, the Game of Thrones actress made the shocking disclosure about the time she and her longtime fiance suffered a brief breakup during their relationship. “It was the worst day of our lives. For a second we both had cold feet, and then 24 hours later, we were both like, ‘Never mind,'” Turner told the publication.

Apparently, the split had less to do with any conflict between the newlyweds than it did with the pressure of carrying on a romance in the spotlight. Thankfully, in regards to their reconciliation, "happiness has just trumped it all," she said.

“You want to be normal, go out without the fear of people hounding you," Turner added, "but if I’m happy then I’m not going to give that up to be private.”

Turner and Jonas have endured tougher times than this, as the 23-year-old previously credited her husband for being her rock during her battles with depression, which often put her through a phase of being "very mentally unwell."

"He was, like, 'I can't be with you until you love yourself, I can't see you love me more than you love yourself,'" she told Sunday Times. "That was something, him doing that. I think he kind of saved my life, in a way."

The couple, who tied the knot in a spontaneous ceremony in Las Vegas this month, is expected to talk the aisle with a formal wedding over summer.
