David Knight - 25th July 2014

Sophie Turner is accustomed to being in the midst of awesome destruction - but not like this. The Game Of Thrones actress dons a bomber jacket and steps bravely into present-day reality in Austin Peters' video for Bastille's Oblivion - at a Pennsylvanian demolition derby. 

And although the role of Sansa Stark should've prepared Sophie for pretty much anything, she looks quite anxious as she takes the mic in front of a genuine American blue-collar crowd, who are probably expecting 'The Star-Spangled Banner'. 

This is Austin's third video for Bastille, following his clips for Flaws and Laura Palmer - beautifully shot by Jackson Hunt. They capture the people, the machines and atmosphere of the event as well as Sophie's big moment...
