- In Instagram Story posts shared while they're quarantining together, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas gave fans a peek inside their home.
- In the background of one video, there appears to be a castle—begging the question: Do Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas have a Game of Thrones castle in their house as a tribute to Sophie's hit HBO series?
- Here, we do a deep dive to answer that question.
As people around the world self-isolate to do their part to help slow the spread of the coronavirus (opens in new tab), celebrities have been sharing more and more videos—both on social media and via more traditional media outlets like talk shows and late night shows—that give fans a glimpse inside the spaces they call home.
Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas (opens in new tab) have never been shy about letting fans into their private world, but we're getting even more looks their home life than ever now that they're quarantining together (opens in new tab). In one recent TikTok video (opens in new tab) shared by Joe, fans couldn't help but notice a castle in the background, casually chilling in the couple's home.
Take a look for yourself, in case you missed the video (or just the hidden background castle):
Let's zoom in a bit, for a better look:
So, is this castle a nod to Sophie's HBO hit, Game of Thrones (opens in new tab)? Let's investigate by comparing Sophie and Joe's castle (opens in new tab) to the most iconic castles from the series.
Is Sophie and Joe's castle Dragonstone?
No, it's not:
Is Sophie and Joe's castle Winterfell?
Is Sophie and Joe's castle Castle Black?
That'd be a "hell no":
Is Sophie and Joe's castle The Red Keep?
Nope, sure isn't:
Is Sophie and Joe's castle The Eyrie?
Not even close:
So what IS Sophie and Joe's castle?
Our best guess, after a bit of internet sleuthing: Sophie and Joe's castle (opens in new tab) is not Game of Thrones (opens in new tab)-related at all. In fact, it's tied to a completely different magical, British fandom: Harry Potte (opens in new tab)r.
The castle visible in the background of Joe and Sophie's video appears to be a LEGO version of Hogwarts castle:
And, if you want to take a cue from Sophie and Joe (opens in new tab) and beat your quarantine boredom by constructing a LEGO Hogwarts, you can—but it will cost you. The full, 6,020-piece version of the castle is sold out most places and runs for $800 on Walmart's website (opens in new tab):
LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle 71043 Building Kit (6020 Pieces)
LEGO Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire Hogwarts Clock Tower Castle Playset with Minifigures 75948
If that's too rich for your blood, smaller version is available at Target (opens in new tab) for a fraction of the price—$80, to be exact:
We'll consider this case closed unless further evidence is presented.
