Now I’m not a party person by any means but if an opportunity were to come up where Sophie Turner and I would be having tequila shots while she slaps me across the face repeatedly, well that’s an experience even someone as boring as me would say yes to in a heartbeat.
The Game of Thrones actress appeared on Conan O’Brien’s talk show to promote X-Men: Dark Phoenix but things quickly went off-topic and the pair started talking about a little game she liked to play with her castmates called “tequila slaps.” The game is exactly what it sounds like: one person takes a shot of tequila and the other slaps them.
Conan being Conan, he decided to play a round of tequila slaps with him as the slapee and Sophie as the slapper, and things went just as you expected.
The sound of that slap on Conan’s face was amazing and I’m pretty sure his soul was removed from his body in that instant. Now for those worried about Sophie getting slapped across the face by her male costars, no need to stress because she gave them permission to do it, so much so that she got bruises.
But judging by the whopper she left on Conan (which she admits was a soft one), I have a feeling that she left more bruises than she received. After all, you don’t become Queen of the North without rocking a killer slap.
Anyway, we here at GOAT are all in for a round of tequila slaps so please swing on by if you and Joe are in the neighbourhood and we’ll get a game started. The handprint on my face bestowed upon me by the Queen of the North and inevitable hangover I’ll get will be something I’ll wear with pride.
