Turner will play Jane in the thriller Survive, whose plane crashes on a remote snow-covered mountain. With "Paul" (Corey Hawkins), the only other remaining survivor, the duo must fight for their lives as they brave the wilderness and battle brutal conditions.

According to an interview with People Turner said: "I couldn’t be more honored to portray the role of Jane in Survive for Quibi. She’s a complex character fighting against the odds to not only save her life, but to also find her own source of strength and courage. I only hope this can impact anyone struggling with self-worth to understand they are braver than they know and to seek the support they need."

Although fans will be happy that Turner will be returning to TV screens, she stated she would not be playing "Sansa Stark" from Game of Thrones again. She said: "I think it’s time to say goodbye to Sansa. I’m ready-ish to say goodbye to her. I just think, you know, it’s been 10 years of my life and the best 10 years of my life by far, and I finished in a very happy place with Sansa, and it’s time to let her go. I feel like if I played her again it would just be more trauma."

Survive will be streamed only on the new streaming platform called Quibi which features episodes only 7-10 minutes long. We are very excited to see Turner on Quibi very soon!
