If you miss tuning in to see Sophie Turner on “Game of Thrones,” you might want to check out her newest television show venture. Turner will be starring in “Survive,” a new thriller for Quibi.

According to PEOPLE, streaming network Quibi, entertainment company Gunpowder & Sky, and EMH Consulting Group announced Monday that Turner was cast in the show, which is currently in production for Quibi.

Turner will be playing the role of Jane, a girl whose plane has crashed on a mountain. The only other survivor is a man named Paul, played by Corey Hawkins. The thrilling show depicts the survival methods of the two as they fight for their lives.

Turner revealed in a statement, “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.

She continues, “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.”

“Survive” will be directed by Mark Pellington, and is based off of the Alex Morel novel of the same name.

Van Toffler, CEO of Gunpowder & Sky, said in a statement, “After reading the script, it was clear that we’d need to find the right artist to take on the lead rold in ‘Survive’ and we couldn’t be happier than to have Sophie starring, who brings a high caliber of talent to the table.”
