The actress, who is married to an American popstar, was seen in the historic neighbourhood of Jewellery Quarter on Wednesday (May 24).
British actress Sophie Turner, 27, who is married to Joe Jonas of Jonas Brothers fame and played Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones, was seen in Jewellery Quarter filming for a new show. She is the second person from the Jonas family to have filmed in Birmingham.

The series will be produced with The CW Network, USA in association with All3Media International.
The series is based on Joan Hannington, a notorious jewel thief, and is written by screenwriter Anna Symon (The Essex Serpent and Mrs Wilson) with Helen Black writing episode four.
Sophie Turner stars alongside Frank Dillane (The Essex Serpent, Fear the Walking Dead, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince), as Boisie, a London antique dealer. Kirsty J. Curtis (Match Not Found, Harlots), plays Nancy, Joan’s older sister and a salon worker while Gershwyn Eustache Jnr (I May Destroy You, Top Boy) portrays Albie, an old acquaintance of Boisie who’s made a new life in Spain with his wife Val, played by Laura Aikman (The Split, Gavin & Stacey).
Other actors in the series include Nick Blood (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Safe), Jack Greenlees (Strike, Harlots), Alex Blake (The Crown, Chernobyl), Caroline Faber (Grantchester, Berlin Station) and Dorothy Atkinson(The Gold, Stonehouse).
