In an appearance with James Corden on The Late Late Show virtually through video call, Joe revealed that only if he watched all the Harry Potter films then only Sophie agree to go on a date with him.
“Sophie, she said, ‘Look, if we’re going to get married’ — and it was actually, ‘If you’re going to date me, you have to watch the Harry Potters,'” Joe said. “Because every Christmas, for those of you that are watching that, don’t know, every Christmas in the UK they just stream and play Harry Potter, all of them. So I watched them all, I fell in love with it.”
Joe also said that he had few stipulations of his own, “And I was like, ‘Well, look, my rule is that you have to watch Lord of the Rings.’ So we’ve been binge-watching Lord of the Rings during this time and building the Legos that go with the movies, which is quite fun.”
Joe then told the show that Sophie was the one with the lego skills, and that his role was primarily supportive, “I help by sorting the different pieces,” he further said “So we’ve done three Lord of the Rings Legos, we’ve done Hogwarts, the castle, which is like 7,000 pieces, the Batmobile, and Stranger Things. So we’re running out of options at this point.”
Well, we can all agree that in a relationship there are a few sticky points that can not be ignored and Harry Potter is one of them. And after the revelation, it turns out that even famous people like Sophie Turner agrees.
