Boy George has one particular actress in mind to portray him in a biopic — Sophie Turner.

“There’s been some really interesting suggestions. One of the most interesting suggestions was Sophie Turner. [People will say] ‘She can’t play you. She’s a woman, you know.’ But when I was 17, I would have loved to have been her,” Boy George shared on the Australian radio show “Fitzy and Wippa.”

A biopic on Boy George is reportedly in the early stages.

Turner responded that she is “so down” to portray the Culture Club frontman.

However, one person had some reservations about casting a woman as Boy George. British TV anchor Piers Morgan commented on the potential casting saying it needs a “reality check.”

“Boy George, in his biopic, presumably at some stage has sex with people. How is he going to do that if he doesn’t have the equipment?” Morgan said on “Good Morning Britain.” “There are reality checks to Sophie Turner playing Boy George. She’s a woman. How is she going to have sex? Does Wonder Woman get played by a man? No. “

“When someone is a famous man like Boy George how can it be a woman playing? Create your own character. It’s a very insidious thing that every male character, a woman wants to play, it’s creepy,” he continued.
