Ben From Friends Is Now a Successful Fashion Photographer

Ross Geller's son has come a long way.

Cole Sprouse, aka Ben from Friends, can now add successful fashion photographer to his list of creative talents.

The 25-year-old actor, who made his big screen debut in 1999's Big Daddy opposite Adam Sandler, currently stars as Jughead Jones in hit Netflix teen murder mystery Riverdale. But, acting aside, he's also been busy professionally photographing model Kendall Jenner, Mission Impossible's Hermione Corfield, and, most recently, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner.

Sprouse has been sharing the dream-like images of Tuner from his latest photoshoot on Instagram, in which she's looking ethereal in a Dior dress and pink Erdem gown.

The star, who shared the role of Ross Geller's son Ben in the NBC sitcom with his twin Dylan Sprouse, impressed Tuner with his talent on set, and she also admitted that she was a massive fan of his Disney show The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

"I said to him [on set], 'When I was younger, I watched your show religiously.'That was my jam," Turner told W magazine. "I know every single episode. My eight-year-old self was freaking out."

Sprouse recently revealed that he'd pursue a full-time career as a professional photographer if it weren't for his ongoing acting jobs.

"Photography is a pursuit that allows you to be very hands-on with what you show people of either yourself or the art you want to make, and acting is kind of the exact opposite," he told Teen Vogue.

"You do have a modicum of creative freedom as an actor, but you're still very much a cipher for other people's art. If you're a photographer, you end up being the raw creative force that allows other people to see what kind of narrative you want to be giving or what kind of art that you want people to see."
