game-of-thrones-sophie-turner-season-5-hbo.jpg "Game of Thrones" book readers shouldn't expect to be in the know about the direction Sansa Stark's storyline goes in Season 5. As Season 4 pretty much covered all of Sansa's published "A Song of Ice and Fire" material, Sophie Turner says her character's storyline will diverge in the 2015 season.

"'Game of Thrones' is so unpredictable and it was a big surprise what is happening to her this season," Turner tells HitFix while promoting her new movie "Another Me." "I am so excited because it gives me the opportunity to work with new people and it goes in a completely different direction. I think the fans will really like where her storyline is going this season."

In "A Feast For Crows," Sansa and Littlefinger continue to work together in the aftermath of Lysa Arryn's death. Though Turner admits to not reading later "A Song of Ice and Fire" novels because of the way the show differed from them, it sounds like Season 5 will really deviate from its source material for her.

"I kind of read the 'Game of Thrones' books as the seasons [went on]," Turner says, "But now that the storyline and scripts are kind of going away from the books I decided I'm just going to read the scripts so I don't get confused and read the books later."

This likely isn't welcome news for fans already frustrated with the way "Game of Thrones" is changing around its source material, but with Sansa absent from book five, "A Dance With Dragons," and no publish date on book six, "The Winds of Winter," it makes sense why Sansa's storyline would need to be added to or changed.
