“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.
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.”
