Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in “Game of Thrones,” will be playing the telepath Jean Grey in Bryan Singer directed “X-Men: Apocalypse.”

[“X-Men: Apocalypse” Spoiler Alert] Turner recently revealed that she has put her own spin on the Jean Grey character she is playing after Famke Janssen, the original Jean Grey, told her to “know her stuff.” Turner said it was not easy to play a mutant and her character struggles a lot with her powers, as Jean finds it difficult to come to terms with the powers. The struggle alienates her a bit along with the stuff every teenager goes through – hormones and boys, writes Digital Spy.

According to Turner, Jean’s most important relationship will be with Charles Xavier, played by James McAvoy, and it won’t be sexual in nature.

“Xavier has this thing – not a sexual thing – for these young vulnerable girls who feel alienated and uncomfortable in their own skin. For Jean, he's like a father figure,” Turner said.

However, director Bryan Singer, a die-hard “Game of Thrones” fan, said that “X-Men: Apocalypse” has themes quite similar to the hit HBO high-fantasy series. In fact, he is obsessed with “Game of Thrones” and described his film as a crossover of sorts.

“I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan,” Singer told Yahoo Movies. "There’s a crossover between X-Men and Game Of Thrones, they’re both about a younger generation finding their powers, finding out who they are, and what their place in the world is."

“Game of Thrones” fans who are not yet updated with the happenings of Season 5 have good news – “Game of Thrones” Season 5 Blu-ray and DVD sets are hitting store shelves in the US on March 15.

Priced at US$79.98 (AU$115.99) for the Blu-ray and US$59.99 (AU$87) for the DVD, the set contains all 10 episodes of “Game of Thrones” Season 5.
