Bran Stark is returning to ‘Game of Thrones’

Bran_Stark_Season_3

(From The Independent) Bran Stark is officially going to be in the next season of Game of Thrones after missing the last run.

Isaac Hempstead Wright, who plays Ned Stark’s crippled Warg son in the hit fantasy TV series, confirmed the rumours as true when quizzed by the Irish Examiner.

“I can’t say a lot, but I am back this sesaon and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran,” the young English actor said. “He has some interesting visions.”

Co-showrunner David Benioff has compared Bran to Luke Skywalker, noting that both characters’ absences are key to their dramatic narratives. Bran did not appear in season five after finding the Three Eyed Raven at the end of season four, while Luke went off for some serious Jedi training in the Star Wars franchise.

“It would be far less interesting, after The Empire Strikes Back, to have an hour-long movie in between Empire and Return of the Jedi where Luke is training,” Benioff said. “It’s so much cooler to cut from the end of Empire to the beginning of Return, where he’s become the Jedi.”

Hempstead Wright was missing in season five, along with Kristian Nairn’s Hodor, so that the show could catch up with George RR Martin’s books. Season six is expected to be the first to overtake Martin’s storylines as the 66-year-old author is still penning the next instalment, The Winds of Winter.

Season six will likely air in spring 2016.
