Isaac Hempstead-Wright reprises his role as Bran Stark in “Game of Thrones” Season 6. Viewers missed him in Season 5 but there was a reason creators excluded him from the season.
The Season 5 had many elements that are not there in the original novel and of course the much talked about brutality in some scenes is not present in source novel too. Viewers have witnessed that many characters didn’t make into Season 5, but they can rest assured that the missing characters would very much be there in “Game of Thrones” Season 6, reports ScreenRant.
Fans who missed Isaac Hempstead-Wright’s Bran Stark in Season 5 would be happy to know that he would be appearing in Season 6. Viewers remember seeing Bran Stark last time when he had made it to his destination along with Ellie Kendrick’s Meera and Kristian Nairn’s Hodor. They were willing to train themselves warging with the Three Eyed Raven.
The first teaser of “Game of Thrones” Season 6, which released with a bang some weeks back features the voice of Bran Stark played in the background. It also indicates that he has developed an ability to see future and unveil the past. Viewers, also get ready to witness his new look! It has been learnt that he has cut his locks and would flaunt a new hair cut.
According to EW, Hempstead-Wright, 16 has lately said that viewers had previously seen Bran Stark getting some glimpses of past and future. Bran Stark had also been familiar with the fact that he could not control the situation.
Hempstead-Wright added that “Game of Thrones” Season 6 would show some very important events that took place in past, would take place in future and are part of the present. Bran would seem to have a detective instinct in the Season and he would be stitching together the various events. Hempstead-Wright stated that it is imperative for Great War. “It’s quite Inception-y.”
The showrunners, Dan Weiss and David Benioff have also lately explained why the character, Bran Stark did not appeared in Season 5. The showrunners remind viewers of the way Luke Skywalker’s Jedi goes through the training timelines of the movie, “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi”. Similarly, Bran Stark also needed to be fully fledged for Season 6 and his exclusion from Season 5 was necessary.
It has been learnt that Season 6 would have some flashbacks to acquaint the viewers with the history of some characters, and that would suit the narrative style of Season 6 no doubt. Viewers would also get answers to some questions that were left unanswered in Season 4.
“Game of Thrones” Season 6 would be aired in April 2016 on HBO.
