‘Game of Thrones’ Star Isaac Hempstead-Wright Returning for Season 6
8 hours ago | Variety – TV News
At least one fan favorite character is returning to “Game of Thrones.”
Isaac Hempstead-Wright, whose Bran Stark sat last season out, confirmed that he would be returning to the hugely popular HBO series for season 6.
“I can’t say a lot, but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran … he has some interesting visions,” the actor told the Irish Examiner.
Bran Stark, who is one of the youngest of the children of Ned Stark (Sean Bean) and Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley), has not been seen in the series since the end of season four. Most of the characters thought he was dead, although viewers knew that he was actually holed up away from the main action and is presumably developing his warging abilities (i.e. the power to enter the mind of an animal and control its actions).
