Bran Stark confirms his return to “Game of Thrones” season six, and his role is going to be very interesting, reports say.
Isaac Hempstead Wright, the actor playing the role of crippled Warg son of Ned Stark, said he is back in the next season but cannot say much about his participation.
“It’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran. He has some interesting visions,” the English actor said. According to David Benioff, co-runner of “Game of Thrones,” Bran’s absence is similar to Luke Skywalker —a key to dramatic narratives.
What Bran lacks in his physical attributes his abilities more than compensate, as he is endowed with the ability to enter the minds of people and animals (Warg) and the magical power to prophesy through dreams (greensight). In season four, Bran was absent along with Hodor, played by Northern Irish actor Kristian Nairn, to allow the show to catch up with the author’s books. Bran was last seen having found the three-eyed raven in season four. He was only 12 when he signed up for the role in the first season.
When asked about whether Kit Harrington will return in the next season, the 16-year-old actor answered, “I don’t know if actor Kit Harrington will return. He said he’s not. I wish he would because I love Kit and because the character’s so cool. Who knows?”
Wright added they would begin filming the series at end of June. For now, he is busy with his school life, a report from Irish Examiner says.
