After keeping away from the show for a whole season, Bran Stark will be back for season 6. Isaac Hempstead Wright, who plays the character on HBO's hit fantasy drama Game of Thrones, confirmed the same on Monday to Irish Examiner.
"I can't say a lot, but I am back this sesaon and it's going to get particularly interesting with Bran," he said. "He has some interesting visions."
Bran did not appear in season five after finding the Three Eyed Raven at the end of season four as his story has come to level with whatever was last written by George RR Martin, on whose series A Song Of Ice And Fire the show is based.
What was Isaac upto this year? The 16-year-old was busy with his study and is yet to catch up on the latest season. However, he has been unable to escape the spoilers. He did discuss Jon Snow's fate as well, "I don't know [if actor Kit Harington will return]," he said. "He's said he's not. I wish he would because I love Kit and because the character's so cool. Who knows?" We start filming series six at the end of this month so we'll see."
Bonus? Well of course he would be joined by our favourite half-giant Hodor.
