Game of Thrones star Isaac Hempstead Wright has given an insight into his character, Bran Stark's infamous stare, something which is in line to his duality as The Three-Eyed Raven.
The 20-year-old actor said he is good at the "intense stare" as he is "completely blind" during filming. "I don't have my glasses and I don't have contact lenses. I need them to see," Wright said in an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
He recalled an instance during shooting the HBO show when Sophie Turner, who plays his on-screen sister Sansa, praised his creepy expression.
Wright recounted, "She said, 'Isaac, your stare is like you're staring into my soul', and I was like, 'I can't see you. That's why'.
The actor also spoke about whether or not he thinks Bran is a good person. “I think he’s the Three-Eyed Raven, who is definitely on the side of the living. But…” he stopped short of finishing his sentence. When Kimmel asked him if he’d heard the theory that Bran turns into the Night King, the actor replied, “I can neither confirm nor deny.”
Game of Thrones will return for the second episode of its final season on Monday.
