If you missed little Bran Stark while you were watching Jon Snow and his crew battle the white-walkers beyond the wall in season five of “Game of Thrones,” you won’t have to suffer another season without him.
Young master Bran (played by Isaac Hempstead Wright) will be returning to the main-storyline in the next season of the HBO fantasy drama next year. Wright made the confirmation earlier this week when speaking with the Irish Examiner, telling them that his character will be back and with some new visions.
“I can’t say a lot, but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran,” Wright explained in the interview. “He has some interesting visions,” Wright teased.
Wright was asked if he thought his on screen half-brother, Jon Snow, would be returning in season six.
(because for some dumb reason interviewers still ask that question to everyone even though they know the cast can’t talk about it)
Wright simply said that he hadn’t finished the latest season yet. Apparently Wright has been too busy with school to catch-up with the rest of us, and we think that’s just fine. Wright was hopeful though about the return of Snow saying, “I wish he would because I love Kit and because the character’s so cool. Who knows?”
When we last left Bran he was preparing to start his training as a Warg. We expect some terrific things from Bran in the new season and with dragons and wolves and beasts running all over the place, we will love to see Bran take on the white walkers that are on their way south.
