Is the old Bran Stark really dead? Actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright discusses in detail

Game of Thrones Season 7 was quite a ride, and we saw many characters face a whole lot of stuff, much more than an average season of the show. One of the major character story arcs we saw this season was Bran Stark acting all unlike his usual self, which most fans found weird.

Bran was seen as more of the Three Eyed Raven in Season 7, than Bran Stark. Issac Hempstead-Wright, who plays the role of Bran Stark in the show, has now apologized for Bran’s weird behavior this season, in an interview with Vulture. Read on!

Speaking about creeping everybody out this season Issac said :

“Yeah, sorry about that. There were some cool bits to get to play, less so that creepy moment with Sansa. That was weird. I don’t think Bran meant that in a weird way; I don’t think he’s trying to freak his sister out by going, “Yeah, I know everything. Don’t fuck with me.”

“It’s more like Bran is processing everything he’s seen, like, “I’ve seen you there. That happened to you. I’m sorry for what happened to you.” Bran has lost that emotional connection. He just states what he sees in an almost autistic way, not really connecting with things but just saying how they are.

Saying “chaos is a ladder” to Littlefinger was so cool, though. I felt so badass in that scene, like, “Chaos is a ladder … yeeaaaah. How do you like that, Littlefinger?””

He then spoke about that cold goodbye that Bran gave to Meera Reed when she said she was going home :

“While Bran is still grateful for the help of Meera and Hodor, he just sees it as like a math equation on a page. He’s like, “We have to take away that from that so we could get to that, and we needed that to get to there.” He’s looking at everything in a more calculated way now.”

“He’s like a very, very powerful computer or calculator. There is a sense of some kind of personality or some vague flicker of emotion, but more than anything, Bran is just looking at this spreadsheet of equations and things that need to happen. In many ways, I don’t think Hodor and Meera are in his mind at all. He’s so dead set on what has to happen to next.”

He also talked a bit about the Bran/Night King theory, which suggests that they’re the same person :

“Maybe. I think it’s less that they’re the same person and more that they’re two of the ancient beings of Westeros. The Three-Eyed Raven has been around for God knows how long, and White Walkers have been reported since the beginning of time”

As we’ve seen, they were created by the Children of the Forest, so we can’t get much more ancient than that. Perhaps we can think of it as these are two characters with a huge amount of power, but one is a Frankenstein’s monster who is driven by nothing but hatred and violence.”

“Then there’s Bran, who uses his powers for good. I want to find out why the Night King is so obsessed with destroying mankind. We’ll see whether they have any kind of explanations in the next season. Hopefully we’ll find out cool stuff about both of those characters.”

Game of Thrones finale script reveals Drogon didn’t burn the Iron Throne on purpose

Game of Thrones finale script reveals Drogon didn't burn the Iron Throne on purpose

Game of Thrones series finale was hated by the fandom to a degree where it triggered millions of people into signing a petition to remake the final season of the show. However, if there was one thing that everybody liked, it was Drogon burning the Iron Throne. Most of the fandom agreed that this was a great choice, but now it seems as though that might not have been intentional like we had thought. Read on!

Now, as you might know, Emmy nominated scripts are made available online, and with the series finale of Game of Thrones, titled “The Iron Throne” getting nominated, the script followed soon. What we saw in the show was Drogon burning the throne down, and the general interpretation was that Drogon was mad at the throne for being the real reason behind Daenerys’ death, and that Drogon wanted to break the wheel like his mother always wanted. However, the script has a different version of how it went down:

“Drogon wants to burn the world, but he will not kill Jon. He breathes fire on the back wall, blasting down what remains of the great red blocks of stone. We look over Jon’s shoulder as the fire sweeps toward the throne – not the target of Drogon’s wrath, just a dumb bystander caught up in the conflagration.”

Well, that’s awkward. The very reason why everybody liked the melting was that they assumed it was because Drogon was smart enough to see that it was the throne’s fault. Now, this looks like just another reason for the fans to hate the showrunners and writers/directors of the finale, David Benioff and Dan Weiss. In the meantime, the PDF of the script has been locked down on the Emmy website, requiring a login to be able to access.

What do you guys think about this reason? Would you have preferred it to be intentional? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa celebrated his 40th birthday with a 168-pound Guinness and whiskey cake

If there’s one Game of Thrones star that knows how to party, it’s Jason Momoa. The actor, who played the role of Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, recently celebrated his 40th birthday at a surprise party thrown for him by his friends. Apparently, the party involved a giant 168-pound cake made out of Guinness and whiskey! Read on.

We had reported about the mini-reunion that Momoa had with his Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke, who was present at the party. Now, further details have been revealed, and it looks like the cake was the star of the party, reports INSIDER.

Made by UK-based baker Aggy Dadan of Edible By Aggy, the cake was infused with Guinness and whiskey and took a week to make. It was served on a giant sugar surfboard, with a wave on one side and a mountain on the other, two things Momoa is known to love. It also featured mini-figurines of Momoa, shown climbing the mountain and playing the guitar while surfing on the wave. Check out the pictures:

Dagan said:

“I was thinking, what could be better than putting the whole thing on a sugar surfboard. We incorporated a little mini pint of Guinness, because he loves Guinness, and a little box of donuts for his best friend [Mada Abdelhamid], who calls himself ‘Donut Man.’

Jason is a big family man, so [Abdelhamid] wanted to include things that represented that in the cake. They left it pretty much up to me, which I love. I love when people let me use my creativity.”

Dagan had previously made a 3/4 scale Aquaman bust cake for Momoa for the premiere of the film, and Momoa seems to have stuck with her.
