Issac Hempstead Wright talks Game of Thrones fan theories, says some of them might be right

Game of Thrones Season 7 is running past the usual schedule this year, with premiere date set for July 16th, as it was recently announced. Season 6 ended with a lot of characters having massive cliffhangers in their storylines, and Bran Stark, was one of them. He is now supposed to be the Three-Eyed Raven, while having lost Hodor, and being left in the company of Meera Reed, while being crippled, and on the wrong side of The Wall (Man, the kid can’t catch a break, can he?) Issac Hempstead Wright, who plays the role of Bran Stark on the show, recently talked about various fan theories, in an interview. Read on!

There are way too many fan theories in the Game of Thrones fandom, and while some of them might have been ridiculous, some of them have stood the test of time to be eventually proved right. Now, with Bran Stark being recognized as a key character on the show, many a theories have sprung up around him. Issac Hempstead Wright recently took some time out to discuss some in an interview with the Huffington Post, while he was at the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience at Madison Square Garden. In his first response about fan theories, he said :

“God, I love it.”

So do we, Issac. So do we. He said that he had read about the theory about Hodor’s origin story. Talking about the same, he said :

“I remember reading when I got sent the script for Season 6, and it had Hodor’s death in it. I thought, ‘God, this is amazing. Let me Google this to see if anyone came up with a theory,’ and of course there was some guy on some forum somewhere who had come up with ‘hold the door,’ ‘hold the door.’ It was in a slightly different context, but he got it absolutely dead-on, so it’s like anything really could happen.”

Issac Hempstead Wright also said that the accuracy of the theories impressed him. When asked if the theories he has been reading now have managed to hold the same effect, or if they had lost their accuracy, Issac said :

“No, there are times you read it and go, ‘Holy shit! Yep, they’ve got it.'”

He also mentioned that as of now, he had no idea how the series will wrap up :

“Even though we’ve just shot Season 7, you have no idea how it’s gonna end or what’s gonna happen in Season 8, so I love going online and seeing what people are coming up with.”

He was questioned about three important fan theories, as well. First off, was the theory which says that Bran built the Wall, considering that he can have an effect on the past. Not to forget the fact that the Wall has been said to be built by a guy named Bran the Builder. When asked about this one, Issac said :

“Yeah, I read a lot of that. Sounds cool. I don’t know to be honest. Anything is a possibility with ‘Game of Thrones.'”

Another theory states that at one point, Bran will warg into a dragon. The basis for this theory comes from the fact that the Three-eyed Raven told him, “You’ll never walk again, but you will fly.”

“Yeah, yeah, yeah, that’s cool! That’d be up there on my list of things I’d like to be … dragon, number one.

You’ll have to watch and find out.”

Lastly, he was asked about the theory which suggested that Jon Snow has a twin, and it is none other than Meera Reed, Bran’s companion in his journey. He apparently has discussed this one with Ellie Kendrick, who plays Meera Reed on the show.

“I love this.

I’ve talked to Ellie about this, who plays Meera, and she was saying she thinks it’s more the show. Because she and Kit look quite similar, because in the books I don’t think [they do]. I love that idea because it does make sense because Howland Reed is that last guy.”

Indeed.

It is nice to know that the stars are reading up the obsessive, and at times, crazy stuff us fans put out there. What did you think about Issac Hempstead Wright’s take on these theories? Talk to us in the comments, below!

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.
