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!

George R. R. Martin promises to finish The Winds of Winter before writing for House of the Dragon

Game of Thrones might be over, but the franchise is alive and kicking. We still have at least two books left to come, and HBO has just announced he first prequel to the series, named House of the Dragon. The key factor is that both the books, and this show, require George R. R. Martin to write, and the prequel announcement was concerning fans about the fate of The Winds of Winter. George however has cleared those doubts by revealing he’ll be finishing The Winds of Winter before staring with the prequel. Read on!

George took to his Not a Blog to discuss the prequel, knowing fully well fans were concerned that it might lead to a further delay in The Winds of Winter coming out. George wrote, giving an insight into the development of the prequel:

“Ryan Condal has already done a considerable amount of writing on House of the Dragon, but a lot of work remains ahead of us. There’s a writer’s room to be assembled, episodes to be broken down and scripted, a cast and crew to be assembled, budgets and production details to be worked out. As yet, we don’t even know where we will be shooting… though I expect we will revisit at least some of the countries David & Dan used for GAME OF THRONES (Ireland, Iceland, Scotland, Croatia, Morocco, Malta, and Spain).”

He continued:

“I expect to be involved in all of this to some extent… and, who knows, if things work out, I may even be able to script a few episodes, as I did for the first four seasons of Game of Thrones.”

George made sure to give a little disclaimer, however:

“But… let me make this perfectly clear… I am not taking on any scripts until I have finished and delivered Winds of Winter. Winter is still coming, and Winds remains my priority, as much as I’d love to write episodes of House.”

He also discussed the sad fate of the other Game of Thrones prequel, The Long Night, which was cancelled, and noted that he didn’t think that the cancellation had anything to do with House of the Dragon, saying HBO had enough room for multiple Game of Thrones successor shows. He also expressed his sympathies towards Jane Goldman and others who worked on the show.

In any case, it looks like we might get The Winds of Winter in 2020, at least. What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Emilia Clarke poses with Jason Momoa and Kit Harington in the best birthday snap ever

Game of Thrones stars have the best get together, but the latest one is definitely our new favourite. The mother of dragons, Emilia Clarke turned 33 recently, and had a birthday bash fitting for a Khaleesi. The best part of the birthday for us fans is a picture that she posted a picture that is by all means iconic, featuring both her onscreen love interests from Game of Thrones. Read on!

Emilia took to Instagram to share moments from what seems like the best birthday party ever, but without a doubt, the crown jewel of the birthday snaps is Emilia’s picture with Jason Momoa, a.k.a. Khal Drogo, and Kit Harington, a.k.a. Jon Snow, calling it a “Momoa sandwich” in the hashtags. Check it out:

Well, if only we had gotten this moment on Game of Thrones! Jason Momoa left an adorable comment on the picture, saying “Happy birthday love. So stoked I got to see you 😍”. The picture comes right after Emilia and Jason’s recent reunion on The Graham Norton Show.

Emilia also posted more pictures from her birthday party. Take a look:

The Khaleesi sure knows how to party. There’s a good chance more Game of Thrones stars were present, but we do not have any pictures at the moment.
