Issac Hempstead Wright says Bran Stark is on a completely different level of existence now



Game of Thrones has had a tonne of amazing characters, and they have all developed very well over the years, but one character has completely transformed : Bran Stark. The little Stark boy that used to climb everywhere has become the Three-eyed Raven, and the transformation and everything attached to it has us speculating about his role in the end of the show. Now, in a recent interview, Issac Hempstead Wright talked about the motivations of the Three-eyed Raven, how it has been to portray the massive shift in the character. Read on!

Issac recently talked to Hello Giggles about his character, and how it changed in Season 7. Speaking of the shift, he said :

“It was interesting because it was a totally new challenge for me. It was almost like playing an entirely new character. That was interesting the way we kind of decided how we were going to sort of shape Bran, and make our mind up about exactly how he would interact with people.”

“That was an interesting challenge accent wise, to try and keep him interesting without him just becoming monotone and boring and just you know saying, “Yeah I know the answer to that,” and giving him a bit of mystery and interest.”

As you’ll remember, Bran finally reached back home in Season 7, and gave his longtime companion Meera Reed a rude goodbye, which has been a subject of debate. Speaking of this, Issac said :

“I think that is the real key indicator that Bran just doesn’t operate the way he did before, and it’s not because he is trying to be cold or nasty, it’s just that he can’t quite fathom human emotions very much anymore. Its like he is on such a different level of existence to the human race now, that he just can’t compute certain things like saying, “Oh thanks so much for everything you did for me, Meera,” because in Bran’s head everything is just predetermined that that was necessary so that “I can be here, so I can do this, so I can do whatever in the future.” And so I think that was a good sort of quite hard and sad way of saying Bran is the Three-Eyed Raven now, and it works differently.”

At the beginning of Season 7, Bran threw Littlefinger‘s own line at him, saying “Chaos is a ladder,” and we saw the terror in Baelish‘s eyes. Issac spoke about the scene :

“Oh, that was so much [fun] because that is one of my favorite lines in the show. And the way Aidan [Gillen] plays that originally was brilliant, it was chilling, so to be able to play it back to him…I think you know, Bran can become quite a creepy character there when he goes to do this. Probably one of the few people who can really disturb Petyr Baelish, because there is no way of escaping from what Bran knows.”

Bran is one of the very few characters to make it this far, and Issac apparently thought he was a goner after Hodor died, but life finds a way! What do you think will happen to Bran in Season 8? Talk to us in the comments down below!
