At this point, it may not be until “Game of Thrones” season 5 premieres when we actually figure out for a change whether or not Bran Stark will be a part of the show.
First, it appeared like Isaac Hempstead-Wright would not be appearing, as Kristian Nairn confirmed in an interview that we for sure would not be seeing any of Hodor. Meanwhile, a later interview with Isaac seemed to contradict that, as he talked about doing work for the show.
Now, we’re back in the realm of being confused, given that the actor spoke about filming to Metro as though he was not a part of it at all:
“They’re shooting season 5 at the moment … I haven’t got anything in the pipeline at the moment . It’s really sort of school at the moment. I’m focusing on that.”
Do we imagine that we are going to see Bran again at some point? Of course! The cliffhanger with the Children cannot be forgotten, and the miserable part of it right now is that one way or another, the show set up something very cool without being able to pay it off for an incredibly long time. With “The Children” even being the name of this past episode, you would hope to see a continuation.
If we do end up seeing Bran, we imagine that it will be some sort of dream sequence featuring either the Three-Eyed Raven or something else guiding his path to the future. The problem is that the show is mostly caught up with the books when it comes to his story, so there is not that much more story that they have to tell for now.
