Game Of Thrones star Isaac Hempstead-Wright says that a lot of unresolved storylines will start to come together in the show’s new series.
Hempstead-Wright returns as noble teenage prophet Bran Stark in season six, having missed out on season five.
Speaking at NME Awards, the actor told Loaded: “You’ll see things in season six that have never quite made sense before – and now it will all start to tie up.
“Stories all start to come together to make sense. I know we say this every season, but this series sees everything get bigger and bigger and bigger.”
Hempstead-Wright admitted he was disappointed that Stark missed out on season five. His character returns after losing the use of both legs, having been thrown out of a window by Jamie Lannister when Stark discovered his incestuous relationship with Cersei Lannister.
“I don’t doubt I’m going to release a single one day”
The 16-year-old said: “It was a shame not being in season five, but it was the right time for me to take a year out.
“I hadn’t done any acting in that whole year out, so it was quite a shock to the system to go back on a freezing cold film set. Once I was back into it, it was great fun.”
Kent-based Hempstead-Wright added that, despite his Game Of Thrones success, he is determined to go to university.
“I always wanted to study physics,” he explained. “But now I’m not so sure. I really love music, and I’d maybe like to study music now.” Asked if that meant he could one day release a single, like his Game Of Thrones co-star Iwan Rheon, Hempstead-Wright replied: “Yeah, maybe. I don’t doubt you’ll see a single from me.”
As well as Game Of Thrones, Hempstead-Wright has starred in horror film The Awakening and Channel 4 show Boxtrolls.
Game Of Thrones returns for series six on April 24 on Sky Atlantic. See below for our video interview with Natalie Dormer on the show’s return.
