Game of Thrones actor Isaac Hempstead Wright has confirmed that he will return as Bran Stark in Season 6 of the HBO fantasy series
Bran was last seen in the Season 4 finale, after finally meeting the mysterious three-eyed raven. He was absent entirely from Season 5, but an interview with The Irish Examiner reveals that he’s returning to work on the series in July.
“I can’t say a lot but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran. He has some interesting visions,” Hempstead-Wright said.
Hempstead-Wright also weighed in the Jon Snow's death and the possibility of Kit Harrington returning in Season 6.
“I don’t know (if he will come back). He’s said he’s not,” he said. “I wish he would because I love Kit and because the character’s so cool. Who knows? We start filming series six at the end of this month (July) so we’ll see.”
Game of Thrones Season 6 will air on HBO in 2016.
