Isaac Hempstead Wright, Game Of Thrones


We may not have Jon Snow on next season of Game of Thrones (or do we?), but we will see the return of another beloved character. Yep, we're talking about Bran Stark. He's back!

Actor Isaac Hempstead Wright told Irish Examiner he is back in the mix after not being seen during season five of the hit HBO drama.

"I can't say a lot, but I am back this season, and it's going to get particularly interesting with Bran," Wright said. "He has some interesting visions."

 Of course, Wright has grown up quite a bit during his hiatus from the show, so here's hoping Summer, his direwolf, recognizes him. Viewers last saw the character along with Kristian Nairn's Hodor in season four. Nairn teased they would likely be back after the season hiatus.

Wright said he hasn't seen season five because of schooling, and he doesn't know whether Kit Harington's Jon Snow is really dead, so stop asking. However, just like you, he'd like him to come back.

"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," Wright said.

If you thought just you and your friends were concerned about Jon Snow's whole deal, well take solace in knowing even the president of the United States wants to know what exactly is happening with the beloved character. Yes, Barack Obama has inquired about the Game of Thrones character's status. Director David Nutter confirmed President Obama asked whether the show had truly killed off Harington's character and Nutter confirmed that Jon Snow is f'real dead. At the 2015 Comic-Con panel, Nutter said the character is "deader than dead." Hmm…do we really believe that?
