A brief look into all WesterosCraft has done and what is to come. Voice by Isaac

Written by: · Comments: 00 · Category: Uncategorized

In the first few seasons of “Game of Thrones,” Bran Stark fell from a tower window, experienced Greensight visions, escaped a demented Theon in Winterfell and Warged into both his direwolf Summer and Hodor. But Season 4 of the series undoubtedly featured Bran’s most pivotal and exciting moments to date. (After all, what’s more epic than taking over Hodor’s body to break a guy’s neck?)

HuffPost Entertainment caught up with Isaac Hempstead-Wright, who’s had the last year off from “Game of Thrones” — yep, he’s officially not in Season 5. He told us about crawling in the mud to finally meet the Three-eyed Raven, what Season 4 moment was a major shift for Bran and what animal he’d Warg into in real life.

Last season, we got to see Bran in two fight scenes and he also got his first kill.
I’m slightly disappointed I didn’t get to do it myself because that’s one of the coolest parts. But it was a cool scene to be a part of and it was fun to see Kristian [Nairn] and Hodor really showing his mettle.

What’s it like to act with a character who only has one line?
It’s certainly something I don’t think I can say I’ve had experience with before “Game of Thrones,” nor ever since. I guess it’s been normal to have an actor who can only speak with one line.

Is Kristian chatty on set when you’re not filming?
Oh, my gosh, yeah. Me and Kristian have such a laugh together. I think it’s because I’m annoying him, I’m not quite sure which way it goes. We always have a good time on set. He has a very dry, witty sense of humor, which I find hysterical.

That first fight scene is also your second missed connection with Jon Snow.
Yeah! I know. It really does seem a bit of a shame that pretty much the last time we had a scene together, excluding one dream sequence, was way back in Season 1. For Bran, this was his one chance to see his family again, who’s been flung all around the corners of the Seven Kingdoms and he doesn’t. But that really is testament to the fact that this feeling deep within him about this weird mystical power is more important for him not to figure out what it is than to reunite with his family.

The scene in the finale when Bran finally meets The Children and the Three-eyed Raven is a great moment.
That was really cool. First of all because we weren’t outside and it wasn’t really cold. It was a really cool set because there were bones all over the ground, they had dry ice, and then they had this guy in a tree in the middle. It was like some really weird concert.

It’s such a major turning point for Bran when he finally meets the Three-eyed Raven. Do you think he trusts him?
It’s hard to tell, considering they only just met. But I think he kind of has to trust him now because he’s stuck in a cave with him and he’s spent a good few years being connected to him. The raven that Bran sees in his dreams is a kind of etherial embodiment of this guy. So this isn’t basically the first time he’s met him, he’s known what this is about for a while.

You also apparently won’t appear in Season 5 at all, right?
Yeah, no. I have had a break this season. Bran will be back in Season 6.

What’s it been like to have a year off?
It’s been bizarre, more so because I’ve spent my first full term at school, which has been quite a shock. I usually have my entire summer eaten up by shooting. But it’s been nice to have this year free because I’ve had some important exams at school.

All of the Stark kids have been experiencing big states of change over the last couple seasons. What moment do you see as Bran’s major shift?
I think the point at which he doesn’t go and see Jon is quite a milestone for Bran. That would’ve been the perfect opportunity to get back to some form of normality and be with family again. But he’s decided that it’s more important to follow this really bizarre magical power of his. I think that is probably one of the most pivotal moments in Bran’s story so far.

He’s one of the only character who has any magical abilities, too.
Yeah! The thing about “Game of Thrones” is it doesn’t pin too much of a focus on magic. It kind of paints it in the same way that mystical things are portrayed in our world, because you don’t walk about Westeros and see wizards with staffs or magical wands. All the characters don’t really believe in it. It’s this mysterious hidden vein to Westeros.

One of the best parts of Bran’s powers is that he’s a Warg. If you could enter the mind of any animal in real life, what would it be?
I’d Warg into some kind of bird because I’d love to be able to fly. Like an eagle.

Bran’s going to be able to fly eventually, too.
Yeah! Maybe Bran’s going to turn into an eagle. [Laughs]

“Game of Thrones: The Complete Fourth Season” is available now on Blu-ray with Digital Copy, DVD & Digital HD.

The Festival offers children the chance to learn about films by seeing and talking about them, and has drawn support from stars like Michael Sheen and Ralph Fiennes. In Canterbury’s Gulbenkian Theatre, the children were being shown “The Boxtrolls”, a new animated family film from Laika Studios, and afterwards they had the chance to talk about it with one of the movie’s stars, Isaac Hempstead-Wright.

Actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright, best known for his starring role in Game Of Thrones, was in Canterbury on Tuesday morning to talk to schoolchildren about his new film, his origins in acting, and Spongebob Squarepants.

The 15-year-old television star, who plays Bran Stark in the hit tv show, was showing a group of around 200 schoolchildren from across the district his new film, The Boxtrolls.

Taking questions from the kids after the film, Isaac, who lives in Faversham, talked about acting opposite Sir Ben Kingsley, how his Canterbury acting teacher told him to “just have fun” auditioning for Game Of Thrones, and how much he was paid to be in the film.

“I very much fell into acting by accident”, he told the children “I just went to a local drama group here in Canterbury, and Game of Thrones were doing what’s called an open casting call, which means anybody can go and have a try. And my drama teacher just told me to go up, and have a laugh, it’ll be a good experience to go and have a window into the world of showbusiness. And it just so happens, through a series of coincidences, that I happened to get the part.

“So, it was never really my intention, but I had a wonderful time doing it.

“The reason I did drama was because I loved the game “Bang!” I loved doing that!”

When a fan asked him about his acting heroes, Isaac paid tribute to Nick Frost, Simon Pegg and Richard Ayoade, who all co-starred with him in the film. He even listed Spongebob Squarepants as “one of my heroes”.

Talking about the film Isaac said it had been “fantastic” working alongside the likes of Sir Ben Kingsley and Elle Fanning.

“When I did a recording session with Sir Ben Kingsley, he would refuse to read any lines he hadn’t been sent in advance, because he had read the script so meticulously, and then there I was coming in not even knowing what lines we were doing! It showed quite a different style of line-learning.”

While Isaac spent most of the Q and A session talking about The Boxtrolls, he did acknowledge when a fan asked him, that Game Of Thrones was his favourite project to work on.

“Being a part of this tv show called Game Of Thrones, which none of you should watch because it is far too violent… for a teenage boy to be running around with swords and riding horses has been so cool. I would have paid them!”

Isaac has played Bran in all four seasons of Game Of Thrones shown so far, but one of his co-stars Kristian Nairn, who plays Hodor, revealed earlier this year that their storyline would not feature in season 5, giving them both a year off.

When a girl named Maddy from St Mary’s School in Chilham asked Isaac how much he had been paid for his work, the actor laughed, but said “I don’t think I can answer that!”

Most of the questions were about Isaac’s film The Box Trolls, an animated feature about a young boy (played by Isaac) living underneath a city, with a race of small trolls who live in boxes. It was being shown to the schoolchildren for free, as part of the first national Into Film Festival. The three-week-long event has had free film showings across the UK. This year’s festival reached well over 300,000 children, and drew the support of a range of actors, from Isaac Hempstead Wright, to more experienced actors like Ralph Fiennes and Michael Sheen.

The Into Film Festival is hosted by film and education charity Into Film, which enables children to learn through and about film. Schools and colleges can continue their film learning by setting up an Into Film club by visiting or calling 0207 288 4520.
