8 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It’s hard out there for a Game of Thrones good guy — take it from cast members Liam Cunningham and Isaac Hempstead Wright.

Comic-con 2016 Exclusive Videos, Casting News, Scoop and More

The actors behind Davos Seawright and Bran Stark — two of the least villainous characters on the HBO hit — are surprised to have survived into Season 7, they told Michael Ausiello at TVLine’s Comic-Con studio presented by Zte.

Cunningham, in fact, joked that Thrones fans are so hard up for characters without blood on their hands that they often think of young Arya Stark as a role model — despite the »

Who Do the Game of Thrones Stars Want to See Sitting on the Iron Throne?

22 July 2016 6:55 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The cast of Game of Thrones may not have been able to offer any specific insight on its upcoming seventh season during their visit to Comic-Con International in San Diego, but they did have some wide ranging opinions about who will ultimately end up sitting on the Iron Throne. Rob McElhenny, the co-creator and star of Always Sunny In Philadelphia, served as the panel's moderator and posed a provocative question to the actors in attendance: "Who do you believe will win the Iron Throne? Who would you like to see on the Iron Throne?" Far and away the most popular response came from Kristian Nairn, »

‘Game of Thrones’ Cast and Creators Talk Season 7 Delay, Jon’s Parentage and Sansa’s Goals

22 July 2016 3:22 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss returned to Comic-Con on Friday to discuss Season 7 and the challenges of adapting George R. R. Martin’s books and surpassing what has been published so far.

“It’s still ultimately George’s imagination that gave us these characters, that gave us this world,” Benioff pointed out. “Hopefully we’re still living out the spirit of George’s imagination. George’s books will be very different in some respects; hopefully the series and the books will be very surprising to people who are reading or watching.”

The creators also addressed the late premiere for Season 7, which will see the show returning in summer instead of April, due to a delayed start date in filming. “Winter is here, and we’ve got to shoot in places with trees and wait for the leaves to turn,” Benioff noted. “We finish shooting in February,” which »

'Game of Thrones' Finale: Isaac Hempstead Wright Breaks Down Bran's Stark Realization

26 June 2016 4:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers through the season six finale of HBO's Game of Thrones.] "I'm the Three-Eyed Raven now. I have to be ready for this." Weeks after abusing his new powers and leading his friends to their brutal deaths at the hands of hungry zombies, Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) finally knows a thing or two about responsibility. As the most powerful green-seer still standing (if only in his visions), Bran is one of the last great resources when it comes to viewing ancient Westeros history…an ability he put to good use during the season

Why Tony Hale stopped watching 'Game of Thrones' after the very first episode

24 June 2016 5:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tony Hale stopped watching Game of Thrones after the very first episode, and I support his reason: he doesn't like seeing little kids get thrown out of windows. Appearing on a segment of The Wrap's "Wrapid Fire" series, the Veep star opened up about his aversion to the HBO fantasy series when host Stuart Brazell asked him what his favorite character was: "I don't watch Game of Thrones, ’cause they pushed a kid out the window in the first episode, and it freaked me out." Hale is of course talking about Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright), the then-10-year-old wall-climber who was unfortunate enough to stumble upon Jaime and Cersei's incestuous lovemaking session at Winterfell. Wonder if Tony knows he survived? In any event, the Arrested Development star is far from the only celeb to have opted out of the blockbuster series. Want names? Here's our roundup of GoT-ignorant »

Who Knew? Bran from Game of Thrones Is Super Smart - He Studies Particle Physics and Piano

20 June 2016 8:05 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Did you know that Game of Thrones star Isaac Hempstead Wright (a.k.a. Bran Stark) is more than just a pretty face on TV? The English actor, who used the time off from his character's absence from Thrones last season to concentrate on his school exams, has some rather advanced hobbies: particle physics and classical piano."I've gone through various interests, before physics it was neuroscience and how the brain works," Wright tells People of his off-screen interests. "Through that, I had a fantastic physics teacher at my school, he is a really smart guy and I would talk »

Bran from Game of Thrones Explains How Hodor Managed to Carry Him Everywhere (There Was a Trick!)

17 June 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It should come as no surprise to Game of Thrones fans to learn that the cast and crew regularly incorporate a bit of movie/TV-making magic during the production of their hit series. This is a show that involves dragons, White Walkers, and giants, after all. One of the sixth season's more impressive "tricks", however, does not involve any of the fantastical elements above, it involves a manmade dummy of cast member Isaac Hempstead Wright, aka Bran Stark. "They made a life-sized dummy of me," Wright tells People of how the production worked around Wright's growth spurt and his co-star Kristian Nairn's (Hodor! »

'Game Of Thrones' Producers On The Secret Behind [Spoiler]'s Shocking Return

30 May 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last night on HBO's "Game of Thrones," a character who hasn't been seen since the first season makes a surprising appearance. Benjen Stark (Joseph Mawle), Ned Stark's brother and former Night's Watch First Ranger, came in from the cold to save Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) and Meera (Ellie Kendrick) from the wights. Though he was presumed dead, Benjen explains he was stabbed by a White Walker and left to die, only to be revived with dragonglass by the Children of the Forest. Naturally, his appearance asks more questions than answers, leaving fans of the series to speculate about future events. EW sat down with "Game of Thrones" co-executive producer Bryan Cogman, who also wrote the episode, to expand on the secret behind his return, the reaction to Hodor's demise, the theatre troupe scenes, and more.

Game of Thrones Episode 6.6 Recap: Guess Who Is Back?

29 May 2016 11:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Episode 6 of Game of Thrones "Blood of My Blood", does not begin with Hodor miraculously alive. The gentle giant is dead, but did indeed hold the door long enough for Meera (Ellie Kendrick) and Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) to escape into the woods. Bran is still in the trance. He sees a montage of the events that led up to this point. The White Walkers are front and center, but we do get a glimpse of The Mad King and his stockpile of Wildfire in the vision. This has to be an important set up for the eventual showdown with The Night King. He wakes up as they are surrounded by the undead. Meera valiantly covers him; a masked rider swinging a mace of fire comes to their rescue. He pulls them unto his horse and they escape into the forest.

(Spoiler alert: Do not keep reading of you did not see this week’s episode of “Game of Thrones”) This week’s “Game of Thrones” started right where last week’s left off. Meera (Ellie Kendrick) is dragging Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) through the snow, but isn’t having much luck.

'Game of Thrones' Must-See Moment: Bran Stark's Worst Nightmare Continues

29 May 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

During "The Door," Hodor held the door, and hodored his final "Hodor." Or did he? Because it's a funny thing about people who die north of the Wall; they have a tendency of coming back. Not that HBO's Game of Thrones is about to pull the Jon Snow routine on the man, but if Kristian Nairn's character is ever going to appear on the show again, it could be imminent. Previews for the next episode, "Blood of My Blood," feature the undead army still in ice-cold pursuit of Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) and Meera Reed

'Game of Thrones' Throwback Photo: See Bran and Hodor Before They Held 'The Door'

26 May 2016 3:07 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: this story contains spoilers for episode five of the sixth season of HBO's Game of Thrones, "The Door."] Bran Stark has grown quite a bit over six seasons of Game of Thrones. Not just mentally and emotionally, too, but physically. Isaac Hempstead Wright began his journey through Westeros as a small child, and now, he towers over his co-stars — so much so that heading into the season, fans joked about the inevitable day Bran would be carrying beloved bodyguard Hodor on his own back, instead of the other way around. "I would not like to see

‘Game of Thrones': Hodor Actor Gets Amazing ‘Hold The Door’ Cake (Photos)

26 May 2016 12:12 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Game of Thrones” fans are still mourning Hodor’s death, but the man who played him is getting the biggest send-off of any departing actor on the series yet. On Instagram, Kristian Nairn posted a picture of a special cake made in the shape of the door Hodor infamously held open during his final moments on last Sunday’s episode. While Bran Stark has become as bitterly hated as Ramsay Bolton by fans for getting Hodor killed, Nairn has no hard feelings toward Bran actor Isaac Hempstead Wright. “Even after all he’s done,” Nairn joked, “still willing to give him some of my cake. »

Hodor and Bran Eat Cake Together, Are Still Thunder Buddies For Life

26 May 2016 9:40 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Is Bran responsible for giving Hodor a lifetime impairment that meant he could only communicate with the word "hodor"? Yes. Is he also responsible for Hodor's ultimate demise at the hands of White Walkers? Yes. But that doesn't mean the Game of Thrones actors who play Bran and Hodor can't be friends! Isaac Hempstead Wright and Kristian Nairn posted pictures via Twitter this week of themselves hanging out and eating cake. Sounds like maybe Bran doesn't feel so bad, after all. »

Watch: Game of Thrones Showrunners Apologize for Tragic Hodor Scene (But Not for the Reason You'd Expect)

25 May 2016 1:35 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The Game of Thrones showrunners have been killing off characters with impunity for years … and for once they are apologizing for it. David Benioff and D.B. Weiss sent in a video to Jimmy Kimmel Live! to say they were sorry for the tragic death of Hodor (Kristian Nairn) in Sunday's episode. But they aren't sorry for making fans all over the world mourn his loss. Rather, they're sorry for all the "hold the door" jokes that have inevitably sprung up after the fan favorite character died while holding a door. "We're sorry for all the idiots who for now on »

Game of Thrones' Kristian Nairn Talks Hodor's Fate, Achieving a Memorable Exit: 'Some of the Blood Was Real'

24 May 2016 2:32 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Game of Thrones‘ Bran might wanna write Kristian Nairn‘s mom a thank-you note: Nairn’s mama is directly responsible for the fact that her son was able to “hold the door!” for the Stark heir in Sunday’s terribly sad episode.

Back when Nairn first read for the part of Bran’s gentle, dim-witted attendant, “I hadn’t a clue what Game of Thrones was. My agent, he was like, ‘Just bear with me, Kristian. Just go and do this. There’s no words to this part, but I can assure you it’s worth doing,'” the actor tells TVLine. »
