Ian McShane’s ‘Game of Thrones’ Mystery Character Could Resurrect a Dead Favorite

16 November 2015 5:53 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ian McShane is staying tight-lipped about who he’s playing in “Game of Thrones” season six, but according to a new report, his role will be instrumental in the return of another character.

“I am responsible for bringing somebody back that you think you’re never going to see again. I’ll leave it at that,” McShane reportedly told Pop Goes the News at the Los Cabos International Film Festival.

The “Deadwood” star also confirmed that his role is a pivotal character with little screen time, telling Pgtn that his appearance is “a one-off episode … That’s why I did it. But I can’t reveal anything, otherwise I will never work again.”

Since many fans (and “Game of Thrones” cast members) believe we’ll be seeing Kit Harington’s Jon Snow resurrected in some way, it’s debatable whether McShane would refer to him as someone you think you »

‘Game of Thrones’ Casts Pilou Asbæk as Euron Greyjoy for Season 6

2 September 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” has cast Danish actor Pilou Asbæk as Euron Greyjoy in season six, Variety has confirmed.

Euron Greyjoy is the uncle of Theon (Alfie Allen) and Yara (Gemma Whelan) and the younger brother of Balon Greyjoy (Patrick Malahide), Lord of the Iron Islands. In George R. R. Martin’s novels, Euron is a skilled warrior who captains a ship called the Silence, and is known for his tempestuous and unpredictable moods. If season six of “Thrones” follows the Greyjoy storyline from Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels, Asbæk’s Euron is likely to play a pivotal role in the series going forward.

Other newcomers for season six of the fantasy epic include Ian McShane in an unspecified role, and Max von Sydow, who will take over the role of Bran Stark’s (Isaac Hempstead Wright) mentor, the mysterious Three-Eyed Raven, when the show »

'Game of Thrones' Season 6: Is Myrcella Still Alive? New Photos Suggest Maybe

24 August 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

One of the few deaths we were almost certain about in the "Game of Thrones" Season 5 finale was Myrcella Lannister Baratheon. She was poisoned by the Sand Snakes before leaving on a ship with her daddy Jaime Lannister, bound for King's Landing. We already had a preview of how that poison works, and it looked like she was a revenge killing to keep the war going between Dorne and the Lannisters. It seemed like a strong plot twist -- how will Cersei handle the news of her daughter's death, as delivered by her brother-lover right after her public shaming?

But could Myrcella still be alive, having been saved somehow, and she'll appear in Season 6? Maybe.

Nell Tiger Free (who plays Myrcella), Dean-Charles Chapman (Tommen Baratheon) and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) recently shared photos together, showing they were all in the same area. Were they just hanging out away from set with no one filming? »

Max Von Sydow Is Joining Game Of Thrones

3 August 2015 4:59 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Given the rate at which author George R.R. Martin (and the producers of the show based on his books) likes to off characters, it’s only right that Game Of Thrones keeps adding to its ranks, lest the show end up as Peter Dinklage talking to a tree. Following on from Ian McShane’s casting in a mysterious role, Entertainment Weekly brings word that venerable thesping type Max von Sydow is also headed for Westeros.Unlike his fellow new arrival, Sydow’s role is not so shrouded in secrecy. We’ll drop a Spoiler Alert here in case you don’t want to know, but he’s already at work as the character known for now as the Three-Eyed Raven, last glimpsed at the end of Season Four, and who will mentor Isaac Hempstead Wright’s Bran Stark in the ways of the warg. With the show diverting further from the books and, »

‘Game of Thrones’ Casts Max von Sydow as Three-Eyed Raven for Season 6

3 August 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Three-Eyed Raven is getting a makeover in season six of “Game of Thrones” — Variety has confirmed that Max von Sydow will take over the role, which was originated by Struan Rodger in the season four finale of the HBO drama.

The enigmatic character is responsible for teaching Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) about his supernatural gifts, including his ability to transfer himself into the body of other creatures through the process of “warging.” Although Bran and his allies were absent throughout season five, they are confirmed to be making a return in the new season, which has commenced filming in Europe.

While von Sydow is not expected to have much screen time in season six, he will reportedly play a major role in the events of the new season. The same has been said of fellow new cast member Ian McShane, who is playing an undisclosed role.

'Game of Thrones': Max von Sydow Cast as Three-Eyed Raven

3 August 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Game of Thrones is bringing in the big gun for Bran's (Isaac Hempstead Wright) upcoming storyline. Veteran actor Max von Sydow has joined the HBO hit as the mysterious Three-Eyed Raven, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The character was last seen in the season four finale, when Bran and his pals met the mysterious and powerful character, played in that episode by Struan Rodger. That episode set up the Three Eyed Raven as a tutor to Bran, who has developed Warg powers, giving him the ability to inhabit the bodies of animals. Bran's storyline was sidelined for season five, with fans speculating

Winter is coming — and so is the end of Game of Thrones.

“I think seven seasons and out has never been the conversation; the question is how much beyond the seventh season are we going to do,” Michael Lombardo, President of HBO Programming told reporters Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills.

Game of Thrones: 8 (Mostly) Plausible Ways Jon Snow Can Be in Season 6

28 July 2015 10:39 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Like Ned Stark’s bastard himself, when it comes to whether Jon Snow will be in Game of Thrones‘ sixth season, we know nothing.

Of course, that doesn’t stop us from having a few theories.

And we’re not talking about the “Kit Harington hasn’t cut his hair!” and “Kit Harington spotted in Belfast airport!” conjecture that has made the rounds in the past few weeks.

True Detective Recap: Getting the Banned Back Together

Let’s play a little game: Which True Detective character is going to bite it first?

Forgive me if that seems a bit morbid — even for a show that this week introduced us to a murder shack liberally painted with “arterial spray” (thanks, Ani) — but at least one of these people has to die before the rapidly approaching end of the season, right? (After all, not everyone can have Rust Cohle’s Carcosa-surviving unkillability — though the invisible bubble that protected Ray, Ani and Paul from all the bullets last episode certainly seems to come close.)

GoT's Isaac Hempstead Wright Confirms Bran's Season 6 Return

14 July 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Though the children of Ned Stark have had a particularly rough go as of late, here’s some news that would make Eddard proud: Bran will definitely be in the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, portrayer Isaac Hempstead Wright says.

In an interview with the Irish Examiner, Wright confirmed what most fans had guessed: After sitting out Season 5, his character will be back in play for Season 6.

“I can’t say a lot, but I am back in this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran,” he said, adding that the series begins shooting again at the end of July. »

Isaac Hempstead Wright Returning for Game Of Thrones Season 6

14 July 2015 11:34 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Not that this is surprising news, but you never know what to expect with Game of Thrones so, just to be clear: Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) will be back for Season 6. The show reached the end of Bran’s story in George R. R. Martin’s book series (so far) at the end of Season 4, and left him way up in the north practicing his warg-ing abilities, and moonlighting as the admin of weirwood.net (that is to say … he’s able to see through the Weirwood trees, which will play a big role coming up regarding Bran’s “visions”). [caption id="attachment_339069" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via HBO[/caption] Beyond that little tidbit, though, nothing else can be said about where the show might take Bran’s story next, since showrunners Dan Weiss and D.B. Benioff are now officially going off course from the books (since the next book hasn’t been published. »

‘Game of Thrones’ Star Isaac Hempstead-Wright Returning for Season 6

14 July 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At least one fan favorite character is returning to “Game of Thrones.”

Isaac Hempstead-Wright, whose Bran Stark sat last season out, confirmed that he would be returning to the hugely popular HBO series for season 6.

“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,” the actor told the Irish Examiner.

Bran Stark, who is one of the youngest of the children of Ned Stark (Sean Bean) and Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley), has not been seen in the series since the end of season four. Most of the characters thought he was dead, although viewers knew that he was actually holed up away from the main action and is presumably developing his warging abilities (i.e. the power to enter the mind of an animal and control its actions).

Bran Stark Is Back, Y'all! Isaac Hempstead Wright Returning for Game of Thrones Season 6

14 July 2015 8:02 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

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.

Bran Stark is coming back for Game of Thrones season 6

14 July 2015 1:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Isaac Hempstead Wright’s Bran Stark was benched on Game of Thrones for all of season five, the actor has confirmed to the Irish Examiner that he’s officially coming back next season.

Wright said, “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.”

The reason for the character’s absence last season was because his storyline on the show had already caught up to where George R.R. Martin had left off in his A Song of Ice and Fire series.

Kristian Nairn and Ellie Kendrick, who play Hodor and Meera Reed on Game of Thrones, were also nowhere to be found last season. There is no official word on whether or not they’ll be back, but their return seems very likely.
