Isaac Hempstead Wright addresses theory that his Game Of Thrones character Bran Stark is Night King
Isaac Hempstead Wright during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday addressed a theory about his Game Of Thrones character Bran Stark.
Jimmy, 51, told the 20-year-old English actor that a lot of people believe that Bran is the ‘key to this whole thing’.
‘Do you think Bran is 100 percent good?,’ Jimmy asked Isaac.

‘I don’t know. I think he’s the Three-Eyed Raven who is definitely on the side of the living,’ Isaac replied.
‘Well, that’s interesting because a lot of people believe that Bran might be the Night King,’ Jimmy said.
‘Yeah, I’ve heard this many times,’ Isaac said. ‘I can neither confirm nor deny.’
‘I feel like you confirmed that he’s not. I mean, if he’s on the side of the living, unless the Night King is some kind of weird double agent,’ Jimmy said.

‘Who says the Night King is dead,’ Isaac said.
‘What?!,’ Jimmy said.
‘Help me, HBO!,’ exclaimed Isaac.

Isaac also said that his ‘intense stare’ on the show has been ‘aided by the fact that I’m completely blind when I’m on set. I don’t have my glasses and I don’t have contact lenses.’
He recalled shooting a scene during season seven with Sophie Turner, 23, who plays his sister Sansa Stark on the hit HBO show.
‘And she said, ”Isaac, your stare is like you’re staring into my soul” and I said, ”I can’t see you”,’ Isaac told Jimmy.

Isaac, who has been on Game Of Thrones since its premiere in 2011, also said he can make his eyes roll back, but revealed the show instead prefers to rely on special effects.
The eighth and final season of Game Of Thrones premiered on Sunday on HBO and the series will conclude May 19.
The HBO series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss is based on George R. R. Martin’s series of fantasy novels, A Song of Ice and Fire.
