Isaac Hempstead-Wright, the actor who portrayed Bran Stark in Game of Thrones, admits that he thought producers gave him a fake script for the finale. “When I got to the [Dragonpit scene> in the last episode and they’re like, ‘What about Bran?’ I had to get up and pace around the room,” he tells Entertainment Weekly in a new interview. “I genuinely thought it was a joke script and that [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss> sent to everyone a script with their own character ends up on the Iron Throne. ‘Yeah, good one guys. Oh s**t, it’s actually real?’” Hempstead-Wright goes on to explain that its a relief that he can now talk about his character’s reign. “I just want to shout: ‘King motherf**ers!,’” he adds. “Though that’s probably not a wise plan, obviously.”
