Not that I've seen many of them. It may be more likely that Bran will find out a way to warg into either the Night King or the now undead version of Viserion, something that Wright also has something to say about.

But isn't he the Three-Eyed Raven, you ask?

There have been many fan theories that have popped up over the course of Game of Thrones' seven seasons, from thoughts that either Cersei will become the Mad Queen or Daenerys will follow the path of her crazed father and earn that title to Tyrion being a Targaryen. There's another theory though, that the Night King was one of the first Starks, which is still something that's completely possible.


In a new interview, Isaac Hempstead Wright weighed in on a popular fan theory that's been making its rounds on social media. Hempstead Wright was quick to denounce the theory that Bran and the Night King are the same person.

"I don't know. I think it's a little bit far-fetched". But the whole Hodor thing, if I had read that as a theory, I would have said, 'Nah, this is insane.' So, who knows?Although I have to say, people are now comparing my face to the Night King and going, 'Yeah!

We are dead. Just like the Night King's army actually.


"That would be good, if he could warg into him". The Night King's forces are walking in the shape of a wolf's head - the Stark sigil.

Another interesting theory predicts that Bran will use his warging abilities to take over Viserion, helping to defeat the White Walkers in the Great War.

If giant spiders don't terrify you, then the fact Old Nan prefixed this story by detailing how the winter had been so brutal that not only did children die without ever seeing the sun, but also that, "Kings froze to death in their castles same as the shepherds in their huts".


"Here it is, at last, and we can't wait for everyone to see what we've done - everyone at Titan is in awe of this fantastic, powerful narrative and it's a privilege to be involved with such a prestigious, endlessly-creative universe".
