bran and the night king
Isaac Hempstead Wright is casting doubt on the Game of Thrones fan concept about Bran and the Night King being one and the equal. This is the second one time that the Brandon Stark/Three-Eye Raven actor has weighed in on the idea because the White Walker leader breached The Wall inside the dramatic finale to Game of Thrones season 7.
The final time he become moved to comment, Wright deemed the concept “a chunk a ways-fetched.” In reaction to lovers that accept as true with the characters appearance similar, Wright jokingly asked, “I don’t look that just like the Night King, do I?” Since he made those comments, lovers have claimed that a Stark sigil may be seen inside the Night King’s very last scene of season 7, including but greater gas to this fandom-eating principle.
And now, with the dust settling on the season 7 finale and the long gap between episodes stretching ahead, Wright has been asked again about the idea that Bran and the Night King could be the same person. This time, in an interview with Vulture, Wright offered his alternate take on how the Three-Eyed Raven and the Night King could connect:
“I think it’s less that they’re the equal individual and extra that they’re of the ancient beings of Westeros. The Three-Eyed Raven has been around for God knows how lengthy, and White Walkers had been pronounced considering the fact that the start of time. As we’ve visible, they were created with the aid of the Children of the Forest, so we are able to’t get a lot more ancient than that.”
Wright appears to agree with that it’s much less approximately Bran and the Night King having the equal mind (just like the Narrator and Tyler Derden in Fight Club) and extra about the Night King and the Three-Eyed Raven being historic enemies who’ve been battling since ancient instances (like Dracula and Van Helsing, whose rivalry spans throughout records).
Wright brought his own conventional horror contrast in a while inside the interview: “Perhaps we are able to think of it as those are two characters with a massive amount of strength, but one is a Frankenstein’s monster who’s pushed by nothing however hatred and violence. Then there’s Bran, who makes use of his powers for proper.” This is a feasible alternative to the Bran-is-the-Night-King idea, however it does lack a chunk of its some distance-out, wacky appeal.
Of course, fans can’t rule out the opportunity that Wright is beneath an NDA and now not allowed to reveal what he in reality is aware of/believes approximately his person’s future. All bets are off until the show returns and wraps up all its story threads with conclusive solutions.
