As Game of Thrones films for Season 8, there are raging questions that burn inside us, and many of them are about the now Three-eyed Raven, Bran Stark. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Issac Hempstead Wright, who plays Bran Stark, talked about all things Game of Thrones, including the end of it. Read on!
First off, he talked about the lesser episode count for the final two seasons, and how it was the better option :
“It’s so critical that they didn’t decide to just stretch this out for another ten episodes to make more money from it. The people making Game of Thrones are acutely aware of how they want this story to go. It’s not like they don’t have a big plan and need to bide their time with a few extra episodes. They know exactly how they want this to end. I think even from season five, they knew where the story was going. Therefore, we were able to really concentrate on the storyline far more than we had in previous seasons.”
He also spoke about the criticisms the show faced for not having the travel times in sync :
“Naturally, when anything is coming toward its finale, especially something as consistently brilliant as Game of Thrones, naturally people are concerned about whether we can do this justice: “Are they going to fuck this up at the last minute?” Obviously, people will hold us to a higher standard: “That didn’t make sense!” Definitely more than other seasons.”
“We step up so much now that it’s easier to find something that contradicts what was done earlier, seven seasons in. It’s fair enough that people are very antsy and concentrated on us making season seven absolutely perfect. Perhaps some things get read into too much. I find people getting obsessed with some little details that aren’t really relevant at all.”
“I suppose Game of Thrones is its own worst enemy, then, because there are moments where these tiny details reveal so much about the plot and the future. But in general, I don’t think there were any glaring plot holes. I think it was a pretty incredible season.”
Speaking of the ending of the show, Issac said :
“When it actually finishes, it’s going to hit hard. We won’t experience it for a while, because we still have a lot of filming to do, and then there will be the whole whirlwind of the press, which will happen for a long time. I think it will be when we get to this time in 2019, when we’re usually expecting the phone call organizing flights for the next season, that it will be very sad and it will be very real: This doesn’t exist anymore.”
“That’s going to be an interesting transitional period. There will be so many glamorous [events] and all of these fireworks as we celebrate the ending of the show — and then all of the sudden, it will be nothing. And it will be sad.”
