Game of Thrones' finale had us all left with our mouth open in utter bewilderment, and the main reason behind it has to be that Bran Stark wins the Iron Throne, a real left-field choice. It was so freaking out of the box that even the actor who plays him, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, literally could not grasp what was happening when he received that final script.
He told Entertainment Weekly that he thought he was being pranked upon. “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 said. “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 sh*t, it’s actually real?’”
Hempstead-Wright is somehow satisfied with the ending, though part of him would have chosen Bran to die a cool death in the last episode. “I’m happy,” he told EW. “Though I kind of did want to die and get in one good death scene with an exploding head or something.”
For what it's worth, Hempstead-Wright also believes that Bran "Three-Eyed Raven" Stark will be a good ruler because of the Three-Eyed Raven's knowledge of everything happening in the past and future.
“I think he’ll be a really good king, actually,” the actor said. “Perhaps there will be something missing in having real emotive leader, which is a useful quality in a king or queen as well. At the same time, you can’t really argue with Bran. He’s like, ‘No, I know everything.’”
Well, we cannot say that we deny what Issac says, as Bran will surely be a good king but somehow throughout the years has anyone even got the slightest clue that the crippled would be the ruler of the seven kingdoms someday. Well, what’s unpredictability even other than this!
