‘Game of Thrones’ Star Reveals Scene Cut From Season Finale
No “Game of Thrones” character changed as much from Season 6 to 7 as Isaac Hempstead Wright’s Bran Stark. No longer struggling with the loss of the use of his legs or adjusting to his newfound mystical powers, Bran has embraced being the all-seeing, all-knowing Three-Eyed Raven — a job that leaves him pretty disinterested in what’s going on in his friends’ and family’s personal lives.
Wright spoke with Variety about Bran’s attitude, his revelation regarding Jon Snow’s parents, and the scene that was cut from Sunday’s season 7 finale.
The scene with Bran and Sam was weirdly touching. What was it like filming that?
It was really fun. One of the most annoying things was that it was so hot in that studio. But aside from that, once we mopped up all the sweat, it was a really, really touching, really cool scene. And I think it was cool for both of them because they’re two of these characters in “Game of Thrones” whose weapons really are their wits. And the way they do battle is through knowledge. So I think it was great to see those two together — especially since the last time we saw them together, they were headed in opposite directions. Sam was heading south and Bran was heading north.
