First Photo: Bran Stark in ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6

While HBO has been happily feeding the frenzy over the fate of Kit Harington’s Jon Snow in “Game of Thrones,” it has offered photographic proof that another character will be back on the series.

An image released by Entertainment Weekly gives a glimpse of Isaac Hempstead-Wright returning to his role as Bran Stark, the paralyzed young son of Ned and Catelyn Stark who has the ability to transport himself into animals’ minds and control them.

The character was vacant from season five and was last seen in the season four finale after he met the mysterious Three-Eyed Raven (then played by Struan Rodger and a part that will be assumed by Max von Sydow in the upcoming season). As expected, given the fact that the actor is only 16, Bran looks much more grown up than the last time we saw him.

Hempstead-Wright confirmed his return to the HBO series earlier this year, telling the Irish Examiner “I am back this season and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran … he has some interesting visions.”
