Greetings all ye fair Lady and Gent Crows of the Great Wall of Internet Ice and Rock. A Man is elated that you are frequenting us even through the lonely off-season.
In the mood for more interviews? Good.
This round-up includes bits from Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Sophie Turner, and the Jolly Man himself…
In a bit of news we already assumed, Isaac Hempstead-Wright confirmed to the Irish Examiner that he will be reprising his role of Bran Stark in Season 6. In the interview, Isaac states,
“I can’t say a lot but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran. He has some interesting visions.”
In the interview, Isaac also says that he has not watched Season 5 yet due to scheduling conflicts (exams) but plans on binge watching it in the near future.
When asked about the return of you know who, this was his response:
“I don’t know (if he will come back). He’s said he’s not.”
“I wish he would because I love Kit and because the character’s so cool. Who knows? We start filming series six at the end of this month (July) so we’ll see.”
Next Up: Sophie
In an interview with Time, Sophie Turner touches on the escape from Winterfell and whether or not she and Theon survived the fall.
“It’s difficult to say. I haven’t even gotten the scripts to tell me whether or not they did. But it could just be another Hodor case. I could just turn into Bran and ride on someone’s back for awhile.”
If that is the case, Dark Horse will need to revise this.
In regards to fans questioning her character and defending Sansa, Sophie went on to say,
“I think people really, really respond to characters that are very strong willed and strong minded and have very strong opinions about things, and I think Sansa keeps everything so under wraps in order for her to survive. I think people often question her motives because she doesn’t do everything on the surface, and she doesn’t really show what she’s feeling. She kind of does her plotting within her head rather than outwardly doing.”
Check out the full interview for more, including her thoughts on if she can trust Littlefinger.
Last but not least:
GRRM took to his “Not a Blog” to discuss his absence at San Diego Comic Con.
“Staying home was the right decision. I just got back from Chicago and the Dead shows, and before that it was Europe, and it is hardly as if HBO needed me in San Diego to represent… not with so much of our cast on hand. I have so much work to do, I am way behind on everything, and I have a wedding to attend in Jersey in a few weeks, and worldcon after that… and if truth be told, San Diego has gotten overwhelming in recent years. There are always good times catching up with friends, and hanging with the cast, but it’s not as if I can walk the floor anymore and look for old comic books, the way I once did.”
Insert joke on George being invited to a wedding. “Way behind” doesn’t sound promising either for all of my Sullied counterparts. Let’s just hope this isn’t a true depiction:
A Man shall return later with some amusing site-related stuff. Until then, may there always be peace in your realm.
