Isaac Hempstead Wright on the delayed start of Game of Thrones S7 shooting and the end of the show

isaac2

In a quieter summer than usual, in terms of Game of Thrones news, Bran actor Isaac Hempstead Wright addresses the very reason for the dearth of production reports – the shift of filming to a later date – and how he feels about the change in this IGN piece:

It feels weird, starting so much later, because usually by now we’ve been in Belfast for a couple of weeks [filming] and we’re ready to come home, but what’s slightly terrifying is the prospect that we’re filming over winter now. It’s going to be even colder.

At the same time, with the end of the show in sight (though not for two more years, of course), Isaac also commented on the prospect of a world without Game of Thrones on his work schedule:

It’s kind of like, you don’t really want it to end. We really are like a family. For many of us, it’s been seven years of our lives that we’ve been doing this. Every year it’s become like clockwork and a regular part of our existences, so to think that it’s all going to end I think there will be many an existential crisis for most of us.

He also told the reporter he hasn’t received the scripts yet. Okay, we just have to hang in there for a bit longer and stay patient while we mentally adapt to the new schedule. Don’t forget that we already know several interesting pieces of info concerning the coming season of Thrones which we reported on earlier.

    1. I’ve just remembered the existential crisis I had when I finished reading the 15 books Wheel of Time series. I’ll go through the same with GOT/ASOIAF soon :'(
      (ok maybe not too soon with ASOIAF)

    5. Dee Stark,

      Want to watch the vikings badly but sky uk only has series 2 for some strange reason!!!!! I’d recommend Ray Donovan to anyone it is maybe my second favourite show behind GOT!!

      On a happier note the English premier league starts this weekend my team r champions and I’ve got our first forey into the champions league to keep me occupied in our long wait for season 7

    6. For GOT fans i highly recommend watching:
      -Vikings
      -The Tudors
      – Last Kingdom
      – Marco Polo

      Marco Polo is my latest discover, amazing show, and many directors we know from GOT, are actually directing the episodes.

      And i just started to reread Clash of the Kings….

    7. If I keep reading at the rate I am I’m going to run out of books until GOT returns. It’s only August so we have a YEAR of waiting. I’m really hoping that we get lots of news between now and then. Winter is coming, the nights are getting cooler and normally I start after the holidays rewatching the seasons, but if I do it this year I’ll be into spring with no GOT on the horizon…ugh…long, long winter.

    9. Valerian Armor,

      For me it’s quite the opposite i think it’s got better after season 1. I just watched season 1 of mr robot and it’s good but it’s know where near as good as Ray Donovan

      Valerian Armor,

      I bought the book American Gods… should I watch first or read first?

      Definitely read it! And don’t race through it. There is so much more to it than the baseline story of Shadow. Neil Gaiman is immensely knowledgeable about world mythology and folklore, and if those subjects interest you in the slightest, you may find yourself doing what I did: breaking away from the book frequently to research mythological characters who weren’t immediately familiar to me.

      It is beautifully, beautifully written – my favorite novel of the millennium so far. Luxuriate and enjoy!

    11. It’s so hot and humid here in the Northeast US right now that if Isaac were here, he’d be smiling at the prospect of working in some cold country quite soon.

      You actually finished that series? I gave up on that series over 10 years ago. The author was terrible about reintroducing characters, places, etc.: I had zero idea who any of the characters or places were while trying to slog through the last book that I tried to read.

      And, as you note, the book is really well written and tells it’s story wonderfully. Gaiman is excellent at developing characters and creating stories from people trying to reconcile their prior conceptions about “reality” with the fantastic.

      Gaiman has also penned a couple of excellent Doctor Who episodes. “The Doctor’s Wife” in particular is one of the best stories in the 50+ year history of the show. So, read “American Gods” and watch “The Doctor’s Wife.”

      It’s like a walking through a lockroom after the showers have been running but where they’ve left the furnace heat on maximum anyway….

    13. Firannion,

      thank you for the response. I will read it before I watch!!! I heard it was complex in terms of mythology. I think I will be doing the same as you, google will be with me while I read hahaha
      I just finished a book on norse mythology, so I definitely do love that stuff

    14. I recommend everyone to watch Stranger Things (Netflix), one of the best things I’ve seen this year – if not THE best…
