There are two new interesting interviews promoting Game of Thrones season 6 that turned up online yesterday. They feature Isaac Hempstead Wright and Ellie Kendrick in the first video, and Maisie Williams and Tom Wlaschiha in the second. The interviews include the actors sharing their thoughts on where their characters are currently with some intriguing teases for the season to come.
In the first, Kendrick and Hempstead Wright discuss returning to the set after taking a year off. Isaac talks about Bran’s developing powers being trained “like Luke Skywalker,” while Ellie talks more about the “tricky situation” Meera finds herself in, in season 6.
Williams and Wlaschiha avoid confirming any plot specifics, but Maisie notes that, “This season Arya get really broken. She goes through a really really difficult process and she’s totally stripped back.” She adds that, “This time it’s a lot more physical,” as well.
“We’ve never seen her come this close to giving up,” Williams says.
Wlaschiha is cagey about Jaqen H’ghar’s intentions. When questioned, he says he’s “Not sure I’m a fatherly figure,” and suggests, “Maybe Jaqen has a secret agenda of his own. He might pursue his own goals.”
