Game of Thrones' Isaac Hempstead Wright Has a Poignant Theory About Bran Stark's Fate

From TIME - November 6, 2017

Isaac Hempstead Wright may be sworn to secrecy about the ending of Game of Thrones, but hes happy to speculate over the fate of his character Bran in the HBO dramas final season.

In a recent interview with TIME, the 18-year-old actor shared his favorite fan theory about how the time-traveling journey of the young Stark turned Three-Eyed Raven will come to a closeand no, its not that he turns out to be the Night King.

I like the idea that its actually a full circle and Bran becomes the Three-Eyed Raven that was in his dreams when he was younger, Wright said. I like the idea that its a deterministic, destiny driven thing where the old wise man went back in time as the Three-Eyed Raven to tell the young Bran to go north to the cave and its a paradox.

Based on what the old Three-Eyed Raven told Bran about time travelThe past is already written. The ink is drytime in the Thrones universe operates in a closed loop. This means that since Bran cannot change the past through time travel, he can only fulfill it. Bran has always been destined to grow old in order to be able to journey into the past and train his younger self.
