Sure, we’re all excited about the upcoming season of “Game of Thrones” (GoT), what with news about the filming locations, new cast, and the possible secrets the future storyline might hold. In fact, the George R.R. Martin and the existing cast members have gushed about how excited they were about the upcoming Season 5. They forgot to stress one (or rather, 2) very important points though.
See, it was just revealed that GoT will have one less storyline to juggle in S5 – it’s the one with Hodor (played by Kristian Nairn) and Bran Stark (played by Isaac-Hempstead-Right).
Yup. No Hodor or Bran in the upcoming season. But don’t worry, it’s not because they both got booted out of the show. In an interview with “Yahoo”, Kristian Nairn explained that he got the year off:
We have a season off and we have a year’s hiatus, solely because I imagine our storyline is up to the end of the books… So, I get my year off now to do Rave of Thrones and gallivant all over the world.
It seems that he wasn’t joking because SlashFilm pointed out that there really isn’t much else to the Hodor and Bran duo. As in, there aren’t that many Hodor and Bran adventures on paper – unless if George R.R. Martin publishes his next “A Song of Ice and Fire” novel.
Aww. In any case, the “Rave of Thrones” is real, yo. Check out Kristian Nairn at his first show last week in Sydney:
Kinda makes you wish you were there, huh?
