Following the release of a picture which gave a first look at Bran Stark on “Game of Thrones” season 6, details of his role in the upcoming season have now emerged. It’s the actor himself, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, who dishes on his character’s bigger and crucial role in the next installment.

After being sidelined in the whole fifth season, he’s back with his most exciting storyline yet. He shares to EW about his reaction when reading the season 6 script, “Oh! That’s the best scene I’ve ever done! … Oh! That scene is even better!”

As for how much he’s changed after the psychic training with the Three-Eyed Raven (Max von Sydow), he says, “Previously Bran’s seen tiny glimpses of future or past but never has he been very much in control in the situation. Now we’re given looks into very important events in the past, present and future of this world and Bran is beginning to piece them together like a detective, almost as if he’s watching the show. Equally, he’s now discovering how crucial he could be in the Great War. It’s quite ‘Inception’-y.”

As Hempstead-Wright reveals his “Inception”-like storytelling, speculations arise that Bran may not be leaving the cave despite the previously released picture which showed him riding a horse outside the cave. Many suggest that the scene teased in the photo could be part of dream-like sequence.

“Thrones” will return with the new season in spring 2016.
