'Game Of Thrones' star responds to Bran Stark 'Night King' theory

Arya ends Littlefinger in the season seven finale of Game of Thrones.

Isaac Hempstead Wright, who plays Bran Stark on the show, explained what happened during the scene that was cut out of the finale during an interview with Variety and we honestly think it would have been awesome to see.

Sansa's suspicions of Littlefinger's motives grew when Arya found a scroll that Sansa sent to Winterfell in Season 1, when their father Ned was taken prisoner at King's Landing.

It's clear after Sansa turns the tables on Littlefinger that she has had some sort of conversation with Bran, but we don't get to see it. Hempstead Wright was quick to denounce the theory that Bran and the Night King are the same person.

Now, we honestly didn't see this coming.

"So she goes to Bran, and Bran tells her everything she needs to know, and she's like, 'Oh, s***'".

Still, I feel like the writers played on old audience expectations of Sansa and Arya, reverting them backwards rather than pushing them forward in order to set up a much too complicated misdirect that, on its own, was a great moment - but, viewed in the context of the full season, really wasn't worth it.

That great "Game of Thrones" Season 7 finale plot twist nearly had an awkward extra scene. Sometimes, the fans are right on the money, as shown with the R + L = J reveal about Jon Snow's true parentage in the sixth season of Game of Thrones. He never hurt sansa", the Lady of Winterfell was having none of it, snarling: "Nah. just willingly sold her to the Boltons.

On how Bran might deliver the news of Jon's lineage to Jon and Daenerys: I'm hoping it'll be Samwell Tarly that breaks that news.

"We actually did a scene that clearly got cut, a short scene with Sansa where she knocks on Bran's door and says, 'I need your help, ' or something along those lines", Wright said of his character.

Bran is stabbed in the heart by Dragonglass and becomes the Night King.

Shortly after, Bran was touched by the Night King during a vision, which left a mark on his arm. "I want to find out why the Night King is so obsessed with destroying mankind".

Bran, aka the Three-Eyed Raven, was present at the trial of Littlefinger and had used his superpowers to expose the master schemer's past wrongdoings - but it all came as a surprise to viewers.

What has it been like this season to share scenes with actors who you know well but haven't acted with in years?

"But not for me, not for me, all I think about is karma and then the world moves on, but one thing's for sure". I think it suddenly occurred to her that she's got the best fact-checker in the universe, someone who's gonna look up the entire history of time. Furthermore, the final cut of the sequence did enough to indicate that it was Bran who revealed the truth to Sansa, rendering the removed scene unnecessary.
