Everybody now knows that “Game of Thrones” season 7 will be a shorter one but aside from fears from the White Walkers, actor Isaac Hempstead Wright is more concerned about the cold winter season that they are about to face while filming.
The 17-year old actor who plays Bran Stark was seen North of The Wall in the last season as he was escaping the Knight King and his army of the undead. He was saved by his uncle Benjen Stark and is trying to move south to be with his cousin Jon Snow.
Wright expressed concern since they would be filming in Iceland where winter is at its height as compared to the artificial snow and winter effects on the set in Belfast.
Wright told IGN that the delay on the filming of season 7 will surely be a challenge not only for the crew but also for the actors themselves as they will have to stay warm throughout the duration of the shoot. But aside from the cold winter, they are about to face, Wright is saddened by the fact that the show is set to end soon.
“It’s kind of like, you don’t really want it to end,” Wright said. “We really are like a family. For many of us, it’s been seven years of our lives that we’ve been doing this. Every year it’s become like clockwork and a regular part of our existences, so to think that it’s all going to end I think there will be many an existential crisis for most of us.”
Wright stated that right now they are just enjoying the company of everyone as they near the last day of shooting for the hit series. He hopes that people would appreciate all the hard work they have put into making the series for the last seven years.
Wright hints that fans and viewers will be in for more action as season 7 will see the fall of The Wall as Castle Black will be invaded by the White Walkers. It will also see how Jon Snow will know of his true parents and his rightful claim to the Iron Throne.
