GAME of Thrones actor Isaac Hempstead Wright thought Bran winning the throne was a “joke script”.
Fans called the ending an “utter let down” and now the actor, 20, says he understands their disappointment because he didn’t believe it himself when he first read the fantasy epic’s finale.

He said: “I genuinely thought it was a joke script and that [showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss] sent to everyone a script with their own character ends up on the Iron Throne. ‘Yeah, good one guys.
“‘Oh s**t, it’s actually real?’”
Fans were not happy that Bran Stark, aka the Three-Eyed Raven, had ‘won’ the series by becoming ruler of Westeros and the Seven Kingdoms instead of show favourites Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Sansa Stark or Tyrion Lannister.
But Isaac says it would be impossible to finish a series like Game of Thrones without “p***ing some people off”.
He added: “Not everyone will be happy.

“It’s so difficult to finish a series as popular as this without pissing some people off.
“I don’t think anybody will think it’s predictable and that’s as much as you can hope for. People are going to be angry. There’s going to be a lot of broken hearts. It’s ‘bittersweet,’ exactly as George R.R. Martin intended.
“It’s a fitting conclusion to this epic saga.”Although some fans may not be happy with the final decision, Isaac believes his character will make a “really good king”, because his vast knowledge as the Three-Eyed Raven will allow him to make fair decisions.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, he said: “I’m happy. Though I kind of did want to die and get in one good death scene with an exploding head or something.”“I think he’ll be a really good king actually.
“Perhaps there will be something missing in having real emotive leader, which is a useful quality in a king or queen as well. At the same time, you can’t really argue with Bran. He’s like, ‘No, I know everything.’”
