Isaac Hempstead Wright Thought Bran's Ending Was a 'Joke'

Isaac Hempstead Wright Thought Bran's Ending Was a 'Joke'

The finale, The Iron Throne, broke the record set by last weekend's episode, The Bells, which attracted 18.4m viewers.

With Game of Thrones officially ended, HBO has started to market their other flagship series Westworld, which is getting its third season next year.

So, there you have it; you weren't the only one shocked by "The Iron Throne", as Isaac Hempstead Wright had to do a double take before realizing that it was his character, Bran the Broken, who ultimately emerged as the victor of Game of Thrones.

The record for the most-watched USA television show is still held by the Korean War comedy MASH, which attracted almost 106 million viewers for the final episode in 1983.

"Why do you think I came all this way?" he says, and quickly rewards Tyrion by making him hand of the king.

Hempstead-Wright praised the ending of the show, specifically that "nothing is tied up neatly, and we are instead forced to ponder what the fate of this once great kingdom will be after everything has gone so wrong".

Fans were not entirely convinced by the move to make Bran the ruler of the six Kingdoms either and were sent into overdrive on social media as they watched the eagerly anticipated finale.

In an interview with EW, Hempstead Wright talks about the "oh s**t" moment he had after reading Bran's ending. Across all HBO platforms - meaning linear, HBO Go, and HBO Now - "The Iron Throne" was watched by 19.3 million people. 'Yeah, good one guys. "Oh shit! It's actually real?!'" It's 'bittersweet, ' exactly as [saga author] George R.R. Martin intended.

"I'm happy", he said. "Perhaps there will be something missing in having a real emotive leader, which is a useful quality in a king or queen as well". "Though I kind of did want to die and get in one good death scene with an exploding head or something". Given proper time to let this story unfold, Daenerys could have been one of television's greatest and most tragic villains, Arya could have been the superhero's superhero, and Bran could have been.

"Because I know how much work was put into this".
