Game of Thrones Season 6 Will Visit the Past and Future

HBO

"It’s quite Inception-y,” says the actor

Fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones were excited to see a sneak peek of Bran’s upcoming return to the show after a season-long absence on Monday, and now, there’s even more intriguing news: actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright has revealed detail’s about the character’s arc on season 6, and it sounds like viewers will get to see critical scenes from the past and future of Westeros through his eyes, thanks to his mystical training with the Three-Eyed Raven.
