GOT – Bran Stark.. He’s Back!
Bran Stark is all grown up as he returns to Game of Thrones in new photo from season six
While Game of Thrones fans continue to puzzle over the fate of Jon Snow, one character is definitely set to return in season six.
Bran Stark is back on the hit HBO show, with the now-16-year-old actor sporting a more grown-up look in new official photos from the upcoming season six.
Actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright is seated on horseback, with his hair cut in a shorter style, in the new photo published by Entertainment Weekly.

Bran sat out season five, as his character was holed up learning to master his ability to control animals’ minds.
The British teenager plays the paralyzed son of Ned and Catelyn Stark, who is able to transport himself into the minds of animals to control them.
Bran was last seen in the season four finale, when he met the Three-Eyed Raven, played by Max von Sydow in the new season.
While most of the show’s characters believed he was dead, Bran was actually staying out of sight as he worked to develop his psychic powers.
The actor confirmed earlier this year that he was returning to the smash fantasy-drama.
‘I can’t say a lot but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran,’ the Boxtrolls actor told the Irish Examiner.
‘He has some interesting visions.’
However, Isaac, who didn’t watch season five because he was studying for exams, said he didn’t have any inside information about the fate of Jon Snow.
