“Game of Thrones” to crossover with “Doctor Who”? Given his character’s ability to travel to the past, can GoT fans expect a cameo role from actor Peter Capaldi in Season 6?
Although it would be interesting to see this, it won’t happen this time around. However, “Game of Thrones” could soon have its own version of the Doctor with the return of Bran Stark. Actor Isaac Hempstead Wright, who plays Stark, spoke with Entertainment Weekly about his character’s return to the series. Wright revealed how his powers had progressed since the last time GoT fans saw him. Consequently, he’s branded himself as Doctor Bran.
“[Bran] is starting to make use of the visions and starting to discover he can interact with the past – he’s like Doctor Who. It’s Doctor Bran!” Wright told EW.
So far, his character had “seen tiny glimpses of future or past but never has he been very much in control of the situation.” This time around, Bran is able to piece together “important events in the past, present and future of this world and Bran is beginning to piece them together like a detective, almost as if he’s watching the show.” The actor described the power as being “Inception-y.”
“Game of Thrones” Season 6 episode 2 entitled “Home” welcomes back Bran Stark and the Greyjoys, the Independent reported. The publication recalled Stark’s last appearance was after he’d escaped a pack of White Walkers. This time, he reappears at the South of The Wall. However, it’s unsure if his emergence there is a vision or a flashback. The episode will also show him undergo training with the Three-Eyed Raven.
Notably different about Bran is that he is now able to stand under his own power, Screenrant wrote. However, the publication remarked that it could only be his perception of himself.
