Jon Snow is not the only one alive, another Ned Stark son is.
Bran Stark is back and he has grown up!
“Game of Thrones” season six will see the return of one of the most beloved character in the series – Bran Stark. Viewers of the HBO hit series missed the crippled boy in the entire season five.
Isaac Hempstead Wright, who played the young Stark, was first seen in the show as a 10-year-old Bran. Six years later, he will return as a teenager, in different haircut, and now stands at about six feet tall.

GoT fans last saw Ned Stark’s son meeting the cave-dwelling mystical Three-Eyed Raven in the season 4 finale as Bran sought to control his psychic powers, Entertainment Weekly noted.
The Three-Eyed Raven will be played by Max von Sydow in season six.
As a “warg,” Bran has the ability to enter the minds of animals and humans. He also has prophetic visions or “greensight.”
In an interview with Irish Examiner back in July, Wright confirmed his return in the show, saying: “I can’t say a lot but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran. He has some interesting visions.”
Bran’s return might turn out to be a game-changer as Stark loyalists could rally around him, especially after what happened to his brother, Jon Snow, Business Insider speculated.
Vanity Fair noted that there were also rumors that Bran and his brand new haircut will play a significant role in Season 6.
“Game of Thrones” stars Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Aidan Gillen, Natalie Dormer, Carice van Houten, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, John Bradley, Hannah Murray, and Gwendoline Christie are all reprising their roles for the sixth season.
The upcoming season of “Game of Thrones” is set to return on HBO sometime in April 2016.
