Ever since Game of Thrones finished its last season, making it the most divisive in the show's history, fans have been asking: will the ending be the same in the book series? (And also: Will we ever get the books? But that's a separate issue.) Luckily for us, but less lucky for book author George R.R. Martin, the actor who plays Bran Stark on the show, Isaac Hempstead Wright, might have just spoiled a huge plot point for the books.
According to an article on HBO, Isaac spoke about his character, delving in directly to what George told the creators about his character and then how the books basically ended. Oh boy.
George had already indicated that the book ending would be different than the show (opens in new tab), yet similar in some ways. He loves to tease his fans, though, so goodness knows what he actually meant by that. Since the show was so condensed, he likely has different pathways for the characters to get to their end-states—but the fact that we now know a big spoiler is a teeny, tiny bit hilarious, in my opinion.
Bran becoming King of the 6 Kingdoms even though he did not want it at all was excellent foreshadowing on the writers part about how no one wanted the show to end up like this.#GameOfThrones pic.twitter.com/OECTAGKh1PMay 20, 2019
The thing I find MOST hilarious here is that Issac's character, Bran, is all-seeing and all-knowing, so of course the actor who plays him also knows everything about the book endings too. Game of Thrones book fans likely just made many angry YouTube videos in protest of this new spoiler, I'm guessing. (There have been a lot of thoughts, and fans aren't showing any signs of slowing down.)
