The actor that plays Bran Stark thought the final script for Game of Thrones was a joke


*Warning: MAJOR spoilers ahead*

Okay so by now, we're all on a bit of a come down following the final ever episode of Game of Thrones.

It was... an unexpected end, to say the least.

Jon killed Dany, and was exiled to the Night's Watch as a result - despite it being somewhat of a mercy killing.

Sansa claimed the north as her own, becoming Queen of the region.

Ayra pissed off west of Westeros, to discover the rest of the world.

But the biggest plot twist of all was the fact that Bran Stark took the crown, and became King.

Anyway, it seems that the ending was also a pretty big curveball for Isaac Hempstead Wright, the actor who plays Bran.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the 20-year-old admitted he though the final script was a joke.

"I genuinely thought it was a joke script and that show runners [David Benioff and D.B. Weiss] sent to everyone a script with their own character ends up on the Iron Throne. 'Yeah, good one guys... Oh s**t, it's actually real?'"

We actually can't imagine how shocked he must have been.

The actor also kind of half apologised to fans, if they were unhappy with the ending, saying that it was "so difficult to wrap up the show without pissing some people off."

"I don’t think anybody will think it’s predictable and that’s as much as you can hope for. People are going to be angry. There’s going to be a lot of broken hearts. It’s bittersweet."

 He hit the nail on the head there.
