'Game of Thrones' Won't Feature Bran Stark and Hodor in Season 5


'Game of Thrones' Won't Feature Bran Stark and Hodor in Season 5


The two characters are benched for a while as their journey has reached as far as their storyline in the last book.

"Game of Thrones" fans may be upset to learn that two of their favorite characters won't return in season 5. Kristian Nairn, who plays Hodor, revealed the shocking plot shakeup, saying that his character and Isaac Hempstead-Wright's Bran Stark wouldn't be featured at least for a season.

"We have a season off and we have a year's hiatus, solely because I imagine our storyline is up to the end of the books," Nairn told Yahoo! News in Australia. "So, I get my year off now to do Rave of Thrones and gallivant all over the world," he added, referring to his DJing career where he throws "GOT"-themed parties.

The twist is not without a reason since Bran and Hodor have reached as far as the characters have progressed in George R.R. Martin's novels. The last time fans saw them, they have reached Bran's three-eyed crow mentor. Their temporary absence will allow the other storylines to catch up to Bran's while Martin is readying a new book in his "A Song of Ice and Fire" saga.

"Game of Thrones" season 5 is currently in production for a 2015 premiere. Spain is added as one of the filming locations as the show is going to introduce a new Westeros country, Dorne, which is the homeland of Prince Oberyn Martell and his family.
