If you watched the latest episode of Game of Thrones the other night, you probably noticed that Bran Stark was acting particularly weird when he returned to Winterfell. In fact, he barely flinched when his sister Sansa came over and gave him a big hug and then, for some reason, he thought it would be a great idea to bring up that time she was raped by Ramsay Bolton. Not great chit-chat to say the least.

Well, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Isaac Hempstead-Wright - who plays Bran - has discussed why his character was acting so cold, and it all revolves around Bran's transition from a young boy into his new role as the Three-Eyed Raven.

"It’s like imagining you have all of space and time in your head," he said. "Bran is existing in thousands of planes of existence at any one time. So it’s quite difficult for Bran to have any kind of semblance of personality anymore because he’s really like a giant computer."

In addition to this, Bran wasn't even ready for the role according to the old Three-Eyed Raven, so he's really struggling to deal with the constant stream of information pouring into his head.

The fourth episode of Game of Thrones' seventh season will be airing on 6 August on HBO.
