Two Game of Thrones characters, Bran and Hodor, will not be appearing in season five of the HBO show. Bran Stark is played by Isaac Hempstead and character of Wright Hodor is played by Kristian Nairn.
Nairn confirmed the news in an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Commission(ABC). “We (Hodor and Bran) 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,” he said.
‘Game of Thrones’ has complicated characters and many parallel stories being told at once. It surely is a plot-heavy affair to be handled. This video made by Mashable tries to take up this challenge and explains Game of Thrones in less than 3 minutes.
