Isaac Hempstead-Wright expected Bran Stark to be the new Night King.
The 20-year-old actor admitted he was on board with the popular 'Game of Thrones' fan theory that the Three-Eyed Raven would take over the army of the dead ahead of filming the eighth and final season - only for his alter ego to be crowned the new king in the final episode.
He admitted: "I thought I was going down the Night King route. I had no idea what was going to happen with Bran."
When he did get his script, the British actor was left in shock when he discovered Bran the Broken's fate.
