Isaac Hempstead-Wright (born Isaac William Hempstead, 9 April 1999 in Surrey County, England) is an English actor.

He is best known for his role as Bran Stark on the HBO series Game of Thrones, which earned him a Young Artist Award nomination as Best Young Supporting Actor in a TV Series.


This actor and his roles provide examples of:

  • Those Two Actors: He starred in two films with Rebecca Hall. The latter of those two also has his future Game of Thrones co-star Ciarán Hinds.
  • Thousand-Yard Stare: Perfected this in the later seasons of Game of Thrones when his character Bran Stark became the new psychic repository of knowledge called the Three-Eyed Raven. It's more of a happy accident though, since he can't wear his glasses or contact lenses on set (the glasses would be anachronistic, and contacts would be dangerous because of fake snow) and he's pretty much Blind Without Them to the point where he can't really see anything more than thirty feet away.
