Ever since Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) turned into the Three-Eyed Raven, he became an emotionless psychic who was way different from the little boy he used to be. He can now visit the past, see what is about to happen, and control minds to do things in favor of the situation.

In fact, there is now a wide-spread theory that he is the man behind the Night King (Vladimir Furdik). In an interview with Vulture, the 18-year-old star talked about this assumption, the changes that happened to his character, and a little bit aboutGame of ThronesSeason 8.

The differences between Bran and the Night King

Isaac Hempstead Wright told Vulture that Bran and the Night King are less than the same person and more like two ancient beings living in Westeros.

The Three-Eyed Raven has been around since time immemorial while the White Walkers existed since the beginning of time. In fact, the Wights are said to be have been created by the Children of the Forest.

“We can’t get much more ancient than that,” Wright said. Bran and the Night King both have huge powers, but he likened Vladimir Furdik’s character to Frankenstein who knows nothing but hatred and violence. Bran, on the other hand, uses his ability for the greater good of everyone. He even uses his power to find out why the villain wants to destroy the mankind.

He even teased that this might be explored in “Game of Thrones” Season 8.

Bran’s new personality

“Bran has lost that emotional connection,” Isaac Hempstead Wright said. Bran just says whatever he sees apathetically. He doesn’t feel connected to anything and just says things the way they are.

In doing his role, Wright revealed that he had a discussion with executive producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss before they started filming the television show’s recently-concluded seventh chapter.

He disclosed that they told him to act a little like Doctor Manhattan from the “Watchmen.”

Bran’s character as the Three-Eyed Raven is quite closely based on Doctor Manhattan. He can be in different times at once, know a lot of different things, and be indifferent to connecting various events and the universe’s history. This is the image they wanted but they didn’t want it to be a boring and dull portrayal.

Of course, there should be a little bit of Bran’s personality left although he is now the last Greenseer. “It’s like he’s the first cyborg,” Wright said to Vulture, "We just connected a supercomputer to a human being’s brain. He’s a mainframe, but there’s a little bit of his personality. More often than not, though, Bran is a vessel for human knowledge.”
