Which Game of Thrones characters will be missing in Season 5? SPOILERS

September 4th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Game of Thrones. Oh, Game of Thrones. With the character of Bran having reached his goal at the end of season four (for now) it looks like he and his carers Hodor and Ellie Kendrick (Meera Reed) are out this season… but certainly not for good.

WinterIsComing is reporting that a lot of “characters are completely left out of Book Four of A Song of Ice and Fire. It’s the main reason why next season is a weaving together of Books Four and Five. Because the characters who are left out are characters you can’t leave out.”

They are reporting that Kristian Nairn, who plays Hodor, has said that he is not in season five at all and is getting a break from filming: “We 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 of himself and Isaac Hempstead Wright who plays Brandon.

Presumably – and I haven’t read the books myself – this means the characters have little to do until events progress to the end of next season when they’ll be reintroduced?

Let us know your thoughts folks…

Hodor Hodor! Hordor! Hodor! Hodor Hodor! Hordor! Hodor! Hodor Hodor! Hordor! Hodor! Hodor Hodor! Hordor! Hodor!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
