It appears that our favorite band of misfits might be sitting on the back burned for 2015. Kristian Nairn (Hodor) has revealed to Yahoo! that his character won’t be a part of season 5. The interview goes on to state that in addition to Nairn’s absence, Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran Stark) will also be skipping the upcoming season.
“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,” the actor told Yahoo! News.
