Game of Thrones is set to introduce almost 30 new characters over the course of Season 6 when it debuts this spring. That certainly sounds like a lot of new faces. But that doesn't mean we won't see some returning favorites. Isaac Hempstead-Wright has already confirmed that his Bran Stark, who sat out Game of Thrones Season 5, will be returning. Now, another actor has confirmed his own imminent return. Thing is, he doesn't want to tell us if it's in the upcoming Game of Thrones Season 6.
If asked which House of Westeros is most hated, a majority of the fans will automatically say House Frey. Sure, some fans have turned a blind eye towards Houses Lannister, Greyjoy, or Tyrell. But it's the rare book reader or show watcher who will admit to loving the dirty deeds thrust fourth by Frey. And most generally hate head of House Frey and Lord of the Crossing, Walder Frey.
Walder Frey is famous for being the main suspect in carrying out the awful events of the Red Wedding. He is a very incongruous, lascivious old man. And he is played with perfection by David Bradley. The character hasn't been seen on screen since the Season 3 episode The Rains of Castamere. And in terms of the Ice and Fire novels, he hasn't been seen since the Red Wedding. Many are eagerly waiting to see this loathsome creature get his comeuppance. That may happen soon, as David Bradley confirms his return to Game of Thrones. Though it doesn't sound like he can tell us exactly when he will arrive back in Westeros. This is what he had to say to Zap2it about coming back.
"He will be coming back, but I can't say when. I can't really say because things are in a delicate situation. I do look forward to it, because I do love playing someone so irredeemable. I'm afraid he makes me laugh because he's so appalling that there's a kind of dark humor in there somewhere."
So far, David Bradley's Walder Frey has appeared in only three episodes. Despite that, he has left an indelible impression on the audience. While most have been vocal about their hatred for Joffrey and Ramsey, there's no denying that a great big majority of fans want to see Frey dead. Most speculate that author George R.R. Martin has devised a fitting punishment. But will it arrive in the book, or be seen on screen first? That is the real question.
SPOILER ALERT! Game of Thrones Season 6 is already filming in Ireland, and the big question on everyone's mind is whether or not Kit Harington's Jon Snow will emerge from the grave, or if he's truly dead. A couple of new casting additions have been announced in the past few weeks, with Deadwood's Ian McShane coming in to play a small yet very important role. One that hasn't been revealed. Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Max von Sydow will play the new Three Eyed-Raven opposite Bran Stark. More casting announcements are expected soon as the show continues to find its additional cast roster.
