‘Game of Thrones’: Lino Facioli Embraces Playing ‘That Weird Kid’ Who Returned in the Finale

‘Game of Thrones’: Lino Facioli Embraces Playing ‘That Weird Kid’ Who Returned in the Finale
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Game of Thrones” Season 8, Episode 6, “The Iron Throne.”]

“Make the bad man, fly!” little Robin Arryn once demanded — nay, screamed — in the first season of “Game of Thrones.” Among the nearly 200 main and recurring characters on the series, the bratty young Lord of the Eyrie was never really been a fan favorite, but he certainly became a breakout in the series finale despite uttering only one word. During a council of Westeros’ lords and ladies, a grown-up Robin votes “aye” for Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) to become king.

Actor Lino Facioli’s appearance has changed significantly because he was only 14 when he last appeared two seasons ago, but four years later, he’s entered adulthood. Viewers were not prepared for the more mature Robin, and social media posts remarked on how the Starks’ young and sickly cousin had “glow’d up.”

Facioli was shocked by the intense attention that his guest appearance inspired online.

George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels provided the skeleton upon which David Benioff and Dan Weiss built out Game of Thrones. The novels also provided the series finale with one last wink and nod to the audience who originally hail from the books: newly minted Grand Maester Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) presenting Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) with a history book about the past eight seasons of events, appropriately titled "A Song of Ice and Fire."

‘Game of Thrones’ Series Finale: A Lot of ‘Love’ Despite Much-Criticized Ending

  • Variety
Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched “The Iron Throne,” the series finale of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” aka season 8, episode 6.

Bran Stark may have a perpetual poker face, but “Game of Thrones” fans certainly had a lot of feelings about him Sunday night.

The stony faced character was the No. 1 emotional driver of the episode, according to Canvs, a research startup that uses artificial intelligence to gauge natural-language commentary on social media. Bran “Three-Eyed Raven” Stark, played by Isaac Hempstead Wright, garnered 10.9% of the 578,059 emotional reactions on Twitter.

Of those who tweeted about him, 58.5% fell into the “enjoy” category, 10.1% into “dislike,” and 8.6% were “crazy”-related — no doubt reacting to his sudden ascent to the top of the King’s Landing food chain after a seasons-long battle between Cersei Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen for the throne.

Tyrion Lannister, who became Bran’s No. 2 in Westeros, was similarly No.

Review: Game of Thrones S8 E6 – The Iron Throne

Warning: Full Spoilers For Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6 “The Iron Throne” Ahead

The feeling that a TV Series’ final episode should leave its audience with is a subject open to debate, but whatever your view, it’s fairly certain that ‘indifference’ is not the correct answer. That’s not to say that The Iron Throne was a bad episode by any means, just that for a show that has been so uncompromising, the ending felt like a compromise – of both its characters and of logic. There are a few high points worth discussing, but let’s start by looking at the episode’s most head-scratching moments.

First of all, what have they done to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke)? For someone who has been so measured and calculating for the seven seasons, the circumstances around her death just made her seem stupid. After braying for two weeks about how Jon Snow

‘Game of Thrones’: Burning Questions (and Some Answers) After the Series Finale
[Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not seen the series finale of “Game of Thrones.”]

All told, “Game of Thrones” got a pretty tidy ending. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) is dead, the Starks have all embarked on different paths, and there’s a new king in town with a different council. However, with all the storylines and characters that were introduced over the course of eight seasons, we’re bound to still have some questions remaining.

Fans may have to wait until George R.R. Martin finally releases “The Winds of Winter,” the next installment in his “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series, for those answers. But in the meantime, inquiring minds at Variety pose questions we still have after the grand finale — and took a crack at tying up the loose ends.

Where are Dany and Drogon?

When Drogon, Dany’s lone surviving dragon, discovered his murdered mother, after throwing a fire-fueled fit of grief, he took her body and flew away,

(Warning: This post contains major spoilers for the “Game of Thrones” series finale, titled “The Iron Throne.”)

Game of Thrones” gave fans one more big twist toward the end of its series finale, when it was revealed that Bran Stark a.k.a. the Three-Eyed Raven (played by Isaac Hempstead Wright) would be the leader of the Seven — er, Six Kingdoms, following the murder of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) at the hand of Jon Snow (Kit Harington).

He was elected by a committee made up by the lords and ladies of Westeros, after Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) gave a rousing speech about how Bran’s story and the stories he holds about their history will make him the perfect king.

While viewers continue to heatedly debate whether or not Bran should have been the one sitting on the now-metaphorical Iron Throne — since that sword-covered chair was burned up by Drogon after

Isaac Hempstead-Wright on Game of Thrones Finale:
Bran Stark: The boy nobody thought would be king, let alone survive the whole series. But Game of Thrones did that. In the series finale, Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) was appointed king of the Six Kingdoms—Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) spun off the North into its own kingdom—by the heads of the great houses of Westeros. It was an unexpected move, and one that left fans divided. Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) said Bran had the best story, which is debatable depending on who you ask, but here we are.

‘Game of Thrones’ Finale: Here’s Isaac Hempstead Wright’s Rebuttal for Fans Who Say ‘Bran Doesn’t Do Anything’
(Warning: This post contains major spoilers for the “Game of Thrones” series finale, titled “The Iron Throne.”)

Isaac Hempstead Wright’s “Game of Thrones” alter-ego Bran Stark won the titular game on Sunday’s series finale, shocking many longtime viewers who thought Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Jon Snow (Kit Harington) or even Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) would ultimately claim the Iron Throne.

In truth, no one got the Iron Throne, because Drogon melted it, and Bran, a.k.a. the Three-Eyed Raven, a.k.a. Bran the Broken, is the new ruler of the Six Kingdoms — after Sansa (Sophie Turner) requested her brother liberate the North for her to rule independently. Wright was just as shocked as some viewers when he first learned how the story would end.

“So I found out when I first got the script,” Wright told TheWrap in an interview early Monday. “I remember just reading
