It must be tricky going to university when you’re Bran Stark of Winterfell.
18-year-old Game of Thrones actor Isaac Hempstead Wright has just rocked up at the University of Birmingham to start his first year as a student, and it’s blowing everyone’s minds. Because – let’s face it – the last thing you expect to see in your lectures is a three-eyed raven. Surely he already knows everything?
Forget my degree, all I want is a selfie with Bran Stark this year

Still, Isaac’s been a big hit at fresher’s fair already. Bet he got SO MANY free pens.

It’s definitely going to be hard for some students to separate this 18-year-old from his character…

And with season eight not due out until next year, what are the chances he’ll get asked for spoilers? 100%.
