Bran Stark’s intense stare has landed quite a lot of attention with the return of Game of Thrones, but although the Three Eyed Raven might be a deep thinker, it all comes down to a lack of glasses. 

Actor Isaac Hempstead Wright chatted to Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday about his role, one he’s had since he was ten years old. And yes, he knows about the attention his creepy stare is getting.

“I’m getting good at this kind of intense stare, but it’s actually aided by the fact that I’m completely blind when I’m on set. I don’t have my glasses, and I don’t have contact lenses,” he said.

“I remember I was doing one scene in Season 7 with Sophie Turner who plays Sansa, and she said ‘Isaac, your stare is like, you’re staring into my soul.’ And I said, ‘I can’t see you, that’s why.'”

Wright “can neither confirm nor deny” the popular fan theory that Bran is the Night King, but he did mention that the Three Eyed Raven was “definitely on the side of the living.” Whatever that means.
