As filming gets underway for the highly anticipated fifth season of HBO's "Game of Thrones", Variety reports that two of the show's main characters will be sitting out the next season.
According to the report, Kristian Nairn, who portrays the giant Hodor on the show, revealed to the Australian Broadcasting Channel that he and Isaac Hempstead-Wright, who plays the young Bran Stark, will not be back for Season Five. "We have a season off. We have a year's hiatus," he told the network, sharing that the decision is mostly likely the result of George R.R. Martin's storyline in the books of which the show is based on.
HBO has thus far declined to comment on the report.
Nairn is currently touring as a DJ throughout Australia for his "Rave of Thrones" tour. Meanwhile, Hempstead-Wright is lending his vocal talents to one of the character's in the upcoming animated film, "The Boxtrolls."
HBO's fifth season of "Game of Thrones" will premiere in early 2015.
