Game Of Thrones English actor Isaac Hempstead Wright will be making an appearance at Ion Orchard on April 2.

Wright, 17, plays the character of Bran Stark in the globally successful fantasy series about an epic struggle for power. Bran was not seen in Season 5 of the show, presumably because he was learning about his powers from the wizard-like Three-Eyed Raven and fans are eagerly awaiting his return in Season 6. The 10 new episodes begin airing on HBO here on April 25 at 9am, the same time as in the United States.

The Emmy Award-winning series is based on George R.R. Martin's best-selling book series A Song Of Ice And Fire. Volume 6, The Winds Of Winter, is expected to answer burning questions, such as whether popular character Jon Snow died, but it will not be out by the time the show airs. This means the show is going into uncharted territory even for fans who have been avidly following the novels.

For those who are keen to take a picture with Wright, follow HBO Asia on Facebook for updates or participate in StarHub's contest (www.starhub.com/got-contest), which offers subscribers the chance to meet him.

Details of his appearance at The Game Of Thrones Experience: Worlds Of Westeros will be broadcast on HBO Asia's social media platforms.

The show's fans may also ascend the forbidding ice Wall in a virtual Castle Black winch elevator, sit in a replica of the fought-over Iron Throne and pose for snaps with the fearsome dragon, Drogon.

StarHub customers will be given priority for these activities.
