Isaac Hempstead Wright Spills on Growing Up on 'Game of Thrones'

Isaac Hempstead Wright looks handsome on the cover of Rollacoaster‘s Spring/Summer issue, available now.

Here’s what the 19-year-old Game of Thrones actor had to share with the mag:

On growing up on Game of Thrones: “Looking back retrospectively, I can just see how f**king weird my childhood’s been. It’s literally my adolescence! I’ve become a man on Thrones.”

On characters getting killed off the show: “It’s devastating! You’re spending a huge amount of time in close proximity with these people so they are hugely close and important to you. When you lost on of them, it’s really like losing a very, very good friend. I found that especially with Kristian Nairn, who played Hodor. Losing him was a really sad thing.”

On the series’ ending: “I truly believe we’ve created something so unique and televisually unparalleled that it would be sacrilege if we tried to do another season. This is the absolute pinnacle of Thrones, and that’s the thing. It’s a story, and stories have their conclusions. We could do 10 more seasons of this and people would watch it and everyone would make loads of money, but it’s time for the story to end.”
