Isaac Hempstead-Wright might be the Three-eyed Raven in HBO's fantasy epic, Game of Thrones, but the English star says that Bran doesn't really know "everything" about the history of the universe of the show.

Speaking in an interview with Cinema Blend, Hempstead-Wright explained that being the Three-Eyed Raven doesn't really mean that he knows absolutely everything, instead he likes an encyclopedia that he can look up things on.

"I think it wasn't quite fully explained how Bran's power works. It's not that he knows absolutely everything already, it's like he has a dictionary in front of him, or an encyclopedia with all of history, and he can look anything up. Like at the end when Samwell says ‘Oh, is this something you can see?' Bran can go back and look at it and say ‘Oh yeah, that happened.'"

This explains why Sam had to direct Bran to the wedding between Lynna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen to help find out the truth about Jon's parentage. History might have told a different story, but Rhaegar didn't rape Lynna, he loved her, married her, and gave her a son.

We wonder what Bran will be able to accomplish with is "encyclopedia" of powers when Game of Thrones returns with its eighth and final season either in 2018 or 2019.
