Ned Stark Will Return For ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 6

youngned_geeksandcleatsNed Stark is coming.

No, not Sean Bean (sorry, folks) but as previously speculated, a young version of the Quiet Wolf has been cast for what appears to be a flashback scene.

Thirteen year old English actor, Sebastian Croft is taking the future Lord of Winterfell’s shoes and thankfully he won’t suffer any decapitations.

As confirmed back in May, HBO released casting calls for Season 6 of three boys for what seems like the same scene; one description in particular sounds much like Ned Stark.

“7 year old boy with dark brown hair, a narrow face and green eyes. He also has a Northern accent. He also spars with the wooden sword, so it’s safe to assume it’s the same scene. This role is similarly open-ended, the description only stating that the character is being ‘introduced.” – WatchersOnTheWall

They may have gone with an older Ned so it’s going to be interesting to watch where exactly they’re going with this.

Most likely Ned will be found sparring with his brothers – Brandon and/or Benjen – at Winterfell. No word if they’re planning on throwing in their sister Lyanna in the mix though it would be cool to finally put a face to her character, even as a kid.

Speculations that production will finally cover the infamous Tower of Joy scene – where Ned finds his sister in a pool of blood right before the war for the Iron Throne ended – after the location of a castle in Spain, that holds a great resemblance to the tower, was confirmed to be one of the many sights for Season 6.

If this is the case then Lyanna has to make an appearance somehow, unless they’re merely playing with our hearts.

The North remembers.

Game of Thrones Season 6 is expected to premiere next Spring.
