ISAAC Hempstead-Wright plans to release a single.

The 16-year-old actor may be famous for playing Bran Stark in 'Game of Thrones' but he has a number of other ambitions, including attending university.

He said: "I always wanted to study physics. But now I'm not so sure. I really love music, and I'd maybe like to study music now."

Asked if he will one day release a single, he added: "Yeah, maybe. I don't doubt you'll see a single from me."

Isaac is making a return to 'Game of Thrones' after sitting out season five because his character's story arc had reached the point it is at in George R.R. Martin's novels, and the young actor admits it was a "shock to the system" when he got back on set.

He told Loaded magazine: "It was a shame not being in season five, but it was the right time for me to take a year out.

"I hadn't done any acting in that whole year out, so it was quite a shock to the system to go back on a freezing cold film set. Once I was back into it, it was great fun."

Though plot details for season six are being kept under wraps, Isaac has promised things will be "bigger and bigger and bigger" than ever.

He said: "You'll see things in season six that have never quite made sense before - and now it will all start to tie up.

"Stories all start to come together to make sense. I know we say this every season, but this series sees everything get bigger and bigger and bigger."
