Who Would the Cast Bring Back to Life?


In honor of the eye-opening event that closed “Home” on Sunday, HBO.com asked the cast who they’d most want to see brought back from the dead. Here’s what they said.

All in the family…

Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran Stark): "Robb Stark. I’d like to bring all the Starks back. As one of the few Stark siblings alive at the moment, we’re really missing them."

Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen): "I’m torn between my brother, Harry Lloyd [Viserys Targaryen] or Khal Drogo."

Hannah Murrah (Gilly): "Catelyn Stark. Those girls need their mother. It breaks my heart every time I think about it."

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister): "I would like to bring Tywin back. Charles Dance was a wonderful actor and he brought so much depth to the character. He was a great villain."

Lasting bonds…

Jonathan Pryce (High Sparrow): "I’d bring Charles Dance back. He needs the work."

John Bradley (Samwell Tarly): "I’d definitely bring Robb Stark back. He had a passion in him. He was fighting for things and his life was cut short before he had the chance to achieve them."

Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth): "Stannis! I miss that man. I miss Stephen [Dillane] and working with him."

Aidan Gillien (Littlefinger): "I quite liked Thoros of Myr, he’s not dead but I’d like to bring him back into the story. And of course, Catelyn Stark. I’m still hoping she might appear, she being the love of my life and all."

Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Bolton): "It’d have to be Robb Stark. I loved Robb Stark, he was my favorite. I was pretty gutted when he died. It’d be great to have him back and have some good in the world."

Fan fave picks…

Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark): "Oberyn. I loved watching Pedro Pascal."

Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy): "Jory Cassel"

Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne): "Khal Drogo. He’s a big badass, isn’t he? I would have liked to see him for a little longer."

The most common answer…

Michiel Huisman (Daario Naharis): "Ned Stark. He was one of the first really shocking deaths on the show. I’ll never really recover from that."

Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister): "Ned Stark, why not?"

Michael McElhattan (Roose Bolton): "Sean Bean"

Dean Charles Chapman (Tommen Baratheon): "Ned Stark because he would change things in a second."

Kristofer Hivju (Tormund): "I want Ned Stark back."
