Bran sat out season five, as his character was holed up learning to master his ability to control animals’ minds.
The British teenager plays the paralyzed son of Ned and Catelyn Stark, who is able to transport himself into the minds of animals to control them.
Bran was last seen in the season four finale, when he met the Three-Eyed Raven, played by Max von Sydow in the new season.
The latest photo of Bran makes it look like he’s much more determined, maybe even confident, and definitely healthier looking.
“Game of Thrones” returns to HBO this April.
