Bran Stark from Game of Thrones just started college, and his new classmates are seriously hyped about it.

Actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright just started a degree in math at the University of Birmingham, England. He follows in the footsteps of his former Game of Thrones co-star Jack Gleeson (Joffrey Baratheon), who studied at Trinity College, Dublin, while Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner opted to focus on their acting careers.

Hempstead-Wright has a secondary role Game of Thrones, but his fame was more than enough to attract attention among Birmingham University students on Twitter.

It looks like a lot of people are excited to meet him at fresher’s parties in the first weeks of term, but luckily for him, things will probably die down soon enough. If Emma Watson could complete a degree at Brown University after achieving worldwide fame in Harry Potter, then a Game of Thrones star can survive at Birmingham University. And fortunately for him, he only has to tolerate one more season of people begging him for Game of Thrones spoilers.
