Game of Thrones fans were left bothered after they saw Daenerys and Jon Snow made love in the season 7 finale. The fact that both are Targaryens made the act incestuous, although actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright, who plays Bran Stark, says it is the least of Bran's worries.

Speaking in character, Wright believes that it is not a problem for Bran if Daenerys and Jon have an incestuous relationship. He says that Bran has more important matters to think about, most importantly the survival of the people in the upcoming battle with the Night King and his army of White Walkers.

"I don't think it'll be such an issue for Bran because I think he takes quite an objective look at the world, and mainly all he's concerned with is whether people are getting killed and whether there are people lying. I don't think Bran's really sitting there judging whether having sex with your aunt is right or not," Wright tells CinemaBlend in a recent interview.

Wright adds that Bran has no right to judge people and determine what relationships they should or should not have. However, what the Three-Eyed Raven is more concerned about is the fact that Daenerys and Jon Snow's relationship could lead to conflict. It could be very dangerous when they realize they are related come Game of Thrones season 8.

"What will bother Bran more is the fact that it could end up being a very very tricky situation with this new queen and the person who's actually the king and they're in love," Wright adds in his interview.

The season 7 finale of Game of Thrones left fans in disgust after they saw Daenerys and Jon Snow make love on the ship bound for the North. Most importantly, it made them wonder how they will proceed with their relationship once they know that they are related.

In the August finale of Game of Thrones season 7, Bran and Sam confirmed fans' long-held speculation that Jon Snow is a Targaryen. Thanks to Bran's visions and Sam's readings at the Citadel, fans learned that Jon is actually the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. His real name is Aegon Targaryen. This makes him the rightful heir to the Iron Throne and Daenerys' nephew.

Eventually, Jon would learn about his lineage in Game of Thrones season 8. This knowledge could create conflict in his relationship with Daenerys if he decides to compete with her over the Iron Throne. However, the past seasons in the HBO drama series has since proven that Jon is not power-hungry, so he might give up his inheritance over his love for the Mother of Dragons.
