Kristian Nairn and Isaac Hempstead-Wright have confirmed that they will not be appearing in the new series of Game Of Thrones.
The pair, who play the parts of Hodor and Bran Stark, will not have a role in the show's fifth series, which begins filming later this year.
Nairn confirmed the news to Australia's ABC, saying: "We have a season off and we have a year's hiatus, solely because I imagine our storyline is up to the end of the books. I get my year off now to do Rave Of Thrones and gallivant all over the world."
Much of the new series of Game Of Thrones is set to be shot in Spain, which is to be the location for the previously-unseen Westeros country.
There are a slew of new cast members joining the show, including one-time Bond villain Jonathan Pryce, you can read more about that here.
Rave Of Thrones is Nairn's DJ tour, which you can read more about here.
