It's Monday night and the newly opened Brew La La craft beer bar in Tokyo's Shinbashi neighborhood is hopping. As the clock strikes 8 p.m., however, the 60 or so people gathered there fall silent. "Game of Thrones" is on.

It's the seventh season premiere and watching it with such a large group gives a cinematic vibe to the event. In fact, more and more people seem to be watching the show in groups (if YouTube reaction videos are anything to go by).

One person who watches it live — literally, live — is Isaac Hempstead Wright. He plays Brandon Stark on the show. When he's not involved in the filming, however, he says he watches the show at home with his family. So — spoiler alert — he was just as surprised as we were when the character Oberyn Martell died in the fourth season.
