A lot of fans know that HBO's "Game of Thrones" and Netflix's "Stranger Things" are two entirely different series that take place on different timelines, or even perhaps a different reality.

The former is set in a medieval timeline with dragons while the latter is inspired by the '80s with a supernatural twist. However, while that may be the case, it seems like the two shows might actually have something in common after all.

Ellie Kendrick — the actress who plays Meera in the hit HBO series "Game of Thrones" —has recently shared her opinion regarding the show and how it is similar to Netflix's "Stranger Things," particularly the characters Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), during an interview with MTV.

"He's a little tiny boy who gets plunged into this political chaos, and he's got this stranger in the form of Meera looking after him, dragging him around," the actress said about Bran, referring to her character supporting him throughout the series.

"I love the story line he has because he's this kid who's been forgotten, but he has these incredible powers to unleash. It makes me think of Stranger Things a bit. He looks small and weak, and yet he's got this immense strength and capability of mind. That's going to be one of the most exciting things in the coming episodes because he can reveal all of the past and the future," she added.

In "Stranger Things," Eleven is capable of traveling through a different dimension by dipping her whole body into a sensory deprivation tank, Cinemablend reported.

On the other hand, Bran has the ability to let his thoughts and consciousness travel through animals and humans. He can even control their actions. Both abilities are quite useful and devastating, especially if they should fall into the wrong hands.

Because of these abilities, both characters are burdened with a lot of responsibilities, which is the reason why they are oddly similar despite the fact that "Game of Thrones" and "Stranger Things" are two shows with different concepts.

"Game of Thrones" season 7 is slated to air on HBO sometime later next year, with Summer of 2017 as the most probable timeframe, according to some reports.
