“Game of Thrones” is possibly the biggest thing on television right now, and with good reason. The HBO fantasy show has taken over the world with some remarkable drama and very fine performances. You might even be fans of “GoT” cast members like Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow) or Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen). But did you know that some very famous people have appeared on the show, and you probably missed their cameos?
You obviously know about Ed Sheeran’s cameo as a Lannister guard on the seventh season of “GoT”, but apart from the Grammy winner, a whole lot of other musicians and artists have been a part of the show. From Coldplay drummer to bands like Sigur Ros to Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody, we bet you did not take note of these cheeky hidden cameos. So, let’s do a quick reckon
Coldplay’s Will Champion
Did you know Coldplay drummer Will Champion played a drummer on GoT, too? He appeared in the infamous Red Wedding sequence of Season 3 Episode 9, where he was part of the wedding band, and played an old-timey sitting drum. Interestingly, the Red Wedding episode was also one of the most talked about episodes of GoT, and saw the death of some major characters.
Will Champion was also part of Game of Thrones Red Nose Day Special, where he performed along with the cast of the show, and of course, Coldplay members.
Did you know Champion has been with Coldplay since the band began its journey in 1997? The 39-year-old drummer joined the British rock ensemble with almost no previous experience. He left the band for a brief while in 1999, before they asked him to return. Coldplay frontman Chris Martin once said, “We (Coldplay) are all just working for Will Champion.”
