Entertainment Weekly has reported that Coldplay drummer Will Champion will have a cameo role in season three of Game of Thrones as, shockingly, a drummer. He joins Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody as the second musician to cameo in Thrones this season. From James Hibberd:
You know your show is a big deal when you need to cast a drummer and Will Champion shows up.
The Coldplay musician will appear in the eagerly anticipated third season of the fantasy drama.
Here’s all we’re permitted to reveal about his part: Champion will play … a drummer!
It seems likely Champion got hooked up with the production via Emilia Clarke, who recently starred in Spike Island, which was produced by Champion and his fellow Coldplay bandmates.
Winter Is Coming: Awesome! I love how this show has become the “cool” show for celebrities to talk about and, now, have cameos in. Who else would you like to see in Thrones?
