Will Champion On 'Game Of Thrones': Coldplay Drummer Makes Cameo Appearance As Drummer

Posted: Updated:

"Game of Thrones" fans are still reeling from Sunday night's penultimate episode, "The Rains of Castamere," a.k.a. the Red Wedding episode, a.k.a. you crazy for this one George RR Martin. Despite the blood and tears (and blood and blood), Episode 9 did feature one brief moment of levity for those viewers paying close attention: a cameo appearance from Coldplay drummer Will Champion.

Champion played a drummer in the episode, casting that was first announced by back in November of 2012. He was the second musician to pop up in a Season 3 episode of "Game of Thrones": As NME noted, Snow Patrol lead singer (and part-time Taylor Swift duet partner) Gary Lightbody made a cameo appearance in April as a soldier.

Watch Champion's brief "Game of Thrones" scene at the 23-second mark in the video above. For more on the shocking episode, check out HuffPost TV coverage here and here. Warning: Major spoilers at those hyperlinks.
