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 cameo: Champion will play … a drummer!
This is actually the second famous musician to appear on Thrones in the upcoming season. Snow Patrol lead singer Gary Lightbody was cast last summer in a cameo role that hasn’t yet been officially described (Next: Bono as Ramsay Snow!).
Let’s hope Champion and Lightbody fare better than that last notable musician character in the show — King Joffrey ordered the singer Marillion’s tongue ripped out in the first season finale.
