Game of Thrones: Of Monsters and Men set for cameo
Another Icelandic band is going to Westeros.
Game of Thrones has tapped Of Monsters and Men to appear in season 6, EW has confirmed.
The “Little Talks” folk-rock group — whose band name actually sounds like it could be some alternate foreign title for Game of Thrones — follows on the heels of fellow Icelandic trio Sigur Rós appearing in season 4.
In fact, Thrones producers have a history of giving cameos to their favorite artists, with Coldplay’s Will Champion, Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody and Mastodon making appearances in previous seasons.
The casting originally leaked via a fan tweeting pics of the band on the show’s set in Girona, Spain, then it was posted on the Watchers on the Wall fan site.
Many members of the Thrones team are headed to Los Angeles for the Emmy Awards on Sunday night, where the show has more nominations than any other series. Could this be the year Thrones finally wins the top prize for best drama series? Here are our predictions.
Game of Thrones will return in 2016.
HBO's epic fantasy drama based on George R.R. Martin's novel series A Song of Ice and Fire.
