Rob McElhenney, Martin Starr were in the Game of Thrones season 8 premiere
It’s Always Sunny in Westeros Valley.
Sunday’s Game of Thrones season 8 premiere featured numerous reunions, one romantic dragon ride, zero elephants, and, as it turns out, two blink-and-you-miss-it cameos. During Theon’s rescue of Yara, he and his crew took out a few of Euron’s men, including two played by It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Rob McElhenney and Silicon Valley‘s Martin Starr.
McElhenney, who also co-created the long-running FXX comedy, confirmed his role on Instagram with a shot of an arrow through his eye and the caption, “Don’t blink.” If rewatching, McElhenney and Starr are the first two casualties.
McElhenney’s cameo isn’t a huge shocker considering his relationship with GoT creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss goes back years, with the duo even writing a 2013 episode of Always Sunny.
