Game of Thrones has had a spectacular cast over its lifetime, and it doesn’t just include actors who are by profession, but a lot of other celebrities who have had cameos in the series. Now, we know that a lot of these cameos have come from celebrities from the music industry, and from what we’re hearing now, we are getting another one. The famous rock band, Bastille, will be seen in Season 7 of Game of Thrones.
According to a report by Game of Thrones fan site Watchers on the Wall, Bastille has filmed a cameo, where they dressed as wildlings. The most important bit in this news is that the filming took place at the Wolf Hall Quarry set – the icy set for an important winter scene which involves a few stars, and about 300 extras playing wights. We are assuming that Bastille will be a part of this scene. However, there is one small mystery. The filming on this set had finished a while ago, and the report says that Bastille just filmed their cameo, so it is unknown whether this is another scene entirely, or the same one.
A few other bits make this story convincing, like the fact that Dan Smith, the lead singer of the band, said that they will “get to check out the set of Game of Thrones soon, which will be wicked,” which might sound like not as big a deal as we’re making it sound, but we like to speculate. Also, the band has been known to be fans of the series, which means that they probably will be really into the idea of doing a cameo, like many others have, before.
To name a few others who have had cameos in the series, Will Champion of Coldplay was at the Red Wedding, playing a drummer, Snow Patrol‘s Gary Lightbody, was a part of the Bolton crew, singing The Bear and the Maiden Fair, Sigur Rós was at the Purple Wedding, playing The Rains of Castamere, Mastodon took the roles of wildlings made by the Night King at Hardhome, and Of Monsters and Men played musicians at Braavos. Phew, that’s a lot of cameos!
Let’s see if we do get to see Bastille on Game of Thrones. It doesn’t look like they will officially confirm this information before Season 7 drops this summer, so all we can do it wait. What do you think? Talk to us in the comments, below!
