It has been a few months since Game of Thrones wrapped up Season 6, and since then we have been just hearing about Season 7 filming. It went on for quite a while, too, apparently finishing at the end of February, making it the first ever Game of Thrones to continue with its filming into the same year as its premiere. Now, the show has had a great cast over the years, and celebrity cameos have been an integral part of it. We have heard rumors about Season 7 having cameos from UFC star Conor McGregor, which he then denied, and the rock band Bastille, and now we’re hearing about yet another cameo, this time from New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard.
This news come right after the new Game of Thrones / Major League Baseball (MLB) began with their cross promotional campaign. MLB themselves revealed this news on their official blog. Syndergaard, apparently filmed in Spain, back in November, for his cameo as an extra on the show. Noah was quoted as saying :
“They just know that I’m a fan and they invited me to do that… I couldn’t say no.”
Now, Noah’s filming details don’t leave us much room for guessing which scene he might be a part of, considering that the Spanish arm of filming was quite lengthy. So it looks like we will have to wait till summer (most probably July), to find out what role Noah will fill.
The New York Mets, aren’t among the 19 teams which are a part of the Game of Thrones / MLB cross promotional campaign, but they might hop onto it later, especially since one of their players will be on the show, now.
Noah Syndergaard is also quite a pop culture geek, known to be a fan of Marvel comics, The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, and more, so we’re guessing he must be quite thrilled about starring on Game of Thrones.
Which role do you see Noah playing in Season 7 of Game of Thrones? Tell us in the comments, below!
