When a well-known celebrity makes an appearance in your favourite TV show, it is always a pleasant surprise. The biggest TV show of the past decade, Game of Thrones, witnessed a lot of celebrity cameos. We can’t blame them, the series got so popular and addictive, every single fan wanted to be a part of it.

In an interview with Stereogum, The National frontman Matt Berninger revealed he’s “f***ing p****d” that he and his bandmates were not given a cameo on Game of Thrones.

Berninger revealed his band was on set during the filming of some of the episodes. He said, “The National’s been to the top of the Wall. We were in Belfast. We’ve been to Castle Black. We couldn’t post anything but there are all these great pictures of us at the top of the Wall at Castle Black.”

The indie rock band had recorded songs for the hit HBO series. In 2013, they released a version of the classic Game of Thrones song The Rains of Castamere. They also wrote Turn On Me for an album featuring music inspired by the show.

The frontman couldn’t hold back his frustration when other singers made cameos on the series, including Ed Sheeran, Sigur Ros and members of Coldplay. The singer vented, “You’re right. I’m p****d. I’m f***ing p****d, I’m p****d I never got to be in it. I mean, there are were well-known there and we all have beards and s***.”

Matt also revealed showrunner Dan Weiss was a huge fan of the band. His bandmate, Bryce Dessner, was close friends with Weiss. No wonder the musician is so disappointed. Would you have liked his cameo? Talk to us in the comments below!

Kit Harington passed on a superhero role while filming Game of Thrones: ‘I don’t want it'

Kit Harington is a household name today, thanks to his success as Game of ThronesJon Snow. Jon Snow was a selfless, righteousness and brave hero in the series, with a tone of seriousness in his voice. He would almost always relinquish any honours or titles he received in the series, saying, “I don’t want it.” It seems like Kit Harington has said his famous line quite often, off-screen as well.

The former Game of Thrones star told Total Film magazine he passed up on an unknown superhero role while filming for Game of Thrones. He said, “You know, the comic-book and superhero world has called once before, and I didn’t like the role and the part and the time to do it.”

Harington revealed. “So I turned it down. And then this one [in Eternals] felt right to me. I liked that the character they were offering was not necessarily an Eternal. He was human. I did like that. I felt that I could do something with that, that he came with all these human faults. So it was the character that drew me to it, as well as it being the MCU, and how exciting.”

“I won’t mention what it was, but yeah, there was one other [superhero movie] that I did turn down a while ago,” Harington said. “It was a while ago, as well – just because it didn’t feel like the right thing at the right time. And I think I was right to. My head was very in the Jon Snow world then.”

Hannah Waddingham loved playing Game of Thrones’ “Shame nun”

Game of Thrones had a number of memorable characters, and some of them, though appeared for a short time on-screen, left an everlasting impression on the audience’s mind. The recently Emmy-nominated actress Hannah Waddingham played the famous ‘Shame’ nun in Cersei’s walk of atonement on the show, and she loved every second of it.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Waddingham said most people don’t recognize her from the role.

That was my finest, prettiest hour,” the actress joked. “I mean, they are right, left and centre now, and thankfully, everyone’s shocked,” she added of the audience. “So that’s good.”

Waddingham’s costume, which resembled a nun’s costume, obscured most of her body except for her face.

I loved it, because it meant I could just sit sleeping in the trailer for hours on end, look like I’d been dug up, and they’d say, ‘Yeah, that looks great,’” she said.

Waddingham said she and Headey developed a friendship on set, despite their characters hating one another.

We met on [set] and just fell in love with each other immediately,” Waddingham said. “I just think sometimes you meet what we call in England, birds … and you’re just like, yeah, you’re a bird, I’m a bird, that’s it, we’re in.”

Game of Thrones is one of the most popular shows of all time, there’s hardly anyone on this planet who hasn’t heard of the show. The upcoming prequel House of The Dragon is on the way, and fans all over the world are already hyped up about it. While some of us have already started a rewatch of the epic fantasy series to gear up for the prequel show, singer Shawn Mendes is already a step ahead of everyone else. In a recent appearance on the Spout podcast, the hit singer talked about his obsession for Game of Thrones, which he developed during the lockdown period.

Describing the homebound months, Shawn said, “It was nice. It really became so important to just walk around. It was nice to feel a part of a home and have that daily routine like that.” Mendes also expressed his love for coffee, which acted as fuel for his exercise. “I was getting really into the coffee mug. I was like waking up in the morning and I was like, ‘What? Which coffee mug am I today? I was getting really technical about it and it was just like everything to me. You know, it was my home. I would go to bed super excited for that moment.”

GoT obsession

Talking about using time productively, Mendes explained that while his newest album Summer of Love kept him occupied for the better part of the summer, his Game of Thrones obsession inspired him to take up archery. Fan-boying over the show, Shawn said, “It was the most I’ve ever enjoyed watching TV in my life. So I’m not going to sit here and talk s**t about the final show because in the grand scheme of things that show was mind-blowing.” As for the archery, he added, “I think the real reality is that I struggle to put down the guitar and figure out what to do besides my job and besides music. I’m just completely obsessed with it.”
