'Chasing Cars' singer films a cameo role on the racy fantasy TV show

Snow Patrol singer Gary Lightbody is to make a cameo appearance in Game Of Thrones.

The singer, not known for his acting ambitions, filmed his stint on the fantasy TV show yesterday (July 23). After completing his cameo, he posted a picture of himself in his medieval costume on Facebook and wrote: “So I did my scene this morning for Game Of Thrones. I looked like this. Can’t say much just it’s no pivotal role. Fun!”

However, Lightbody did not reveal the name of his character or whether his scene featured any of the show’s main cast members, who include Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Mark Addy and Lily Allen‘s brother Alfie Allen.

Snow Patrol are currently working on a follow-up to their 2011 album Fallen Empires. Last month (June), Lightbody revealed that the band have scrapped an entire album’s worth of songs in favour of new material that is “light years away ” from their previous hits.

The band are set to perform at a special concert in London’s Hyde Park to mark the opening of the Olympic Games on Friday (July 27). They are also scheduled to perform at V Festival on August 17 and 18, before embarking on a tour of Australia and North America through the autumn.
