'There are a lot of musicians in the cast actually,' says Bran Stark actor Isaac Hempstead Wright
Game Of Thrones stars Dean-Charles Chapman and Isaac Hempstead Wright have spoken enthusiastically about making a musical episode of the fantasy series.
Buffy, the Vampire Slayer famously attempted a musical episode in 2001 and managed to pull it off. Speaking on the red carpet at last night’s NME Awards 2016 with Austin, Texas, the young Game Of Thrones actors said their cast mates also have the musical talent to smash a musical episode.
“It would be quite dark. There’d be a lot of deaths,” predicted Hempstead Wright, who plays Bran Stark on the show.
“I’d like to see that. Absolutely,” added Chapman, whose character Tommen Baratheon is expected to come to the fore during the new season.
“There are a lot of musicians in the cast actually, I’ve got to say,” Hempstead Wright continued. “I play the piano but we’ve got Nat Tena, who plays Osha, who’s in a band called Molotov Jukebox. Lots of people are in bands. So watch this space, maybe there’ll be a Game Of Thrones musical episode.”
The fantasy series has already attracted cameos from several stars of the music world, including The National, Wilko Johnson and Coldplay’s Will Champion. Check out 5 Bloody Rock Star Cameos From Game Of Thrones here.
