Champion appears as a drummer in an episode that airs in the UK this evening (June 3)
Coldplay drummer Will Champion has made an appearance in Game Of Thrones. See above for a clip of his cameo on the hit US fantasy show.
Champion appears briefly as a drummer in a rowdy banquet scene and isn’t required to utter any lines. His role in the US fantasy series was revealed last November and his episode aired in the US last night (June 2). UK viewers can catch his cameo when the episode airs on Sky Atlantic at 9pm tonight (June 3).
Champion isn’t the only rock star to pop up on Game Of Thrones recently. Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody made an appearance as a soldier in an episode that aired in April.
Coldplay wrapped up their last world tour in New York on New Year’s Eve (2012) and are now believed to be working on their sixth album. Their last LP, ‘Mylo Xyloto’, came out in October 2011 and went on to sell over eight million copies worldwide.
