Foals’ Jack Bevan and Jimmy Smith were filmed for the latest ‘Game of Thrones’ episode: “Cheers to the best show of all time!”

"Sadly, I don’t think we survived the night"

Foals drummer Jack Bevan and guitarist Jimmy Smith have revealed that they appeared as extras in the latest episode of Game of Thrones. Check out the images below.

The third instalment of the hit fantasy show’s final season aired on Sunday (April 28). ‘The Long Night’ featured the long-awaited Battle of Winterfell as its centrepiece, which was reportedly one of the longest and most expensive battle scenes to ever be depicted in either TV or film.

Following its airing, Bevan and Smith both took to Instagram to reveal that they played a part in the dramatic outing.


Posting an image of himself in GoT wig and costume, Bevan explained that Foals’ manager “managed to get a lovely crew of us all into the Battle of Winterfell.”


While revealing his character’s fate, the musician added: “Sadly, I don’t think we survived the night. It really was one of the coolest experiences I’ve had. Cheers to the best show of all time!”

Smith later shared a photo of himself in a wig, with his face covered in blood. “Thanks for the wig bitches, Take a walk on the wildling side,” he captioned the post. “Thanks for having me Game Of Thrones, was suitably [mindblown].”

It is currently unclear whether the rest of the band were also involved in the episode.

Back in 2017, Ed Sheeran made a brief cameo in the HBO series. As the final season kicked off earlier this month, the pop star’s character’s fate was finally confirmed on screen.

Meanwhile, Foals have recently been added to the line-up Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2019. The group, who are continuing to showcase ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost: Part 1‘, will also play a tiny show at next month’s Great Escape Festival.
