Did You Spot The Coldplay Cameo In "Game Of Thrones" Red Wedding?

It was very brief, but still.

Admittedly it wasn’t the most dramatic thing that happened in that extraordinary episode, and it only lasted a second. Even so, a cool little easter egg for eagle-eyed viewers: one of the musicians playing during the wedding feast at the home of Walder Frey was Coldplay drummer Will Champion.

Recognise him?

It’s not the first time a musician has appeared in a cameo role on Game Of Thrones. Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody popped up briefly as a soldier, earlier in season three.

There are other musical connections, too. Theon Greyjoy is played by Alfie Allen, brother of Lily - she even wrote a song about him.

Plus, Bronn (Jerome Flynn) was in 90’s crooner duo Robson and Jerome, and both Osha (Natalia Tena) and Ser Ilyn (Wilko Johnson) are in bands. She plays accordion in Molotov Jukebox, while he plays guitar in pub rock group Dr Feelgood.
