Ed Sheeran

Famous Game of Thrones Cameos

Ok, so this is one of the famous Game of Thrones cameos that no one missed. In season 7, the famous musician made an appearance during the season’s debut episode entitled Dragonstone. In it, he sings a song which Arya Stark (portrayed by Maisie Williams) compliments him on. He was given the cameo because Maisie Williams is a major fan of his and the showrunners reportedly wanted to surprise her.

Rob McElhenney

You may know him best for his role as Mac in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.


In the first episode of season 8 of Game of Thrones, he portrays the role of an Ironborn who gets snuffed by Theon Greyjoy (portrayed by Alfie Allen).

Bonus: Martin Starr from Silicone Valley was also one of the famous Game of Thrones cameos to die in the above scene where Theon saves his sister Yara (portrayed by Gemma Whelan).

Will Champion

Coldplay drummer, Will Champion is in one of the most dramatic Game of Thrones episodes ever. He is seen beating a drum in season 3’s The Red Wedding. The band went on to create a Game of Thrones musical in support of Red Nose Day, which you can check out below.

So, the former president of the USA wasn’t actually on the HBO show. But a prosthetic of his head was famously mounted at King’s Landing in the first season, making it one of the most controversial famous Game of Thrones cameos to date.  The Game of Thrones showrunners have since apologised. And just like the Starbucks cup that recently made a cameo on the show, the prosthetic has been removed from the scene.

Chris Stapleton

The country musician is a huge fan of the show and did a cameo as a White Walker in the final season of Game of Thrones.


He apparently reached out to the showrunners of Game of Thrones to request a guest appearance on season 8 of the show. He was one of the many White Walkers to be featured in the final season of the popular show, and if you blink, you’ll miss him in The Long Night – which was episode 3 of the final season of Game of Thrones.
