Did You See Chris Stapleton’s Cameo on “Game of Thrones”?
If you watched every single second of “Game of Thrones” on Sunday . . . and I know you did . . . then you saw CHRIS STAPLETON, even if you didn’t realize it.
He played a Wildling-turned-White-Walker, and there was a brief shot of him on the ground as Jon Snow attempts to charge the Night King outside of Winterfell. Chris’s wife Morgane posted a photo and a clip.
Chris talked about how it happened. Quote, “I was like, I would gladly fly to wherever in the world just to be a small part and get to watch that show going down. They were gracious enough to let me come participate that way.”
Even though he barely moved, he did get coached on his Hollywood moment. Quote, “They knew we weren’t actors. So the direction was basically, ‘we’re going to place you, and when we tell you to, open your eyes.’
“And they trained us on how White Walkers are supposed to stand up and move when they’re first waking up. We had a crash course in that.” Chris’s bass player and tour manager were also in it. (Rolling Stone)
