Winter is coming...which means we still have a long way to go before 'Game of Thrones' comes back into our lives. (Booo!) But have no fear my fellow lords and ladies - fans can still find ways to fill their daily dose of Westeros knowledge. Entertainment Weekly recently learned that the HBO show has cast the popular indie band Sigur Ros to appear sometime in the upcoming season.
As for exactly what the Icelandic bandmates' official roles will be, that is yet to be known (though they are a band, so there's a relatively good chance music may be involved). But regardless, filming is already underway with members Jón Þór “Jónsi” Birgisson, Georg Hólm and Orri Páll Dýrason currently shooting their appearance on the 'Thrones' set in Croatia.
This isn't the first time showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have nabbed musicians for guest appearances. Members of Coldplay and Snow Patrol have made minor cameos in previous seasons. The show also tapped The National and The Hold Steady to perform songs inspired by lyrics in George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire saga - more specifically in 'The Rains of Castamere' and 'The Bear and Maiden Fair,' respectively. Both tracks can be found on the 'Game of Thrones' soundtracks.
So what say you of this latest casting news? Will it be the greatest cameo in all the realm? How excited are you for Season 4? Also - is it spring yet?
'Game of Thrones' returns to HBO in spring 2014.
