Mastodon Musicians Make Cameo Appearance In Game Of Thrones’ ‘Hardhome’ White Walker Battle Scene
Game of Thrones’ most recent episode “Hardhome” featured a momentous battle between the White Walkers and the Wildlings – plus Jon Snow – in which Mastodon band members made a cameo.
Mastodon’s ‘Game Of Thrones’ Cameo
Brann Dailor, Brent Hinds and Bill Kelliher of Mastodon all appeared as extras in the massive Wildling army in the dramatic Game of Thrones scene. Not only did they get to play the feral North of the Wall warriors, they got killed by the White Walkers and were reborn as blue-eyed wights.
“It was such an incredible experience to be on set as extras for our collective favorite show Game Of Thrones and to be wildlings murdered and then brought back to life by White Walkers was beyond amazing,” drummer Dailor said in a statement to Pitchfork.
“I watched my best friends Brent and Bill murdered right in front of me as I myself was stabbed in the stomach and had my throat slit multiple times, and I didn’t mind at all,” the Mastodon band member added.
Game of Thrones show-runner Dan Weiss had invited Mastodon to be a part of the epic scene after the group contributed an original song, “White Walker,” to the Thrones mixtape, Catch the Throne, Vol. 2.
“Yes, that was us on Game of Thrones tonight,” the group wrote on Facebook with a picture of Thrones stars Kit Harrington and Kristofer Hivju. “It was an incredible experience to be on set. Thanks to Dan Weiss, the cast and crew, and everyone else involved.”
