Snow Patrol’s Lightbody lands cameo in cult medieval show
Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody has filmed a cameo in hit television series Game of Thrones. Lightbody filmed his role on on Monday and took to his Facebook page shortly after filming and posted a picture of himself in his medieval costume. ‘‘So I did my scene this morning for Game of Thrones. I looked like this. Can’t say much – just it’s no pivotal role. Fun!’’ Lightbody did not reveal the name of his character or whether his scene featured any of the show’s main cast members, who include Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Mark Addy and Lily Allen’s brother Alfie Allen. Snow Patrol is set to perform at a special concert in London’s Hyde Park to mark the opening of the Olympic Games on Friday. They will then travel to Australia in September off the back of their North American tour for a series of intimate theatre performances to showcase songs from their Fallen Empires album. The stripped back acoustic shows will see Gary, Nathan Connolly and Johnny McDaid return to Australia for the first time since 2009.
