Coldplay's Will Champion to Appear in 'Game of Thrones'
Coldplay drummer Will Champion tends to get overshadowed by the band's charismatic frontman, Chris Martin, but soon he'll get his own moment in the spotlight in the form of an appearance on the much-loved TV fantasy series Game of Thrones.

The specifics of Champion's appearance are still unclear, but Entertainment Weekly [via The Playlist] notes that Champion will be playing a role close his heart: a drummer.

Champion is the second successful British pop-rocker to sign on for the upcoming third season of Game of Thrones, as Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody was also recruited for a cameo that has yet to be detailed.

Season three of Game of Thrones is due to premiere on March 31 on HBO.
