Aaron Rodgers traded in his football jersey for war gear to make an appearance in last night’s episode of “Game of Thrones.”
The Green Bay Packers quarterback played a Lannister soldier, and he was spotted by many.
Did you see him? He was in a lineup to fight against Daenerys Targaryen’s army. Check out the tweet below if you missed it. The athlete is right in the middle.
Rodgers, who’s a big fan of the HBO series, confirmed his cameo in an Instagram post. He uploaded a picture of himself in his costume and captioned it, “It was just for a few seconds, but I’ll always be thankful to have been on the penultimate episode of @gameofthrones.”
Over the last few weeks, he’s given quite a few hints that he’d be on the show.
During the Kentucky Derby, a reporter asked him which cameos he’d like to do in TV and film. He answered, “episode 5, ‘Game of Thrones,’” People reported.
He also tweeted a cryptic message last month with the hashtag “#episode5shouldbegood.”
