SPOILER ALERT! This post is about the 4/28 episode of Game of Thrones - the Battle of Winterfell and if you haven’t watched yet .. you've been warned 

 

There were hundreds and hundreds of extras on this past week's episode of Game of Thrones... most of them died in the Battle of Winterfell....like The Night King, Theon Greyjoy, Jorah Mormont, Melisandre, Eddison Tollett, Beric Dondarrion (and his flaming sword), Lyanna Mormont ... but while you were busy trying to adjust the brightness on your TV - you might have missed the latest celebrity / musician cameo on the show! 

 

Country singer Chris Stapleton, along with his bass player J.T. Cure and their tour manager, played some of the many fallen Winterfell soldiers that the Night King turned into his zombie White Walkers at the Battle of Winterfell.

 

Stapleton told Rolling Stone

“I was like, you know, I would gladly fly to wherever in the world just to be a small part and get to watch that show going down...They were gracious enough to let me come participate that way.  They knew we weren’t actors, so the direction was basically, we’re going to place you, and when we tell you to, open your eyes. And they trained us on how White Walkers are supposed to stand up and move when they’re first waking up. We had a crash course in that.” 

 

 

The scene was brief but Chris’ wife, Morgane, posted on instagram with a helpful freeze frame:
