Season 7 of Game Of Thrones just got way more badass.
Earlier this week, rumors circulated that Conor McGregor had been offered a cameo on the HBO series, and on Thursday UFC president Dana White confirmed the news. In an interview with Fox Sports 1 White said “I knew that a few months ago that they were interested in putting him in the show. And I’m glad he did it. It’ll be great.”
According to a report on the “Game of Thrones” site Watchers on the Wall, McGregor is set to play a soldier on a vessel called “Silence” that is captained by King of the Iron Islands, Euron Greyjoy.
In the original source material by George R.R. Martin, The “Silence” is manned by a pirate crew that have all had their tongues cut out by Euron Greyjoy, effectively making soldiers mute and unable to voice an opinion against their captain.
This could be a big acting challenge for the famously talkative fighter.
