Charlie Hunnam says he would love to have a cameo on Game of Thrones. Hunnam’s acting career has taken off in recent years, with him appearing in Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim and Crimson Peak, as well as James Gray’s The Lost City of Z and Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. His roots, though, will always be on television; he is known primarily for playing Jackson “Jax” Teller for seven seasons of FX’s Sons of Anarchy.
HBO will be airing the penultimate season of their hit fantasy drama, Game of Thrones, in just a few months. The show’s various storylines will finally come to a head before the series goes off the air next year, with its eighth season. But before that happens, we’re sure there are many actors and actresses who would like to leave their mark on Westeros – including Hunnam.
While doing press for his latest film, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Hunnam told The Sun that he was once approached about a cameo role on Game of Thrones, but he had to turn it down at the time due to a scheduling conflict. However, he would be open to doing a cameo now:
“I would love to do a Game of Thrones cameo, they offered me a cameo on that show a little while ago but I was shooting something else, so I wasn’t able to do it. But maybe in the future, who knows.”
Game of Thrones is no stranger to cameos. Some of the biggest names in Hollywood have appeared in the series. Artists from bands like Coldplay, Mastodon, and Of Monsters and Men have had cameos on the show, and Ed Sheeran recently described his cameo in the upcoming season. Just like Star Wars, there are possibly dozens of cameos that we may not be aware of.
Although fans of Game of Thrones are anxiously awaiting the series’ seventh season premiere this summer, the drama has been making headlines for other reasons. As the show begins to wind down, the network has commissioned four writers – Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Brian Helgeland (Legend), and Carly Wray (The Leftovers) – to conceive potential spinoff ideas. That doesn’t mean, however, that the network will pursue all of them – or any of them.
If Hunnam and HBO can’t work out a cameo role in Game of Thrones before the series ends next year, then perhaps the English actor would consider starring in one of the inevitable spinoff shows. He clearly has no interest in taking on a superhero role, and there has been a recent trend of big screen actors making their way onto the small screen. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens, though.
