JOHNSON COUNTY, Ky. (WOWK) – If you were one of 17.8 million people who watched the latest episode of “Game of Thrones,” you may have seen country music star and Johnson County, Kentucky native Chris Stapleton.
Stapleton appeared in the episode as wildling turned white walker. The country music star is a fan of the show and landed a guest spot, along with his bassist J.T. Cure and his tour manager.
After the episode aired, Stapleton shared a behind the scenes picture from set in Ireland on Instagram.
Stapleton’s wife, Morgane Stapleton, captured the exact moment of his “Game of Thrones” debut during the Battle of Winterfell.
Although his appearance was short and just a close up of his eyes opening, Stapleton told Rolling Stone it was worth it.
“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,” Stapleton said to Rolling Stone. “They were gracious enough to let me come participate that way.”
