Aaron Rodgers explains 'Game of Thrones' cameo: 'I'll always be thankful'

Aaron Rodgers Appears as Soldier in 'Game of Thrones' Cameo

Rodgers has been a fan of "Game of Thrones" from the beginning. Yet, while all the action plays out onscreen, an National Football League star manages to make a quick cameo before suffering the tragic same fate as most of King's Landing.

That's because Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers made a brief cameo as a Lannister army archer in Sunday's episode.

Game Of Thrones is now in its eighth and final season with fans going absolutely bonkers over the last few episodes and the plot lines that have been coming to a close. Something tells us any fan would appreciate a dramatic Game of Thrones entrance (and exit) like his.

The two-time MVP hinted at his role in late April via Twitter, giving fans fair warning to pay attention for episode five of the show's eighth and final season. His team, the Green Bay Packers, hyped tonight's episode with a tweet of its own suggesting Rodgers would have a cameo.

As for the fate of Rodger's character, it's likely he ended up a pile of ash like most of King's Landing after Daenerys and Drogon blazed their way through the city.

Rodgers himself touted the appearance on Instagram.
