Coldplay received some much-needed help with their Game of Thrones: The Musical production, with cast members from the HBO pitching in to sing the new tunes. Kit Harington (Jon Snow) rocked the microphone, singing “Wildling, you pull your bow string” (to the tune of “Wild Things”) to Rose Leslie (Ygritte). And when Chris Martin offered a little advice on how Kit could sing it a tad better, Rose told him off, saying, “You know nothing, Chris Martin.”
Next, Iwan Rheon who plays Ramsey Bolton – one of the most hated characters this season – teamed up with one of the characters he tortures in the series, Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy/Reek), to sing about being a bastard. Then came a rousing song about the Red Wedding with Harington, Leslie, Rheon, Allen, Mark Addy (Robert Baratheon), and John Bradley (Samwell Tarly). And Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) got into the act with “Rastafarian Targaryen” followed by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) seated at the piano for a ballad titled “Closer to Home” about Joffrey…”I was his uncle; I was also his dad.” Up next, Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) had the pleasure of running through a list of characters he’s outlived in “A Man for All Seasons (Still Goin’ Strong).”
Unfortunately, Game of Thrones: The Musical came to an abrupt end when George R.R. Martin wouldn’t sign on. But Coldplay and Chris Martin didn’t give up, turning their Game of Thrones production into Taken On Ice with Liam Neeson.
