Much of the filming for the hit series occurs in McGregor’s homeland of Ireland, so it’s not hard for fans to believe the fighter will drop in for a quick cameo. After all McGregor has joined up with a Game Of Thrones star before. The professional fighter has previously been filmed sparring with Hafpor Julius Bjornesson, who plays “The Mountain” in the HBO show.
Will the fiery Irishman be the one who finally takes down Cersi Lannister’s seemingly immortal body guard? We’ll just have to wait and see. The seventh season is expected to air beginning in the Summer of 2017.
