Robert Plant Refused To Join Game Of Thrones

Robert Plant recently spoke about Led Zeppelin’s iconic ‘Immigrant Song’ and revealed that he has been offered a role in the worldwide known HBO series, Game of Thrones. The singer didn’t want to be involved in the show for many reasons.

The ‘Immigrant Song’ was released in 1970 and made a significant impression on the music world while elevating Led Zeppelin’s career. It includes Nordic mythology and refers to Vikings, musically indicating a thematic melody of Valhalla, a Nordic afterlife. Many projects in the media used the track, and the most important cinematic appearance it made is probably ‘Thor: Ragnarok.’

Game of Thrones is another famous TV show with Nordic Mythology elements. Its first episode aired in 2011, and its final episode came out in 2019. In a recent interview, Robert Plant reflected on whether he watched the TV show, and he replied by stating ‘No,’ but said they offered him a role in it.

The Led Zeppelin singer continued to state why while entertaining his audience. The rocker stated that he didn’t want to be a typecast and claimed that he started the Nordic themes and said that the media representations of these themes all owe their fame to ‘Immigrant Song’ because it started the craze.

When asked if he watched GOT, Plant replied:

“No. I got offered a part in that.”

Interviewer continued:

“And you said, No?”

Plant said:

“Yeah, well, I don’t want to be typecast. I mean, I started that sh*t! Go back to ‘Immigrant Song’ and Led Zeppelin being part of the cultural exchange in Iceland with the Icelandic government. So they didn’t know what they’d invited onto their little island.”
