Like so many who are breathlessly awaiting a final visit to the Seven Kingdoms on Sunday night, “Game of Thrones” superfan Aaron Rodgers can’t wait to see how HBO’s highly popular fantasy series concludes.
“I hope in typical ‘Thrones’ fashion, it ends with a couple twists that you don’t expect,” Rodgers, the Green Packers’ two-time NFL MVP quarterback, told USA TODAY Sports.
“As a lover of the twists in a show like this, I just think it’d be cool to have someone we don’t expect maybe sitting on that Iron Throne in the end.”
Rodgers himself had a cameo in the show’s penultimate installment, “The Bells,” when — spoiler alert!! — Daenerys Targaryen and her dragon, Drogon, reduced King’s Landing to an ash heap.
“I had a blast being over in Belfast and spending a day on set,” said Rodgers, who met actress Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and the “Thrones” writing team.
“Fun atmosphere. It’s been a great show. So many people love it, and I think the beauty of it is kinda like with ‘Lost’ — which is another one of my favorite shows — so many opinions about the episode, and how people think it should end.
