GAME of Thrones and Westworld have very little in common – yet the two epic HBO dramas are set for a crossover nobody saw coming.
Westworld will return to screens later this month, with Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) embarking on a mission to topple the dastardly Delos Corporation, the founders of Host technology.
The official trailers have teased an almighty clash between Dolores and Maeve (Thandie Newton) following the infiltration of the human world – and suffice to say season 3 looks to be the most action-packed instalment yet.
However, in an unexpected twist it has now been confirmed that Game of Thrones bosses David Benioff and D B Weiss will feature in the show.
The pair will appear in a single episode as Delos technicians working in the conglomerate’s HQ.
While at first glance this may seem utterly random, George RR Martin, who penned the Song of Ice & Fire series upon which Game of Thrones is based, actually called for the crossover years ago.
Westworld producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy entertained the idea back in 2016, and four years later the cameo has finally received the green light.
"He's a lovely guy and a stunning writer and it's flattering he would encourage a crossover. We should be so lucky," Nolan said.
"We've got an awful lot of material to cover just with Westworld, but you want to stay tuned," she added.
Then in season 2, Westworld paid homage to the Westeros epic with a subtle Easter Egg.
