In a recent interview with a Canadian Media outlet, the Golden God himself, Robert Plant revealed that he turned down a cameo role on HBO's Game Of Thrones years ago. A series the former Zeppelin singer says he's never watched. He jokingly replied that he didn't want to be "typecast". Plant goes on to remind the show's creators that he may have provided inspiration with a certain track on Led Zeppelin III.

"Go back to Immigrant Song, and Led Zeppelin being part of a cultural exchange in Iceland with the Icelandic government. So they didn’t really know what they’d invited onto their little island. So on the way back on the plane, I started thinking about... because I love Western European history from maybe the Bronze Age up through all the old religion. And so the Viking thing was obviously that whole idea of playing in Iceland and experiencing this amazing landscape and people."
