Did Game of Thrones star, Liam Cunningham let his Star Wars casting slip in a recent interview with EW?

George Lucas dropped in on the set of Game Of Thrones for a visit some months back. A journalist from EW followed up on that visit and chatted with members of the cast. When Cunningham was asked about what Benioff and Wise could bring to the Star Wars franchise, here’s what he had to say.

Dan and David are brilliant at surprises and can transfer the demographic from this show to that [franchise]. They’re incredible at adapting a world and making it their own and they could add a layer of complexity to it. I’d love it if they gave me some words to say, though I’d probably just be in a helmet.
