In the latest episode of GoT, Aaron, 35, appeared as a Kings Landing extra who was running away from Daenerys Targaryen aka Emilia Clarke setting chaos to the streets with her fire burning dragon.

"It was just for a few seconds, but I'll always be thankful to have been on the penultimate episode of @gameofthrones," the Green Bay Packers quarterback wrote alongside a behind-the-scenes photo of him on set via Instagram.

Aaron’s teammates loved the cameo. "I was worried you might get eaten by Drogon since he likes eating goats," said former NFL player Tom Crabtree, referring to the "Greatest Of All Time" slogan on Instagram.
