Mac From ‘It’s Always Sunny’ Had A One-Second Cameo In ‘Game of Thrones’ And You Definitely Missed It

If you like TV, you know there’s nothing more exciting than a crossover episode of your favorite shows. Seriously, what’s better than seeing the two worlds combine—especially when they have nothing to do with each other. If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, you’ll be pleased to know you may have missed out on an iconic cameo during Episode 1 of Season 8 last Sunday.

After the premiere, Rob Mcelhenney—who plays Mac on It’s Always Sunny—shared this photo of himself as an extra on the season premiere

In case you missed the scene, he was one of the guys who got shot in the back of the head with an arrow by Theon when he was trying to redeem himself and save his sister, Yara.


After sharing the image on Instagram, some of his It’s Always Sunny co-stars left some love on his pic.

Like Glenn Howerton aka Dennis:

And, of course, The Waitress:

Some people who watched the episode did actually notice that the sailor looked similar to Mac.

As it turns out, a lot of people did miss the one-second cameo. But, when they found out, they were all too excited.

As it turns out, Mac wasn’t the only cameo in the episode. As it turns out, another familiar face was featured as one of Theon’s victims—Martin Starr, from Silicon Valley. He was shot with an arrow immediately following Rob.


Looks like Game of Thrones is looking to get us at literally every single moment this season. Better keep our eyes peeled.
