It turns out that David Beckham is a massive Game of Thrones stan just like we are.
The soccer star couldn't hide his excitement while meeting the hit show's actor John Bradley, known to all of us GoT fans as Samwell Tarley. He documented their chance run-in for Instagram on Sunday and showed there's absolutely nothing wrong with being the ultimate fan girl. Both Bradley and Beckham suited up for the occasion.
"This man is a maester, he knows things ... Was tempted to ask for a little clue into what's next but was too star struck #gameofthrones," is how Beckham captioned the photo. This isn't the first time Beckham made his obsession with Game of Thrones clear. He caught some major shade for posting spoilers for the series back in August.

Season 8 of Game of Thrones doesn't start filming until later this month, so Beckham will have to sit tight like all of us until episodes tentatively air next summer. We hope he'll hunt down Jon Snow or Daenerys for his next fan girl moment.
As long as no spoilers are involved, we'll be pressing the like button.
Can't get enough Game of Thrones? They're waiting for you. [SOUND] [APPLAUSE] Well, apparently neither can HBO's programming president Michael Lombardo. Lombardo told reporters that he thinks Game of Thrones will run for eight seasons, and he would be willing to do more if showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are on board. That's actually a season beyond what Benioff and Weiss said they were shooting for last year. But thanks to the show's massive success, it seems HBO is all about Game of Thrones right now. 20 million people apparently tuned into the show last season, and the audience continues to grow. Or aren't we allowed our history? Lombardo said he would even be interested in a prequel series if he could get Benioff and Weiss on board. Saying, I think you're right, there's enormous storytelling to be mined in a prequel, if George and Dan and David decide they want to tackle that. But there don't seem to be any plans in motion right now. He said the show runners are currently focused on figuring out the remaining seasons of their current show. And, of course, since he was talking about Game of Thrones, he had to touch on whether John Snow is actually dead. "Dead is dead is dead." Lombardo said, which is starting to feel like a company line at this time. One of the show's directors responded the same way earlier this month>>. John Snow is deader than dead.>> However, no one seems convinces. Maybe, instead, everyone should be asking if John Snow will stay dead.
