TEXAS star Sharleen Spiteri has revealed Game of Thrones actor Rory McCann is every bit as good with a pair of drumsticks as he is with a sword.

The 6ft 6in giant played drums on new single Tell That Girl and Sharleen says The Hound is a natural.

She says: “The Hound gets involved like anyone gets involved in a Texas video, it’s normally because they’re mates.

“Rory came into to see us in rehearsals, and I said why not be in our video.

“He’s a good musician and we said he should play drums or whatever and just be in there, so that people would see it and just be like, is that Rory McCann?

“Trust me, if you can make a video fun it’s good.”

And Rory took along some memorabilia from the hit show.

Sharleen added: “He brought his big helmet he wears on Game of Thrones – it weighed so much, it’s so heavy.

“He’s gigantic, I think he might be 7ft 5in, not 6ft 5in.

“My favourite thing is that he sings backing vocals in the video too.

“That cracks me up because we never asked him to do that, he was just going for it. The best laugh was at one point we had him do one take on his own and he was amazing.”

Sharleen was at The Barrowlands to promote the Texas & the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra gig which takes place tomorrow.

This unmissable collaboration will be broadcast live on BBC Radio Two and BBC Radio Scotland tonight with highlights on BBC Two Scotland next Friday.
