Former CIA deputy director David Cohen had a brief cameo on the latest episode of HBO’s “Game of Thrones."

Cohen appeared in the hit series in a soup line at the fortress of Winterfell in Sunday’s episode, prompting the agency to tease his appearance on Twitter.


“As Arya might say, a man has no name,” Cohen responded, referencing one of the series’ breakout characters, Arya Stark, who assumes the faces of others to carry out assassinations.

“Way to blow my cover,” he later quipped.
