Oh yes! Ed Sheeran has landed himself a cameo role in “Game of Thrones” season 7. Creators David Benioff and D.B Weiss revealed the exciting news at a South by Southwest (SXSW) panel on Sunday (12th March).
“For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie (Williams, who plays Arya Stark), and this year we finally did it,” Benioff said.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a spokeswoman for HBO confirmed the appearance but did not provide details about the British singer-songwriter’s character. Besides that, the showrunners have announced that “Game of Thrones” season 8 will only have a mere 6 episodes.
In the past, “Games of Thrones” has featured several musical guest stars. This includes members of Coldplay, Mastodon, OF Monsters and Men, and Sigur Rós. While it’s still unsure if the “Shape of You” singer will be singing onscreen, we’re still excited to see what can he bring to the story.
