Fans were thrilled to fine out that mega pop star Ed Sheeran will be making a special appearance in one of the biggest show on television.
During a recent interview, the 26-year-old British singer spilled the details behind his dream role in the forthcoming “Game of Thrones” season 7.
“I just do a scene with Maisie. I sing a song and then she goes, ‘oh, that’s a nice song’,” Sheeran told Tom Green on The Hits Radio via Heat World. However, the flame-haired songwriter remained tight-lipped about the songs’ lyrics and any further details about it.
“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,” creator David Benioff previously shared. In case you didn’t know, Williams is a super fan of Sheeran and has been trying to get the performer on the show for quite some time now.
Sheeran had already admitted that his role – which lasts approximately 5 minutes – in the series does not die. He went on to confess that he would “prefer to have sex” as opposed to meeting a gruesome end.
“Game of Thrones” season 7 will premiere on Monday, 17th July on HBO (Astro Ch 411 / 431) the same day as the U.S. The series will also be available on Astro On The Go.
