Ed Sheeran will guest star in Game of Thrones season 7
Producers have confirmed that Ed Sheeran will appear in the upcoming season of Game of Thrones this summer.
The HBO series will finally return this July and, as if fans weren’t excited enough already, producers have now announced that Ed Sheeran will guest star in season seven.
Ahead of the premiere episode on July 16, Game of Thrones showrunners have revealed that the singer will make a surprise guest appearance at some point during the new instalment. Speaking at a SXSW film panel, David Benioff and Dan Weiss confirmed the exciting cameo, admitting they had sought the star out to please Game of Thrones cast member Maisie Williams, who is a self-confessed Sheeran fangirl.
Benioff revealed: “For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie.
“And this year we finally did it.”
We’re yet to find out exactly what role he will be taking on, but Sheeran did appear to confirm the casting news on Twitter last night (March 12).
The “Shape of You” singer wrote: “guess the cat’s out the bag…”
