With only 76 more days until the season premiere of Game of Thrones, the cast has remained tight-lipped about any plot details from the upcoming season — with the exception of new GoT Season 7 cast member Ed Sheeran. The singer is slated to make a guest appearance and revealed a bit about his time on the show in a new interview with The Hits Radio.
He revealed that his appearance in the series is a single scene with Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark. Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss confirmed Sheeran’s cameo early this year, due to Williams being such a big fan.
Did Ed just spoil some *real* GoT dialogue? We kid, but we hope to get a sneak peak of the scene soon!
Sheeran isn’t the first musician to appear in the series. Coldplay drummer and GoT superfan Will Champion made an appearance as a musician during the infamous Red Wedding episode in season three. Animal Circus’s Joel Fry also appeared in a number of episodes as Hizdahr zo Loraq, and members of Mastodon made cameos as wildlings, and their song “White Walker” was used to promote the fifth season.
We can’t wait to learn more about Sheeran’s cameo from Williams, as we’re sure she was *thrilled* to have him on set for a day. Maybe he performed “Perfect?”
