As if we could get any more buzzed about the upcoming season of ‘Game of Thrones’, today we learnt that it turns out a familiar face is going to make a random cameo.
Ed Sheeran will make an appearance in the seventh season. Ed – BLOODY – Sheeran. The news was announced Sunday at SXSW Festival in Texas by series showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
The cameo was organised as it was revealed GoT star Maisie Williams – who appeared on the panel alongside and Sophie Turner – is a massive fan of the British hit-maker.
“For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie, and this year we finally did it,” Benioff said during the panel.
While there are no details yet regarding Sheeran’s character or what his storyline might involve, HBO have confirmed the cameo, saying: “He has a role. No more details”. They weren’t exactly chatty about it.
The series return on July 16 can’t come any sooner…
