According to Vanity Fair, Ed Sheeran will be making a cameo in the upcoming season of Game of Thrones. The news was revealed by show runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss at the Game of Thrones panel at the recent South by Southwest festival.
Weiss and Benioff stated that they have been trying to snag Sheeran for years as a way to surprise super-fan Maisie Williams (a.ka. Arya Stark), and finally secured the "Shape of You" singer for the upcoming seventh season.
"For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie, and this year we finally did it," announced Benioff and Weiss during the panel hosted by Williams and her onscreen sister, Sophie Turner.
