The producers of Game of Thrones have confirmed that Grammy award winning artiste, Ed Sheeran would make a cameo in the upcoming seventh season of the HBO show.
The show’s creators, David Benioff and DB Weiss, revealed Sheeran’s involvement during an event at the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. They added that they had been after Sheeran for some time because actress Maisie Williams, 19, who plays Arya Stark, is a huge fan. “For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie, and this year we finally did it,” Benioff said.
Sheeran as well confirmed the news as reports started to appear online by tweeting “guess the cat’s out the bag”.
At the moment, it’s not clear what role he’ll have in the show.
The producers also confirmed that the eighth and final season of the show will only contain six episodes, making it the shortest yet.
