Ed Sheeran will apparently be making his debut as an actor this year!
Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have confirmed this
Sunday during the SXSW that Sheeran will be making an appearance in the
upcoming season of the show.
Benioff told at the SXSW panel that they tried for years to get the Shape of You
singer on the show, because they wanted to surprise Maisie Williams (the actress
who plays Arya), who is a huge fan of Sheeran. “This year we finally did it”,
A spokesperson for HBO also confirmed the appearance but no further details
have been given on the role the singer will play.
Just a couple of days ago it was revealed that the seventh season of Game of
Thrones will premiere on July 16, so Ed fans can mark the date already.
