Ed Sheeran is not the first musician to appear in Game of Thrones.

It is now confirmed; Ed Sheeran will make a cameo appearance in the seventh series of Game of Thrones.

David Benioff and Dan Weiss said they’d been trying to book him for a while, when they spoke at the SXSW film festival in Texas. When Ed then tweeted «guess the cat’s out the bag», it’s reasonable to assume that he in a way confirmed the rumor himself. Still, it’s not clear what role Ed Sheeran will have in the show.

The panel at SXSW also featured stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams.

It was suggested that the Ed Sheeran booking was made as a surprise for Maisie because she’s a big fan of the singer.

Ed’s not the first musician to appear in Game of Thrones.

Previous musical cameos have included members of Coldplay, Mastodon, Of Monsters and Men, and Sigur Ros.

There’s no confirmation if he’ll be performing, like Sigur Ros and Of Monsters and Men, or if he’ll even be recognisable on screen. So the fans just have to be patient.

When Mastadon appeared in the show they were transformed into zombified members of the Wildlings group.

David Benioff and Dan Weiss also confirmed the eighth and final season of the show will only contain six episodes, making it the shortest yet.

The seventh season of the fantasy drama television series Game of Thrones is set to premiere on HBO on July 16, 2017.

Unlike previous seasons, that all consisted of ten episodes, the seventh season will consist of only seven episodes.
