Ed Sheeran spills the beans on his Game Of Thrones cameo

The Shape Of You star is stepping out in a different direction later this year.

Ed Sheeran has revealed that he will sing in his forthcoming cameo appearance in hit TV series Game Of Thrones

It was already confirmed that the chart-topping musician would have a brief stint in the fantasy drama programme, and he has now shared that his character will be a friend of Arya Stark, played by Maisie Williams.

Ed told The Hits Radio: “I just do a scene with Maisie.

“I sing a song and then she goes, ‘oh, that’s a nice song’.”

In March, the show’s creators David Benioff and DB Weiss revealed Ed had been cast in Game Of Thrones.

They revealed they had pursued the Shape Of You hit-maker for some time because Maisie was a fan and was keen for him to appear.

The 26-year-old is following in the footsteps of fellow musicians Wilko Johnson (formerly of Dr Feelgood), Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol and Will Champion of Coldplay in having a cameo in the series.

Game Of Thrones returns in July.
