Ed Sheeran set to appear in Game Of Thrones

By Julia Hunt

Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran is to follow in the footsteps of Snow Patrol's Lightbody Lightbody and guest star in Game Of Thrones.

The Shape Of You singer will appear in the upcoming seventh series of the fantasy drama filmed in Northern Ireland.

Speaking at the South By Southwest Festival in Texas, show creator David Benioff said leading actress Maisie Williams is a fan. "For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie, and this year we finally did it," he said.

The star would not be the first musician on the show: Coldplay's Will Champion and Co Down singer Lightbody have appeared in previous episodes.
