Man of the moment, Ed Sheeran is to make a surprise cameo appearance in 'Game of Thrones', it has just been confirmed.
The show's producer has revealed that they desperately wanted to get Ed on the show because cast member Maisie Williams is such a huge fan of his music.
“For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie (Williams)... And this year we finally did it," the show's producer David Benioff confirmed while speaking on a SXSW film panel.
Ed Sheeran took to Twitter last night to say, "guess the cat's out of the bag," to confirm that he will appear in the seventh series of the HBO fantasy drama, which returns to TV screens in July.
But Sheeran won't be the first musician to make a cameo in 'Game of Thrones' - already our very own Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol, Will Champion of Coldplay, Mastodon, Of Monsters and Men, and Sigur Ros have all appeared on the show.
