Seems like UFC superstar Conor McGregor won’t be the only celebrity to guest-star in the seventh season of “Game of Thrones.”

Grammy Award-winning singer Ed Sheeran will make a cameo appearance in the fictional world of Westeros, as confirmed by showrunners  David Benioff and Dan Weiss.


During the Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, over the weekend, Benioff shared that Maisie Williams (who plays Arya Stark in the show) is the main reason they decided to cast the 26-year-old pop star.

“We knew that Maisie was a big fan of Ed Sheeran,” he said, as relayed by US Weekly. “So for years we tried to get Ed on the show so we could surprise Maisie, and we finally did it.”

Prior to being cast, Sheeran also revealed to Rolling Stone that he recently entertained several cast members of the show at his home in London.

Meanwhile, several high-profile musicians have also made guest appearances in the HBO hit in previous seasons, including Snow Patrol vocalist Gary Lightbody, Coldplay drummer Will Champion and the Icelandic rock band Sigur Rós.

Much like Season 7’s plot, Sheeran’s role has yet to be revealed. Game of Thrones Season 7 returns to HBO on July 16.  Khristian Ibarrola /ra
