GoT showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss made the announcement during a panel at the famed South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas on Sunday.
“For years we were trying to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie [Williams] and this year we finally did it,” Benioff said.
“A lot of [music artists] say they would they would like to [be on the show], and then we tell them [shooting a scene] is so boring,” Weiss added. “‘You’re gonna hate this — you’re going to be sitting around three days for 12 hours a day.’”
No word yet on any details surrounding Sheeran’s character or storyline.
It has been announced that Season 7 of HBO’s hit show is set to premiere July 16! Wooooohoooooo!
