This is not something any Game of Thrones fan would have ever expected… It was revealed over the weekend that Ed Sheeran will guest star on the show’s upcoming seventh season. “For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie [Williams], and this year we finally did it,” David Benioff said during a panel at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, on Sunday. While no other details about about Sheeran’s role were revealed, past musical guest star cameos include Snow Patrol singer Gary Lightbody, Mastodon, Coldplay drummer Will Champion, and Sigur Rós. Benioff also announced that the eighth and final season consists of six episodes, departing from the series’ usual 10-episode order.
