Game of Thrones is welcoming an unlikely guest star in Season 7 in the form of singer Ed Sheeran.
The news was revealed at SXSW by Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss on a panel with Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner.
"For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie, and this year we finally did it," Benioff said during a panel at the Austin, Texas festival on Sunday, nodding to Williams who is a big fan of the musician.
No other details on Sheeran's character or storyline were revealed, but when Variety reached out to HBO for further clarification, a spokesperson for the network confirmed he'll be guest-starring, simply saying, "He has a role. No more details."
