SXSW 2017: ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 7 Will Feature An Ed Sheeran Cameo

Die hard Game of Thrones fans will know that there have been several instances throughout the run where well-known musicians made subtle appearances. And at SXSW 2017 today, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss revealed that this season is no different.

While neither made mention of the exact episode or scene, it was confirmed on stage that musician and adult-Ron Weasley lookalike Ed Sheeran will be making his way to Essos.

According to Benioff, the show had previously attempted to book Sheeran because actress Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) is apparently a huge fan.

Sheeran agreed to the cameo, as have many other musicians, despite the fact that the shoot is tedious and very boring, the showrunners explained.

Past musician cameos on Game of Thrones have included the metal band Mastodon (Season 5 Wildlings); Coldplay drummer Will Champion (he played the infamous “The Rains of Castamere” song during the Red Wedding); Snow Patrol lead singer Gary Lightbody, the band Sigur Rós, and Icelandic folk group Of Monsters and Men.
