Ed Sheeran will be in the new series of Game of Thrones

Not content with taking the music world by storm, Ed Sheeran will be appearing in the new season of one of the biggest shows on TV.

Producers of Game of Thrones have confirmed he will appear in the new series.

Showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss were speaking at a panel at South by South West where they were joined by 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.

No other details about Sheeran’s character or storyline were revealed, but network HBO have confirmed the role.

The duo also confirmed that season eight will be just six episodes and that HBO are considering a spin-off of the show.

“We’ve talked about this, that we should all go on and do different things,” co-creator Benioff said. “I think HBO may well do a spin-off, but I think they should get new blood in.”
