Ed Sheeran is appearing in season seven of “Game Of Thrones.” Show runner David Benioff broke the news this weekend at a panel at the South by Southwest festival. He revealed that the show had been trying to get Ed into an episode for quite some time. That’s because Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark in the series, is a huge fan.
“We knew that Maisie was a big fan of Ed Sheeran and for years we’ve been trying to get him on the show so we can surprise Maisie,” David explained. “This year we finally did it.” Ed confirmed the news with a tweet.
Maisie plays the sister of Sophie Turner’s character, Sansa Stark. Sansa and Arya have been separated for years, but a reunion may be coming. There could be a couple of redheads in Arya’s storyline this year.
