Ed Sheeran is coming to the small screen! The singer is foraying into acting with an appearance on none other than Game of Thrones.

Show creator David Benioff announced it during a panel chat at the the 2017 South by Southwest Festival in Texas.

He explained he had been trying to get Ed, a fan of the fantasy drama, to make a cameo appearance for years, and his debut will feature in season seven.

"For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise (show regular) Maisie (Williams), and this year we finally did it," Benioff said.

Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is a huge fan of Sheeran. She moderated the panel chat with co-star Sophie Turner, who plays her sister Sansa on the show, and appeared excited when Sheeran's cameo was confirmed.

Sheeran won't be the first British musician to appear on Games of Thrones however, Coldplay‘s Will Champion and Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol have also landed cameo appearances in the past. 

Season seven of Game of Thrones will premiere this July.

Are you excited? We definitely are!
