Local Bard Ed Sheeran Will Sing for Arya on Game of Thrones

Watch out for those swords, Ed!

Recently, Ed Sheeran took some time out of his busy injury schedule to film a cameo in the upcoming seventh season of Game of Thrones. Sheeran already looks like he could play any number of bedraggled medieval characters but, in a recent radio interview, the singer revealed that he will, in fact, be playing a singer on the show. “I just do a scene with Maisie [Williams, who plays Arya],” he said. “I sing a song and then she goes, ‘Oh, that’s a nice song.’” Williams is a big Sheeran fan and, as the cast revealed at their SXSW panel, the cameo was designed to be a surprise for her. We hope that Sheeran gets a tattoo to honor the experience, and that, inspired by Saoirse Ronan, Maisie Williams misspells it.
