Speaking on a panel at SXSW in Austin, series co-creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss confirmed that they had been trying to book the Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter for a while. The panel was moderated by the show’s own Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner who play sisters Arya and Sansa Stark on the show. Williams is a big Ed Sheeran fan and his appearance was rumored to be a surprise for her.
However, Sheeran is not the first musician to make a cameo on the show. Watch the video above to see some of the best rock-star cameos on Game of Thrones.
Season 7 of Game of Thrones premieres July 16.
