We’ve known Winter is Coming for about 6 years and 6 seasons. Now, Winter has come but little did we know that Winter would bring Ed Sheeran along with it. Yes, you read that right.
Ed Sheeran is all set to set Season 7 on fire with his appearance!
The creators of the show, David Benioff and DB Weiss said that they had been trying for years to get Sheeran to come on the show and their reason for doing so will make your heart melt. Like every Game of Thrones fan, the creators love Arya the best too, who is a huge fan of Sheeran. To surprise her, the creators have been pursuing Sheeran for a long time and their prayers (along with Maise William’s dreams) have finally been answered!

The creators let the secret slip out while they were attending the South By Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas. Later, Ed Sheeran confirmed the news when he tweeted, “Guess the cats out the bag…”

Benioff said, “For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie, and this year we finally did it.” Although we have no further details about the role Sheeran will we playing, we can confirm one thing with utmost confidence, this season will be one of the greatest seasons of Game of Thrones!
The last time a musician made an appearance on the show, A LOT of people died. Hello? Have you forgotten Coldplay’s Will Champion’s appearance in The Red Wedding? *still sends shivers down our spines* Let’s just hope no heartbreaking deaths accompany Ed Sheeran’s appearance this season!
The first episode of Season 7 airs 16 July, 2017.
Like the teaser says, Winter Has Come.
