The singer will appear in the seventh season of Game of Thrones. And it was all thanks to Maisie Williams.
Because celebrities are also hardened fans of Game of Thrones. Series creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss announced during a panel moderated by Maisie Williams at the South By Southwest Festival that musician Ed Sheeran will have a special participation in the seventh And penultimate season of the series. And this we should thank Maise Wiliams, aka Arya Stark.
The racket around the 7th season of Game of Thrones continues to grow. Three months late, four chapters less than usual and a recent teaser have made it melt ice in Westeros. Now to top it all, it is announced that a singer will appear in the next season: Ed Sheeran.
But if the ad is happy to fans of GOT and those of the singer, no one should be happier than Sheeran himself. The English singer is a die-hard fan of the series. So being able to participate with a character and ride the penultimate train must be a dream come true for him.
Sheeran received the sword of Jon Snow as a gift some time ago during an interview on a radio program, and its reaction was the one of a child when it receives its favorite toy.
The singer announced his participation in the expected 7 season of the series during a concert in Austin, Texas in the company of the Actresses Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner. Executive producer David Benioff commented that for years, they have tried to have Ed Sheeran appear on the show to surprise Maisie, and this year they finally got it.
So far, HBO executives have maintained total secrecy and have not revealed any details about the weight or characteristics of the character who will play the singer.
Although the announcement was made last weekend, Sheeran advanced a track from the beginning of the month through a tweet where he put the word got (also an abbreviation for the title of the series) in bold. Since then, her fans have responded with a shower of tweets with that highlighted word giving way to what looks like a trend we might call got tickets to Ed Sheeran. A good way to get into the world of GOT, Sheeran!
