Ed Sheeran made a surprise appearance on the season seven premiere of Game of Thrones.
The Castle on the Hill hitmaker was known to have a cameo role in the seventh season of the HBO drama series, but it came sooner than many fans expected when his soldier alter ego – who was listed as “Man #1” – crossed paths with Arya Stark (Maisie Williams).
Arya was riding through the forest when she came across a group of Lannister soldiers singing. She asked the so-far unseen group what the “pretty song” was and the camera panned to Sheeran, who smiled and said: “A new one”.
She then dined with the group and they swapped stories, with the 26-year-old singer appearing prominently in most of the shots.
Sheeran had earlier teased his appearance on the show on social media. He tweeted: “Sunday = cat picture. Also, watch Game of Thrones tonight x”.
When the episode aired, he also shared a photo he’d taken of his own TV while he was on screen.
He captioned the Instagram post: “Throwback to the time I was a Lannister (sic)”
