And it’s all thanks to the hero(in) that is Maisie Williams
The 26-year old ‘Shape of You’ hit maker has been officially confirmed for a cameo role in Game of Thrones’ upcoming seventh series.
Show creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss in a panel discussion in Texas at South By Southwest Festival gave us more reason to look forward to July 17th.
Not only is the final season of GoT premiering on this date but we’re gonna see our fav Ginger hair singer Ed Sheeran in it too.!!
They’ve been trying to book the hitmaker for quite some time, to surprise Maisie Williams (who plays Arya Stark) as she’s a big fan of Ed’s. “We knew that Maisie was a big fan of Ed Sheeran, so for years we tried to get Ed on the show so we could surprise Maisie, and this year we finally did it,” he revealed.
The Q&A was moderated by Thrones stars Maisie & Sophie and Benioff noted that Williams was the reason they wanted the “Shape of You” singer for a guest role in the first place.
#Sheeran for the iron throne!
