Maisie Williams is screaming with joy because Ed Sheeran will be appearing in the next season of Game of Thrones.
The show runners David Benioff and Dan Weiss admit they’ve been chasing after Ed Sheeran for a while — Maisie is a huge fan and they finally made it happen for her. The show premieres its seventh season on July 16.
“For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie, and this year we finally did it,” told Benioff. Unfortunately nothing else has been said as far as his role in the series or who’s side he’ll be on.
Another big reveal includes that the eighth season will be the final season, which will only have six episodes, yes only six. Our time with the Seven Kingdoms is coming to a close, but let’s enjoy the remaining time we have with GoT.
Who will Ed Sheeran pick the side of? — the Starks or Westeros, perhaps ride along with Dothraki in Khaleesi’s army…
