There has been a handful of artists that have landed a cameo role in Game of Thrones. The most recent one to be reported is none other than Ed Sheeran.
Funnily enough, unlike with other artists who have had reported roles in the series, some fans have started wondering if Sheeran will end up as one of the most shocking deaths in the series.
Apparently not, since Sheeran himself hinted at the kind of cameo he’ll be doing in Game of Thrones. Sheeran spoke with Heat World, where he revealed the moment when he would appear in the series:
“I just do a scene with Maisie. I sing a song and then she goes, oh, that’s a nice song."
This is pretty accurate with his previous statement about his cameo. In a separate interview, he already teased that he won’t die in the show. reiterating this, he even said that he would “prefer to have sex than die in the show,” so we know that he’s not lying about that tidbit.
But if his previous statement is any indication about the accuracy of his appearance, it’s possible that he’ll perform a song for quite a while onscreen, since his estimated screen time is around five minutes.
Even with that short cameo, I’d be pretty happy to check out Sheeran’s role. The costume alone would make it worth watching that episode.
Game of Thrones will be back on HBO this July.
