Chart-topper Ed Sheeran finally made his Game of Thrones cameo in the show’s season seven premiere on Sunday night after months of hints about what the singer might do in the American fantasy series.
Not unsurprisingly, he was singing. Sheeran joins lesser-known artists such as Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody, Sigur Rós and Mastodon in appearing – and performing – in Westeros.
Some die-hard fans, such as those on the Game of Thrones Reddit forum, didn’t even recognise Sheeran.
Others delighted in the Shape of You’s presence in the show, especially in such proximity to Arya actress Maisie Williams, who inspired the show’s creators, DB Weiss and Daniel Benioff, to cast him as a surprise for her some years ago.
