Red-headed scamp Ed Sheeran is making the rounds promoting his new album, Divide, and he seems to have let slip a little bit about his much-anticipated cameo on the upcoming season of Game of Thrones.
“I just do a seen with Maise [Williams],” Sheeran reveals, “I don’t really know what I’m allowed to say.”
He adds, “I sing a song and then she [Arya] goes, ‘Oh, that’s a nice song,’ and I go, ‘It’s a new one’ and then there’s other lines.”
Okay, so it’s possible Sheeran’s being a bit cheeky here. “Oh, that’s a nice song,” doesn’t exactly ring true as a typical Game of Thrones line, but maybe Arya’s busy stabbing someone with Needle when it happens.
Or, maybe, it could be true! We already know that Sheeran’s appearance is because Maise’s a Sheeran Superfan and he doesn’t die, so maybe we’ll get a Sheeran-sung version of “The Rains of Castamere” while Arya drowns her sorrows in a tall glass of Dornish wine.
