Pop star has a recurring role in new FX series from creator of 'Sons Of Anarchy'
Ed Sheeran orders the removal of another man’s eye in his grisly cameo on US TV show The Bastard Executioner.
Sheeran appeared in the fourth episode of the series, which aired on FX in the US last night (September 29). He played Sir Cormac, an assistant to a powerful priest, and ordered a third man to cut out a prisoner’s eye with his knife in a particularly gory scene.
The singer-songwriter will appear in a recurring role on the forthcoming series from the creator of Sons Of Anarchy, which is billed as a “blood-soaked medieval epic”. Sheeran’s co-stars in the series include Sons Of Anarchy‘s Katey Sagal and former True Blood actor Stephen Moyer.
The Bastard Executioner marks Sheeran’s second collaboration with Sons Of Anarchy‘s creator Kurt Sutter. The singer previously recorded a cover of Foy Vance’s ‘Make It Rain’ for the season finale of Sons Of Anarchy last December.
Earlier this year Sheeran revealed that he was intending to “hound” the makers of Game Of Thrones for a guest role on the show. The ‘Thinking Out Loud’ singer has already made guest appearances on Neighbours and Sesame Street, but had to pass on a Game Of Thrones cameo three years ago because the show’s shooting schedule clashed with his live shows.
