He also vows to work with Taylor Swift

Ed Sheeran has revealed the nature of his role in the upcoming ‘Game Of Thrones’ season seven, as well as discussing future projects in film and with Taylor Swift.

Last month, producers confirmed that the ‘Shape Of You’ singer would be making a cameo in the hit fantasy show – partly to surprise actress and super-fan Maisie Williams.

Now in conversation with Tom Green from The Hits Radio, Sheeran has opened up about his experience in the series.

Describing a ‘star struck moment’, Sheeran said: “Taking a pee next to Kit Harrington before I knew him, obviously being a big ‘Game of Thrones’ fan.”

As for his upcoming cameo, Sheeran said: “I just do a scene with Maisie. I sing a song and then she goes, oh, that’s a nice song.”

Speaking of his part in GoT earlier this month, Sheeran said: “I do know which role I am going to play. I don’t die in it, I don’t die. I’m only in it for like five minutes.”

After revealing that his character doesn’t experience a grizzly fate, Sheeran continued: “I’d probably prefer to have sex than die in the show. I’m sure a lot of people are into that but I’m not.”

And as for whether or not he’ll ever collaborate with Taylor Swift, he added: “Eventually. We have spoken…There’s always been a plan to but I’ve just brought out an album. I believe she’s working on one. Yeah, we’re gonna.”
