The singer-songwriter will make an appearance in the upcoming seventh season of the show

Ed Sheeran has revealed the details behind his cameo in the forthcoming new series of Game Of Thrones.

The singer-songwriter was previously confirmed to make an appearance in the fantasy show by showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, but no information about the nature of his contribution had been announced.

In a new interview with The Hits Radio, Sheeran gave fans more of an insight into what to expect from his role.

“I just do a scene with Maisie [Williams, who plays Arya Stark],” he said. “I sing a song and then she goes: ‘Oh, that’s a nice song’.”

As TIME reports, the musician’s cameo is something of a gift for Williams. Benioff revealed at the Game Of Thrones panel at South By South West’s film festival earlier this year: “For years we were trying to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie, and this year we finally did it.”
