Game of Thrones is one show that people just can’t seem to wait for and more so for the show’s upcoming seventh season. It is not just that the next season will focus on the coveted confrontation of Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister but because it features one very special guest appearance. Grammy Award-winning artist Ed Sheeran is all set to join the cast of HBO’s super hit series. But, what would be his role? Luckily, Sheeran has revealed some details about his character on the show.
During a recent interview, the 26-year-old singer revealed that he is going to have a minor role in season 7. “I do know which role I am going to play,” he said. And then, he said something that gave us all the happiness in the world. He said, “I don’t die in it, I don’t die.” That’s another reason why one should look out for the upcoming season. Although, it might have been kind of cool to watch him get his throat slit or get his guts split or something. MIGHT.
“I’m only in it for like five minutes,” Sheeran went on for quite a while about his role. “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.”
Sheeran also stated that he has always wanted to be a part of the show. “My friend (Gary Lightbody) guested in it in 2012 and I remember I was on tour with him and he was like: ‘Right, I’ve got a guest slot on Game Of Thrones.’ I remember saying: ‘You got to get me on it at some point.’.”
Game of Thrones season 7 is all set to premiere on July 16, 2017.
