Ed Sheeran has been cast in a small role on the upcoming season of “Game of Thrones,” and if you’re anything like me, you’re scratching your head right now and asking: OK, but why?
According toRolling Stone, the singer was invited to the set as a surprise for Maisie Williams, aka Arya Stark. And since he was already there, the 26-year-oldended up filming a small, unspecified role.

“Game of Thrones” actually has a history of recruiting musicians for small, unrecognizable appearances on the show, including members of Coldplay and Of Monsters and Men. The HBO show is also known for killing off any person who is extremely attractive (My heart yearns for you, Robb!).
Thanks for giving us something we didn’t want, “Game of Thrones”! At least Arya got to have a small moment of happiness.
