Ed Sheeran appears on 'Game of Thrones'
LOS ANGELES - Ed Sheeran made a surprise appearance on the season seven premiere of Game of Thrones.
He captioned the Instagram post: "Throwback to the time I was a Lannister (sic)" While Sheeran character claimed the song was new, the lyrics actually appeared in author George R.R. Martin's third book of the saga, A Storm of Swords, as they were written by a singer, Symon Silver Tongue, who attempts to blackmail Tyrion Lannister over his relationship with prostitute Shae.
The British singer previously insisted "nothing exciting happens" during his brief appearance on the show.
It was revealed in March the Photograph hitmaker would have an appearance on the show because Maisie is a big fan of the award-winning singer.
Showrunner David Benioff said: "For years we were trying to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie and this year we finally did it."
