Ed Sheeran Reportedly Wants a Role on “Game of Thrones”

Ben WattsCould Ed Sheeran be coming to Westeros? According to British tabloid The Sun, the singer wants a part on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Ed, who’s a huge fan of the show, will reportedly be “hounding” producers to appear on the show.

“There were talks ages ago of me being an extra, which could have been cool,” The Sun quotes Ed as saying. “But every time they shoot it’s the time I tour in the UK.”

This year, though, the timing might work out. “But I’ve got that time off this year, so I’m going to hound them,” Ed reportedly said.

Music stars have made cameos on the show before, so Ed might have a shot. Coldplay drummer Will Champion and Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody each appeared on the show in 2013.

Last week, Ed was gifted a replica of Jon Snow’s sword by a New Zealand radio station. His excited reaction was captured on video, and he called the sword “one of the best birthday presents” he ever received.

Game of Thrones just debuted its fifth season last Sunday.
