IT’S ED SHEERAN’S world and we’re all just living it.

Last night, Game of Thrones returned for its highly anticipated seventh season and who was spotted in it other than Ed Sheeran.

The actor, who has long been rumoured to make an appearance in the fantasy series, popped up last night as a soldier leading a singalong at a campfire. (Because if Ed Sheeran signs on to appear on your television show, you’re going to get your money’s worth.)

Arya Stark stumbles across Sheeran’s character in the woods and compliments his singing. “That’s a pretty song,” she says. “I’ve never heard it before.” And then comes Sheeran’s self-aware reply:

It’s a new one.

Fans were only delighted to see the singer pop up in the series.

While others were very much of the “She doesn’t even go here!” persuasion.

As for the song Ed Sheeran sings? It’s taken straight from the third book of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series.

After the show, Ed Sheeran shared photos of himself on the set of Game of Thrones and wrote, “Throwback to the time I was a Lannister.”
