ED SHEERAN MADE a surprise appearance at the Berlin Film Festival.

The singer was there to talk about the new documentary ‘Songwriter’, a film shot by his cousin Murray Cummings. The documentary takes a look at Ed’s approach to music, and although it features Cherry Seaborn, there’s very little focus on the singer’s private life.

Sheeran’s been on TV and film more than once (Bridget Jones’s Baby, Game of Thrones, The Simpsons, etc.), but Deadline report that he plans to make his own film someday.

I’m going to make one movie in my lifetime. Well, I’ll aim to make one. And if it’s good, then I’ll make another one. If it’s shit…”

Sheeran also said that he’s not interested in playing himself, insisting “that would be a bit boring.” Sheeran told assembled press at the Berlin premiere that he’s working on preparing another film that will hopefully be released next year, and that he has completed the soundtrack already.

He also said that the storyline of the film is based on one of the albums that he has written, and it’s only in the “idea stage” at the moment.
