Give a man a sword, and he might accidentally slice off an appendage. But give a man a cameo on Game of Thrones and let him keep his guitar, and he will definitely serenade someone.

According to WatchersOnTheWallEd "I Am Perhaps Too Confident That I Will Survive" Sheeran will appear in a scene this season in which he sings to Arya Stark, who then has the same response as 97 percent of women to boys who who play instruments™: "Oh, that's a nice song."

But while her character might deliver that line with withering disdain, actress Maisie Williams might be fan-girling on the inside—after all, GoT showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have been promising her they'd give Sheeran a walk-on role for years.
