According to D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, the writer was invited to the set as a surprise for his ‘superfan’ Maisie Williams (Arya Stark). “For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie, and this year, we finally did it,” Benioff told the Guardian.
In the past, some rockers have made cameos, including Coldplay’s Will Champion, and Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody.
