Ed Sheeran's Game of Thrones Appearance Was Surprise For Show's Star

You've seen the news last night and this morning, the "Shape of You" singer/songwriter will be on everybody's favorite HBO Dragon epic.

His appeal is wide, but especially to younger females-- which may be exactly how he ended up on the show.

At SXSW, showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss announced Maisie Williams (who plays Arya Stark) was a HUGE fan of Sheeran 

“For years we were trying to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie and this year we finally did it,” Benioff said.

The lesson here is work really hard and get really famous, then your friends will get your fave to star on your TV show.
