Ed Sheeran appears in Game Of Thrones season premiere, Simpsons next

Following his cameo as a singing soldier in the Game of Thrones season 7 premiere, Ed Sheeran is heading to Springfield next.

In March, showrunner David Benioff said Sheeran was cast because Williams was a "big fan" and they wanted to "surprise her".

"It's a pretty song, I've never heard it before?"

Ed Sheeran on Game of Thrones Has Caused a Twitter Storm
Ed Sheeran has deleted his Twitter account only hours after he was criticised for his cameo performance in Game of Thrones . Sheeran invites Arya Stark - played by Maisie Williams - to join his men around the camp fire in the season seven opener.

He has already got a few sporadic TV cameos like the NBC comedy Undateable and had a recurring role in The Bastard Executioner. I can't read it. "When Lisa meets Brendan, Milhouse comes in and he goes, 'I've brought three kinds of waters - cold, warm, and lukewarm, '" says Jean.

He'll play a musician named Brendan for a musical-themed episode in season 29, titled Haw-Haw Land, and it sounds as if there might be a love triangle developing between Brendan, Lisa Simpson and bully Nelson Muntz. In other Ed Sheeran cameo news, the 26-year-old Brit is also set to appear on an upcoming episode of The Simpsons.

As executive producer Al Jean tells Entertainment Weekly: "He keeps alternating [between], "You're not that great, but you could be fantastic, ' and she keeps falling for him because of his talent". The newest news of Sheeran's small-screen work seems even more dubious, however: The UK pop superstar will apparently guest on The Simpsons as a Lisa love interest parodying Ryan Gosling's suspenders-wearing jazzbo heartthrob in last year's La La Land.
