"Game of Thrones" fans were given more reasons to be excited for the newest season after the HBO series announced it will feature Ed Sheeran at some point in Season 7. The show's creators, David Benioff and DB Weiss, personally delivered the good news during a panel discussion in Texas last March.

Vanity Fair noted that Benioff and Weiss have been eyeing to have the "Thinking Of You" crooner on the show for a cameo appearance.

It added that the idea was meant to surprise Maisie Williams, who is a big fan of Ed Sheeran. After wooing the Brit artist for years, his highly anticipated appearance in "Game of Thrones" is finally happening this year!

What to expect from Ed's role?

Ed Sheeran frankly said there is nothing significant about his character in the HBO series. The "Castle On The Hill" singer revealed he will be sharing the small screen with Arya Stark for his cameo appearance in "Game of Thrones" Season 7.

"I haven't seen it yet! I just know the scene I did, I did with Maisie [Williams], and it's decent. I like it." he told ET. "It's not an integral part of it, at all. I'm just like, in it."

Although he is humbled by the overwhelming response he is getting after the news was made public, the singer-songwriter advised his fans not to expect too much from his role in the upcoming installment slated to premiere on July 16.

The "How Would You Feel" artist also recalled his experience on the "Game of Thrones" set. "I didn't put on my thermal socks and I was outside in the winter in England for about 10 hours," Ed Sheeran said.

In a separate interview with Tom Green, the two-time Grammy Awards winner revealed he will sing a song for Williams' Arya Stark. The singer also confirmed he will have a five-minute exposure and has assured the fans that his "Game of Thrones" character will not die.

"Game of Thrones" Season 7 spoilers!

The final moments of the previous season have left the viewers at the edge of their seats when the show revealed that Lyanna Stark and Rhaegaar Targaryen are Jon Snow's parents. That leads us to the conclusion that the King Crow is a Targaryen. But what's his first name, by the way?

Before Lyanna died due to complications from giving birth to Jon Snow, the female Stark whispered her son's name to Ned.

Unfortunately, the name was inaudible which leads us back to square one. But before "Game of Thrones" returns for its seventh season, a Reddit spoiler revealed the real name of Kit Harington's role as Jaehaerys, the fourth Targeryen king who is also known as "The Wise," "The Old King," and "The Conciliator."
