Ed Sheeran is coming.

At a South By Southwest panel moderated by Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner on Sunday, showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss revealed that the British singer will make a surprise cameo on a Season 7 episode of Game of Thrones in a yet-to-be-determined role.

For those of you still wondering who or what an Ed Sheeran is, simply Google "Shape of You" or "Thinking Out Loud."

And who do we have to thank for this delightfully random upcoming cameo? Well, Maisie Williams, of course. "We knew that Maisie was a big fan of Ed Sheeran, so for years we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show so we could surprise Maisie, and this year we finally did it," Benioff revealed.

This isn't the first time a singer has guest starred on GOTs. In the past, Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol, Will Champion from Coldplay, Sigur Rós, and Mastodon have all made appearances. 

Following the announcement, Sophie Turner joked, "I'm still waiting on Bieber..." Now that would definitely be something...
