Ed Sheeran Dishes He's Not Dying on 'Game of Thrones'

Ed Sheeran is shedding some very revealing details on his surprise appearance on Season 7′s Game of Thrones, and the news is good!

We first reported on Ed‘s guest appearance in mid March, and now the “Shape of You” singer is opening up about this dream role that’s been five years in the making.

“I do know which role I am going to play,” Ed, who is listed as an actor in one episode of GOT on IMDB.com, explained to The Daily Star. “I don’t die in it. I don’t die.”

Hilariously, he added that there is one thing he would love for his character to do.

“I’d probably prefer to have sex than die in the show,” he said. “I’m sure a lot of people are into [boning and then dying], but I’m not.”

He went on to dish, “I’m only in it for like five minutes.”

Ed says that being on the show has been kind of a life-long dream of his.

“My friend guested in it in 2012 and I remember I was on tour with him and he was like: ‘Right, I’ve got a guest slot on Game Of Thrones,’” Ed explained about his friend Snow Patrol‘s Gary Lightbody. To which Ed immediately responded, “I remember saying: ‘You got to get me on it at some point.’”

“It’s been five years so it’s finally come true,” he proclaimed.
