NETHERLANDS-BRITAIN-ENTERTAINMENT-MUSIC-CONCERT-SHEERANThe "Game of Thrones" showrunners know how to do a surprise right.

They didn't just convince Ed Sheeran to do a guest appearance on the series as a surprise for co-star Maisie Williams (Arya); they also got him to (spoiler alert) sing for her as part of his cameo. Yes, you probably saw that coming given he's a Grammy-winning musician, but the information is new nonetheless. He let it slip during an interview with The Hits Radio.

"I do a scene with Maisie," he said, according to The Daily Mail. "I sing a song and then she goes, 'Oh, that's a nice song.'"

Since his cameo is apparently only around five minutes long, we probably now know the gist of the entire scene. It's like nobody remembered to warn him about spoilers. Just last month, he revealed that his character won't be killed off.

We'll see Sheeran pop up in "Game of Thrones" Season 7 sometime after its July 16 premiere.
