Ed Sheeran Was Asked To Guest Star On 'Game of Thrones'

(Radio.com) Game of Thrones continues its quest to have every English citizen appear on the show by offering Ed Sheeran a guest spot. Sheeran tells The Sun (via Billboard) that he's been approached in the past by the show, but scheduling conflicts precluded his ability to work GoT into his busy schedule.

"There were talks ages ago of me being an extra, which could have been cool. But every time they shoot it's the time I tour in the UK," Sheeran said. "But I've got that time off this year, so I'm going to hound them."

We'll assume that reference to GoT's The Hound is incidental. Sheeran isn't the only English singer who's interested in getting their shot on Game of Thrones. Lily Allen, sister to Alfie Allen who played Theon Greyjoy, also used to harbor dreams of appearing as an extra on the Thrones set, going so far as the claim she declined a role on the show as the incestious princess Yara Greyjoy.
