The 26-year-old was dressed as a soldier and singing around a campfire when he caught the attention of Maisie Williams’s Arya Stark as she rode through a forest on horseback.
Stark told Sheeran’s unnamed character: “It’s a pretty song, I’ve never heard it before.”
“It’s a new one,” Sheeran replied.
The singer-songwriter celebrated his appearance, posting a shot of his performance on Instagram after tuning into the show.
“Throwback to the time I was a Lannister,” he wrote.
Fans praised Sheeran on social media.
