Last night Suffolk superstar Ed Sheeran put down the microphone and picked up a script to feature in the first episode of Game of Thrones season seven.

The programme aired at 9pm last night on Sky Atlantic.

The Framlingham singer’s cameo role in the extremely popular HBO fantasy drama excited Twitter users.

In the episode Shape of you singer Ed Sheeran is a Lannister soldier.

But Ed isn’t the first Suffolk celebrity to find themselves on the big screen.

Ipswich’s Sam Clafin is just one to mention, you would have seen him in Me Before You, The Hunger Games, Love Rosie and The Huntsman.

Suffolk is also home to Harry Potter’s Voldemort actor Ralph Fiennes, who has also been in James Bond films Skyfall and Spectre.
