Season five of Game Of Thrones finally arrived this week, and the 'Thinking Out Loud' star has clearly gone crazy for Westeros as he's determined to nab himself a spot starring alongside Tyrion, Danaerys and Jon Snow for next year's season six. 

"There were talks ages ago of me being an extra which would have been cool," Ed revealed to The Sun this week. "But every time they shoot [the series] it's the time I tour in the UK.

"But I've got that time off this year, so I'm going to hound them," Ed added.

Recently the 'Sing' star filmed a cameo appearance for Aussie soap Home & Away. It looks like Ed may have been well and truly bitten by the acting bug.
