There could be a familiar face on the shores of Westeros soon.

Ed Sheeran has revealed that he’s already in talks with the producers of the hit HBO fantasy drama Game of Thrones to discuss a role in the show.

“There were talks ages ago of me being an extra, which could have been cool,” Sheeran, 24, told The Sun newspaper, adding, “but every time they shoot, it’s the time I tour in the U.K.”

Luckily for him (and us!), he has some upcoming downtime scheduled and is on a mission to make it happen: “I’ve got that time off this year, so I’m going to hound them.”

Sheeran is a huge fan of the show (he recently posed with Jon Snow‘s sword on Instagram) and became friends with actress and fellow Brit Maisie Williams, who plays sword-wielding heroine Arya Stark, after they formed a friendship on Twitter.

It’s not the first time that the Grammy-winning artist has ditched his microphone and guitar for a TV role, having recently filmed a scene with the cast of the Australian show Home and Away. He also just guest-starred on Sesame Street.

Lannisters and Baratheons beware: The House of Sheeran is coming.

Game of Thrones airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on HBO.
