Ginger-faced pop star Ed Sheeran is popping his guitar in the cupboard to take on a recurring role in the new medieval drama The Bastard Executioner.  Created by Kurt Sutter, the man behind Sons of Anarchy, the show will tell the story of a 14th Century warrior whose life is changed by 'a divine messenger', and Ed will be playing a 'deadly' character....with the voice of an angel.
