Ed Sheeran is one of the stars of the upcoming romantic comedy, Yesterday, and one of the perks of being a global superstar is that you can hook up your family, too. Reportedly, he scored a role in the movie for his partner, Cherry Seaborn.
A source tells the British tabloid The Sun, “Shooting this film was a real laugh and they did some of it on Ed’s tour. Cherry visits him on the road a fair amount and ended up getting to feature in a scene as an extra.”
“It’s only a tiny part but Ed and Cherry thought it was hilarious, and it’s pretty cute,” the source adds. “She even appears in the end credits.”
The part? Cherry — who is often referred to as Ed’s wife, based on reports that they married in secret last year — plays one of the cabin crew in Ed’s private jet, handing out champagne.
Yesterday, directed by Slumdog Millionaire‘s Danny Boyle, is about a struggling singer/songwriter named Jack who gets hit by a bus and and wakes up in a world where The Beatles never existed and nobody remembers them — except him.
Of course, Jack then starts passing off the Fab Four’s songs as his own, and soon catches the interest of Ed, who plays a version of himself. With Ed’s help, Jack becomes a superstar, but then risks losing the love of the one girl who always believed in him.
Yesterday opens June 28.
