Ed Sheeran makes a cameo in Game of Thrones

With only 6 more episodes to go this season, hopefully Game of Thrones can hold onto the sizable audience it pulled in for the premiere.

Game of Thrones season 7 episode 1 has been leaked on social media after its premiere on July 16. The longer-than-you-imagined scene in which he shared some rabbit and blackberry wine with superfan Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) found Ed singing a campfire song.

There's no word on if Sheeran's character will pop up again this season, but judging by the series' fatality track record, the odds of survival are not in his favor.

Others simply enjoyed the joke fodder that Sheeran's appearance provided, poking fun at the promotional feel, making song puns and even theorizing that Sheeran could factor into the show's end.

Twitter was flooded with incensed "Game of Thrones" fans, many of whom felt the Grammy award winner's feature wasn't subtle enough.

Will we see more from Ed Sheeran in the upcoming episodes? "I've never heard of it before.' Ed Sheeran: 'It's on Spotify". Incidentally, Tyrion is one of the strongest persons on the side of Daenerys since he not only is a good strategist but also knows how to come out of any of the tough situations. Sheeran then delivers his one line: "It's a new one".

Showrunner David Benioff said: "For years we were trying to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie and this year we finally did it".

Hmmm - pretty much sums it up. "Game Of Thrones: Here's Arya eating a squirrel next to Ed Sheeran". The "Castle on the Hill" crooner will be playing Brendan, a hipster musician who steals Lisa's heart in the La La Land parody episode.

Sporting a tattoo of Blinky the three-eyed fish, Sheeran is a longtime Simpsons fan, something which obviously brought him to the attention of the show's executive producer Al Jean, who arranged to have Sheeran record his part over the phone from England.

Sheeran sang during his fleeting appearance in the death-filled episode, Dragonstone, in the first episode of the penultimate series of the TV drama.
