In the much-awaited Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere, fans were treated with a popular cast addition.As Arya Stark was traveling on a horseback through the Riverlands, after she’s murdered an entire army of Riverlands, she was greeted by the sound of music which she followed and discovered Ed Sheeran who was singing a campfire song as a Lannister soldier and offered Arya Stark some grilled rabbit.
The singer-songwriter deleted his Twitter account after his cameo went on air in theHBO’s Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere. Sheeran, has not explained why his account vanished, but the timing was curious because his account disappearance happened less than 24 hours after he appeared on the series.
The singer is still there on Instagram. The singer earlier mentioned that he has decided not to be active on Twitter as the platform is mostly used to humiliate others. Sheeran once said “I’ve actually come off Twitter completely. I cant read it. I got on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. Twitters a platform for that. One comment ruins your day. But that’s why I’ve come off it,”
Fans started asking why the singer made an appearance in the show, and the answers is Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) is a huge fan of Ed Sheeran, so show runners David Benioff and DB Weiss surprised her by getting him to do a cameo for an episode.Ed had revealed this before in an interview that the scene wasn’t too ground-breaking and said that he would only be appearing for ‘like five minutes’ and ‘I don’t die’.He also said that he’d rather play a character who has sex than one who dies, but he was only given a few lines for his cameo.
The singer, who is on a worldwide tour, will return to the small screen on a different network next.Ed Sheeran told on Monday that he’ll play a guest role in an episode of Fox’s The Simpsons.
