A few weeks after “Game of Thrones” season 7 ended, Ed Sheeran spoke to MTV News where he discussed his rather not so well-received cameo during the show’s season premiere episode, “Dragonstone.”

Asked about his thoughts on his character’s possible fate, Sheeran said he doubts if he would have survived that long in the harsh world of Westeros, especially with dragons in it. Sheeran appeared on the show as one of the youthful Lannister soldiers whom Arya Stark met in the Riverlands.

In season 7 episode 4, “The Spoils of War,” the Lannister army was nearly decimated by the combined attack of the Dothraki horde and Daenerys’ dragon, Drogon.

Though we may never learn what happens to Sheeran’s group of merry and music-loving soldiers, the attack was ominous of what they will possibly face in the future.

How he got the part

The singer-songwriter was invited to do a cameo role by the "Game of Thrones" showrunners, David Benioff and D.B Weiss, as a surprise to Maise Williams who plays Arya Stark and is known to be a big fan of Sheeran.

According to the “Shape of You” singer, he has been a fan of the show since 2012 and his response to the invitation was a "very easy yes."

The cameo scene

Arya Stark met Sheeran’s character in the Riverlands while on her way to King’s Landing. Arya heard him singing while his group of youthful Lannister soldiers was resting around a campfire.

Upon seeing Arya, they invited the Stark assassin to join them, eat and have some wine. They shared some thoughtful details about themselves and then asked Arya where she was going. To this she replied she's going to King’s Landing to kill the Queen. They all laughed and that was it.

Mixed reactions

Ed Sheeran’s cameo during the season 7 premiere of “Game of Thrones” divided avid viewers of the HBO hit show.

There are those who were delighted to see the singer, while a good number of fans expressed their disappointments on Twitter.

The apparent bad reaction online caused the British singer to stop using his official Twitter account. The user description of the social media account now says “I don't use this anymore, please follow me on @teddysphotos on Instagram, lots of love x.”

On returning back

The Grammy Award winning singer dismiss the idea of returning to "Game of Thrones." He said he did not want to be on the show for long because he is not an actor. "No one wants to see me come back,” Sheeran said. The singer said, however, that he did not mind the negative responses he received online to his cameo role.
