Game Of Thrones fans were left divided by the cameo of Ed Sheeran in the first episode of the penultimate series. The pop star sang during his fleeting appearance in the death-filled episode titled Dragonstone, which kicked off season seven when it aired in the early hours of Monday.
The 26-year-old was dressed as a soldier and singing around a campfire when he caught the attention of Maisie Williams’s Arya Stark as she rode through a forest on horseback. Stark told Sheeran’s unnamed character: “It’s a pretty song, I’ve never heard it before.” “It’s a new one,” Sheeran replied.
Nadine tweeted: “How awesome is @edsheeran in that scene with Arya Stark?” Lyndsey Vanstone added: “Amazing cameo from @edsheeran in @GameOfThrones season 7 premiere!” Meghan Rienks added: “ed sheeran in game of thrones is everything i never knew i needed”
