While many TV reveals have made family names out of their star gamers, often showrunners have been capable of corral a few of Hollywood’s largest names to drop in for a stunning cameo throughout a whole episode or a single scene.
Perhaps some of the polarizing cameos belonged to Ed Sheeran on HBO’s Game of Thrones in July 2017. The singer appeared in a quick scene in the course of the season 7 premiere, titled “Dragonstone.” In the episode, the “Bad Habits” singer performs a Lannister soldier sitting subsequent to a campfire as Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) rode previous on horseback. He sang a fast tune to his fellow troopers and Arya replied, “It’s a pretty song. I’ve never heard it before.”
While some followers have been pumped to see the “Thinking out Loud” crooner pop up in Westeros, others have been actually irritated. Twitter customers commented the whole lot from “Ed Sheeran’s really looking for that castle on the hill, huh,” to “I don’t even watch Game of Thrones but still made Ed Sheeran ruined it” and “This is a show with dragons and I still can’t believe that Ed Sheeran is currently on screen.”
The HBO present’s creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss beforehand introduced his cameo at South by Southwest that March. “We knew that Maisie was a big fan of Ed Sheeran and for years, we’ve been trying to get him on the show so we can surprise Maisie,” Benioff stated on the time. “This year we finally did it.”
