Ed Sheeran thinks his Game of Thrones character should have been killed off

Director Jeremy Podeswa defends Ed Sheeran's cameo in Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere

One’s wish for death is always met with disdainful or sympathetic reactions. It may just be a whim amidst the chaos that’s life, but many of us might have wished so at some step in our lives. The land of the seven kingdoms and beyond is really cool with granting wishes of such nature. All you need to do is be confident that you won’t die, mess with some powerful people, and then impatiently rush for a conclusive evidence of your strength over them. You are sorted of life! Or if it’s too much to do, you could be an innocent and well-meaning person doing no harm to anyone. Either way, death is certain.

Famous singer & songwriter, Ed Sheeran talked of a similar wish for his Lannister soldier cameo in Game of Thrones season 7. The appearance was not well received by most, some even deeming it as one of the worse things that happened in Westeros.

And the musician must have been closely listening to the reviews. In a chat with Buzzfeed, he talked about a host of things. He is continually playing with kittens, and the video has an overall adorable feeling to it.

He spoke about his Apple music documentary Songwriter, what inspires him to be competitive, music choices, his writing, touring, cats, and of course, Game of Thrones.

“What do you think your character has been up to since we last saw him?” asked the voice in the interview. He answered, “I know what Game of Thrones fans hoped happened to my character. I’m sure they think my character got brutally, brutally murdered, but I think my character is still out there. I think he’s chillin’.” “Like the cat (in hand),” he laughed.

“It was fun being in Game of Thrones,” he continued, “but I definitely think they should’ve killed me off in the episode. I reckon that probably would’ve been the redemption for people that didn’t like it.”

In a making-video, showrunner David Benioff had said, “Ed Sheeran has got a beautiful voice, and we knew that he was a fan of the show, and we knew that Maisie [Williams, who plays Arya Stark] was obsessed with him. So we always thought it would be fun to try to get him into a Maisie scene at some point.”

Honestly, I rewatched this scene, where Ed Sheeran sings a song, “Hands of gold are always cold, but a woman’s hands are warm…,” and I liked it. It’s a bunch of Lannister soldiers in the Riverlands, Sheeran one of them, and Arya arrives. They offer her food and wine. One expects something bad may happen here now. Both the parties are careful yet somehow relaxed. The soldiers talk about their purpose being there, the irony of their job, and the restlessness of visiting home again. Arya‘s on her way to King’s Landing, but why? Nonchalantly, she says, “I am going to kill the queen.” Silence ensues, and then everyone is in splits. They were strangers who were kind to each other.

This was one of the underplayed and humane moments of the show. And frankly, Ed Sheeran was alright.

If you have any thoughts about the scene or Ed Sheeran in general, do tell us in the comments.

The tiny footage is part of the video titled “It All Starts Here,” and it gives fans a glimpse of what they can expect from HBO in 2019. For us the center of attention is the Game Of Thrones footage in the video and we can see the Unsullied and Dothraki marching into Winterfell, with Drogon flying above and the Northerners are really scared to see a dragon for the first time in their life, but not Arya.

Game of Thrones Season 8 premiere cast revealed. Two surprising cast members return

"The Dragon and the Wolf" becomes the most watched Game of Thrones episode ever jon_snow_and_dany

Game of Thrones Season 8 is coming to our television sets in less than two months. While Jason Momoa might have hinted at the red carpet premiere date on April 3, 2019, which is eleven days before the actual airing date of the new season, a new announcement has been made by HBO which reveals the cast of the premiere. Taking into account what actually has been announced by HBO we have two cast members who – much to our surprise may return back for the Final Season of Game of Thrones.

The list announced on the website of HBO gives us detail about which characters will be back during the first episode of season 8 and these include main cast members like Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Peter Dinklage, Gwendoline Christie, and more!

Other stars included in the list are Ben Crompton (Edd Tollett), Kristopher Hivju (Tormund), Joe Dempsie (Gendry), Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy), Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne), and others.

This tells that the first episode of this season will be in fact exactly 60-minutes-long as revealed earlier. But, before we give away the names of those cast members – please proceed with caution in case you want to be spoiler-free for Game of Thrones Season 8.

Peter Dinklage says Game Of Thrones Season 8 battles will be better than ‘the Battle of the Bastards’Talking about the two cast members who will be back in the season 8 premiere episode, pretty much confirming that they are reprising their roles in season include:

Tobias Menzies: The actor who plays the role of the long- lost uncle of the Starks – Edmure Tully who was last seen being used as a bait by the Lannisters and the Freys in Season 6 to win back Riverrun.

Lino Facioli: Lino Francioli – the actor who plays the role of the last heir of House Arryn – Robin Arryn. He was last seen practising archery in Season 6 with Ser Yohn Royce at Vale. He appeared briefly in the scene where the deceased Littlefinger had Vale align with Starks and had gifted him a Gyrfalcon.

This gives us some hope for two major houses surviving the events in Game of Thrones Season 8 unless the showrunners have decided to bring them only to kill them later. Here’s a full list of the cast members who will be a part of Game Of Thrones season 8 premiere:

Sophie Turner reveals Sansa is getting an armour in Game of Thrones Season 8

With us being in the mid of February, Game of Thrones Season 8 seems to be arriving sooner than ever. While we wait for the official trailer which we expect to drop soon, more and more cast interviews have started surfacing. And this time it is Sophie Turner – who has revealed to Entertainment Weekly that her attire is getting a new upgrade in Season 8 with added armour. Read on.

Sophie Turner to be the lead star of the next X-Men movie

Sansa Stark – the true lady of Winterfell has undergone a rather darker change in her as compared to the other characters we’ve known over the seasons. Of course, the kind of trauma she has suffered especially witnessing the assassination of her father – she has undergone is the biggest propelling factor.

Additionally, this drastic change has also been contributed by her experiences with antagonists and power played like Joffrey, Cersei, Ramsay, and Littlefinger who’ve used and abused her over the last seven seasons. Without diving much deeper in her character arc, now let’s discuss in detail what Sophie told Entertainment Weekly.

“This is the first time I’ve had armour,” she revealed.

This armour according to EW, isn’t a regular armour worn by Knights and Kings but ‘a jet-black ensemble made of thick leather or similar material’. Sophie also said:

“We [had] the idea of it being very protective and she buttons herself up…I wanted her to have a bit of armour and be a bit more warrior like. She’s like the warrior of Winterfell.”

What the second official teaser – Crypts of Winterfell showed us has already created a lot of hype in the fandom – talks about Sansa doing her hair like Daenerys and much more. Yet, we can’t ignore that Sansa has drawn her personality from the women she has learnt a great deal like Cersei Lannister.

Where, she once did her hair in a style similar to Cersei and wore more bright colours, after returning to Winterfell – she now dresses in a darker colour like several other characters. Maybe, we’re up for an armoured Sansa much like Cersei who too has got an attire upgrade in the new season.

We haven’t got any teaser or behind-the-scenes photos that reveal Sansa’s new costume yet if Entertainment Weekly has brought us this news – the smoke obviously comes from some fire around. So, what were your thoughts on Sansa’s costume change in Season 8? Tell us in the comments.
