Arya Stark was originally supposed to die in Season 7 of Game of Thrones?


Ed Sheeran got a lot of hate for his cameo in Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 1, “Dragonstone”. Fans weren’t too happy with the choice to cast the pop idol as a Lannister soldier. In fact, his brief appearance seems to be the most hated scene of the season so far. Sheeran even shut down his Twitter account after the episode, although he later claimed that his choice to leave Twitter was coincidental.

The Grammy-winning singer (and occasional actor) dropped by the Armchair Expert podcast for Monday’s episode where he talked about how fun it was to appear in the HBO cultural staple series, and how he felt about the backlash.


Sheeran also revealed a previously unknown secret about Maisie Williams’ character in Game of Thrones, Arya Stark, which might come as a shock to several fans. “She’s always been awesome,” Sheeran said of his friend, Williams. “I don’t think they had written the ending yet. It was meant to be her last season but it wasn’t. And as a surprise for her, [they got] me on. So, she was meant to turn up on set. and I was by the fire.”

Does this mean someone else was going to kill the Night King? Was it Jon Snow? Was it someone else? Arya’s death in Season 7 would have surely changed the ending of the series in a big way. What do you think? Tell us in the comments below!


Game of Thrones star Kit Harington rose to fame with his role Jon Snow, and has become a household name ever since.  Harington has come a long way ever since, playing iconic roles in several anthology series, and is recently making headlines with his role in the upcoming MCU movie Eternals. Game of Thrones fans are doubly excited for the film, as Harington and his on-screen brother from the HBO fantasy Richard Madden (Robb Stark) both play an important role in the film. Harington owes it all to his time on Game of Thrones, as it prepared him for a great future ahead.

Talking to Variety for an exclusive interview, the Game of Thrones star said, “I saw [“Game of Thrones” co-showrunner] Dan Weiss the other day. We had coffee, and I was saying to him, and he said to me — well, I won’t say what he said to me, but he felt similarly. But what “Thrones” enables you to feel is a sort of freedom. I did the thing, you know? It’s cool, I’ve got that. I have freedom now that I’m going to enjoy whatever it is I do.”


“It’s not that I don’t have ambition, but I have a kind of happiness that if things go well, great. If they don’t, I did that thing. So that’s where I’m at. And I feel that what something like being part of the Marvel Universe enables you to do, like “Thrones” did for me, is that you have this thing that you hopefully return to and can develop. And on the side, you can do all sorts of things that are the polar opposite. A little movie with no budget. Or the next thing I’m doing: I’m going off and playing “Henry V” in London in one of my favorite theaters. And this allows me to do that.”

Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has been largely successful in wooing its audience, breaking records in terms of popularity, viewership, and box office earnings. The latest installment to the ever sprawling cinematic universe is soon to hit the silver screen, and fans are already hyped up about it. When it comes to TV, no other franchise has been as big and successful as HBO’s Game of Thrones. And very few actors have been lucky enough to be a part of both, and Kit Harington ranks amongst them.

The shift to the MCU is certainly a big step for the Game of Thrones star, however, his work ethic doesn’t seem to have changed. Talking to Variety, Harington explained, “Nothing really, majorly surprises me after going through those eight seasons of “Thrones.” It was as big as anything gets by the end, as far as scale goes. But moving into Marvel, it is a different beast, in more subtle ways than you’d imagine.”


“What I like about the differences for me about these two things is I get to have lightness of touch in this, which I think is really important. It’s what I really loved about the Marvel movies — those little moments of kind of lightness, comedy, in amongst everything. And I saw a few opportunities for that with this character. Having played a majorly central part of a different show who was not comedic or light in any way whatsoever, not being the center of attention in this show and playing something that’s a little lighter was kind of fun.”

Game of Thrones stars are a close-knit bunch. Many of them are close friends in real life, like former on-screen brothers Richard Madden and Kit Harington, who played Robb Stark and Jon Snow respectively on the show. Hence it must come as no surprise that the two cherish any opportunity they get to work together. In this case, it was Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest phase 4 film Eternals.

In a recent interview with Variety, Harington recalled the moment he and Madden reunited on the set after a really long time:


“We had a big hug. We’ve been close friends for a long time. We had a shared experience of “Thrones” in the first three seasons — the three seasons that Richard was in — where it sort of blew up and became this Goliath of a show. And, you know, we were both 23. We’d kind of came up together and that creates quite a special bond. So actually, we have a very close friendship, but screen time doesn’t reflect that.”

“Yeah, if you add up all the scenes that me and Richard have shot in anything, “Thrones” and this, I think it comes in at about four scenes. Isn’t that weird? But there’s so much focus, from my part anyway, on me and Richard’s interaction in this. And it just goes to show that people create longer stories and histories for these characters than is actually there. I find that fascinating.”

Let’s hope Harington and Madden will get to do a lot of scenes together in the future. Are you excited about Marvel’s Eternals? Talk to us in the comments below!
