Ed Sheeran finally made an appearance on Game of Thrones during the seson 7 premiere and it soon turned into a nightmare for him as many fans of the show showed their displeasure over his role. Sheeran had a very small role in the episode, which included just two lines, apart from the “Hands of Gold” song that he was singing during the scene. The showrunners had been trying to get Ed Sheeran to play a cameo on the show since a long time as Maisie Williams is a big fan of his and they wanted to surprise her by letting her share some screentime with Sheeran.

However, many fans of the show weren’t impressed by his presence in the episode as they felt that there efforts weren’t taken to disguse his character in the episode, as has been the case with the other celebrity cameos in the past, where it was difficult to spot them. Other people wished that Arya should’ve killed his character. Here are some of the reactions:

After the episode aired, his account vanished from Twitter without any explanation. However, the account was back on Twitter after few hours but his Twitter bio now reads, “I don’t use this anymore, please follow me on @teddysphotos on instagram, lots of love x.” Sheeran has previously talked about all the negativity that he encounters on Twitter. “I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. Twitter’s a platform for that,” said Sheeran.

Many of his fans were upset that he decided to delete his account after being criticized for his role and they felt that the criticism was unwarranted.

Game Of Thrones Season 8 premieres on 14th April and we are less than 50 days away from the premiere date but so far HBO hasn’t released the trailer and the fans are definitely getting a bit restless. It’s been close to 2 years since season 7 got over the wait has been excruciatingly long. Luckily for the fans, HBO has given a sneak peek of some new footage from Game Of Thrones Season 8.

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.

Arya is awe-struck when she sees Drogon and it will be wonderful to see her meeting Jon Snow for the first time after season 1. Take a look at the video below.

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.

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.

colbertspoilers-9482450Talking 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:

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.

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.
