‘People’s reaction’ to Ed Sheeran’s Game of Thrones cameo ‘muddied his joy to it’




Ed Sheeran made an appearance on Game of Thrones during the Season 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 for a long time as actress Maisie Williams is a big fan of his and they wanted to surprise her by letting her share some screentime with Sheeran. Sheeran finally revealed how he felt about the backlash he received for his infamous cameo.


He appeared in the Armchair Expert podcast for Monday’s episode where he talked about how fun it was to cameo in the hit HBO series.

“It was great,” he said of the day’s shoot. Not so great, the reaction to his cameo. “I feel like people’s reaction to it sort of muddied my joy to it,” he admitted.
