The real reason behind Ed Sheeran's Game of Throne's cameo

21/07/2017

If you watched the Game of Throne's season 7 premiere earlier this week, you would have noticed Ed Sheeran making a cameo as a Lannister solider.

Following the premiere, Ed got a lot of hate on twitter which then led him to shut down his Twitter account before coming back to clap back at those haters.

However, the appearance wasn't random. Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) is a huge fan of Ed so the shows producer David Benioff decided to surprise Maisie he told Entertainment Weekly.

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, this year we finally did it.

So while the cameo would have seemed odd to some, it was for the most kindest reason.
