Some spoilers ahead.

Ed Sheeran made a cameo appearance on the season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones. The British singer played one of a few Lannister soldiers who Arya Stark, our hero of the year, bumps into while travelling to King's Landing.

Anyone who follows the HBO series would know that it's never safe to be around Arya Stark these days. Especially not if you're on her to-kill list. And Cersei Lannister is on her to-kill list. So it was natural to watch Ed's scene with your breath held, even if he first charmed everyone with a song.

As it turns out, even Ed was worried he'd get slaughtered.

"When I first got the scene and saw I was a Lannister soldier and playing opposite Maisie, I just assumed we'd all get killed at the end," Ed confessed in an interview with the Game of Thrones blog. We have a confession: it would have made quite the story if Arya did kill them all.

Twitter folk felt the same way.

In other news, the Game of Thrones season 7 premiere broke viewership records, Ed Sheeran has deactivated his Twitter account, but on Instagram announced that he will voice a musician named Brendan in a musical-themed episode of The Simpsons.


This year continues to be equally surreal and amazing. Watch out for this one, me and Lisa have a whole thing going on x
