The world of Westeros includes Ed Sheeran? Who knew?! So, the globe has watched the premiere episode of HBO’s hit-series, Game of Thrones.
Game of Thrones’ premiere left viewers gobsmacked…
The long-anticipated premiere smashed records as fans tuned in to follow the fates of their favorite characters for another season of fire vs. ice, followed by blood and betrayal. As we know what a Game of Thrones episode is all about, there were a few surprises in there – but the biggest of them all was probably Ed Sheeran’s cameo.
The Shape of You singer made an appearance as a soldier. While he sang a song before encountering Arya Stark, the internet completely freaked out once they realized it was actually Ed himself.
Ed Sheeran couldn’t hide from Twitter though…
Twitter users had quite a lot to say. Before ‘Twitter critics’ became too much, it came up to a point where the singer actually deleted his Twitter account. Just goes to show nobody is safe from the internet.
And now it seems the singer isn’t done with making appearances on shows yet. It was recently revealed that Ed will also make a cameo on The Simpsons, as a character reportedly caught up in a love triangle with Lisa Simpson.
When that will happen isn’t clear.
But, first, let’s take a look at the best reactions to Ed Sheeran’s cameo on Game of Thrones:

Everyone is complaining about Ed Sheeran on Game of Thrones, but just wait until the season finale, which features a performance by Pitbull.

At some point in the season I hope Ed Sheeran meets Bran and tells him “When your legs don’t work like they used to before”

The Ed Sheeran cameo in last night’s GoT didn’t really bother me.
Mostly because I don’t know who Ed Sheeran is.

What if George R.R. Martin slowly kills off everyone and Ed Sheeran eventually becomes the true king in all of Westeros?
