Game of Thrones Season 7: Ed Sheeran makes his debut besides Arya Stark in first episode
Singer Ed Sheeran made his Game of Thrones debut in the season seven premiere.
The 'Castle on the hill' singer appeared 39 minutes into the episode when his unnamed character's voice caught the attention of young Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) as she was riding through the forest. It aired on 16 July.
"For hands of gold are always cold, but a woman's hands are warm," Sheeran's character croons while sitting fireside with a group of soldiers who have stopped to have a bite to eat before heading to The Riverlands, reports etonline.com.
"It's a pretty song, I've never heard it before," Arya says.
"It's a new one," Sheeran retorts.
Last month, he spoke about the cameo on the popular show.
"I haven't seen it yet! I just know the scene I did, I did with Maisie, and it's decent. I like it," Sheeran said.
"Nothing exciting happens in this scene, we just have a conversation and that's kind of it."
Sheeran also admitted that he feels his cameo "has been built up too much".
"People will just be like, 'Oh... oh, all right'," he joked.
"It's not an integral part of it, at all. I'm just like, in it."
Integral or not, Game of Thrones and Ed Sheeran fans were pretty excited about the very short cameo and the fact that he sings in it. As usual, twitter had some pretty hilarious things to say about it:
