Ed Sheeran discusses fate of his 'Game of Thrones' character

Ed Sheeran Knows His Game Of Thrones Character Was No Match For Drogon

Ed Sheeran's cameo in Game of Thrones' season seven premiere was slammed by hard-core fans.

Sheeran also noted, "No one wants to see me come back".

In an interview with MTV News, Sheeran spoke about his time in Westeros, and the inspiration behind his appearance (star Maisie Williams, who shared a scene with the singer, is a huge fan).

The funniest thing about the Ed Sheeran - Game of Thrones cameo is that if the majority of the fans out there were asked to turn up on the show, they'd do this in a heartbeat (including a slew of celebrities!).

As he explained, Sheeran said "a very easy yes" when approached to take the role of a singing Lannister soldier. Nonetheless, Sheeran's Lannister soldier may not be alive, or at least not for long.

On average, one person is killed every 51 minutes in an impaired driving crash. The crackdown runs through Monday, September 4.

Thankfully, as the show winds to its end, there isn't room to find out what happened to everyone in the realm, and I don't think anyone will be losing sleep over the lack of Ed Sheeran in Season 8.

"I'm cool with it, though", he added.

"No one wants to see me come back", Sheeran told MTV. "I wanted to be a cameo in it, and I've done the cameo", he said.

"I think Ed did a lovely job - he's a lovely actor and a lovely person". Big name castings like Diana Rigg, Jim Broadbent, and Richard E. Grant represent some of the best Game of Thrones decisions ever made, but with this one it is a case of sticking to your day job, Eddy.

Honestly, if showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss asked you to be in an episode of Game of Thrones, wouldn't you say yes immediately, too?
