Game of Thrones has always been a fan of throwing in some random characters and getting us excited and taking them away.
Damn you, Gendry.
And they have recently revealed that they have added Ed Sheeran to the line up of random singers featured on the show. I mean, is it random? Totally. Am I excited?
Ed will have a short role in Season 7 alongside Arya Stark. Why Arya? Well, because the shows writers love her as much as we do and they wanted to surprise the actress with her favorite singer. They have been working to get him in the show for some time, like several season, which is kind of odd but whatevs. Ed will be singing some little ditty with Arya and that is the extent of his role. He seriously will come on screen only to immediately leave, never to be seen again.
No, you idiot, he’s just probably going on tour and can only film for one day.
Welcome to the show, Ed. He’s most likely the only natural ginger on the whole set, but a dying breed none the less. I’m sure they wont let you just walk off to your castle on the hill and will instead slaughter to remind us that no one is safe. Good luck, my sweet song bird, you’re going to need it.
