A day after "Game of Thrones" (GOT) Season 7's premiere on July 17, British pop star Ed Sheeran, who appeared briefly in the premiere, deleted his Twitter account. In the first episode, Jon Snow is seen receiving a message sent by Cersie to not come in her way or he shall also be killed. I will admit I thought Sheeran actually has a new song for Game of Thrones but it turns out he doesn't.
And although it should not come as all that much of a shock, a lot of people tuned into HBO Sunday night to acknowledge that Winter is in fact here. HBO execs might have felt some gnawing fear about lower ratings when they chose to bring back "Game of Thrones" in the summer for the first time, instead of the spring.
Sheeran isn't the first musician to cameo on the HBO drama; Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol, Will Champion from Coldplay, Sigur Rós, and almost all members of American heavy metal band Mastodon previously appeared on the Emmy-winning series.
"He was appropriate for the part because he needed to sing".
"I think Ed did a lovely job - he's a lovely actor and a lovely person", Podeswa told Newsweek.
The creators of the show have tried to tackle the issue of illegal downloads by legally distributing the content all over the world. It seems Ed has had enough of the mockery because on Monday, he deleted his Twitter account with no explanation. It's just foolish to do when there's love out there in the world to look at the negative stuff.
In it, he clarifies that his plotline will focus around Lisa - since she's also a budding musician, we're sure it'll be a good one.
But while it's one of the most explosive starts to a Game of Thrones season so far, co show-runner DB Weiss has revealed that a totally different start to proceedings had originally been envisaged.
