The Thread: “Unforgivable” | The internet’s having a field day with Ed Sheeran’s appearance in Game of Thrones

Ed Sheeran scored a cameo role in the new season of the hit TV show, Game of Thrones, to simultaneous cheers and boos from the internet. The aggro is understandable, seeing as Sheeran hardly did any acting at all, after singing. He appeared to be a required part of the backdrop as conversation between Arya Starck and other Lannister soldiers swirled about him.

According to Co-showrunner David Benioff, this is why Sheeran had a cameo: “We knew that Maisie was a big fan of Ed Sheeran, and for years we’ve been trying to get him on the show so we can surprise Maisie. This year we finally did it.”

For most fans of the show, Game of Thrones just did something unforgivable. See below:
