Ed Sheeran made a cameo in the first episode of Game Of Thrones season 7.
After over a year of waiting, GOT fans were finally treated to an action-packed hour long episode, entitled Dragonstone, and many were surprised to see Ed Sheeran make an appearance.
The singer was dressed as a soldier and singing around a campfire in the middle of the woods when he caught the attention of Arya Stark (Maisie Williams).

Series creators David Benioff and DB Weiss previously revealed that Ed would feature in the new season, when speaking at a panel at South By Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas.
Although many were delighted to see Ed, die-hard fans weren't too impressed - and many took to Twitter to question why he appeared on the show.

Only way to justify Ed Sheeran's #GameOfThrones cameo is for him to greet Bran with: "When your legs don't work like they used to before..."
