Ed Sheeran thinks we all need to calm down about his Game of Thrones cameo, to which I say, YOU CALM DOWN, SIR.
The humble Brit hit the red carpet at the Songwriters Hall of Fame induction this week and apparently spent most of it fielding Thrones questions, telling Access Hollywood, “Im literally a cameo, its the least interest[ing] everyones gonna watch it and be like ‘oh, was that it?’ Im just popping up in it. I know the next seasons crazy, but Im not involved in the craziness.”
That may be true, but being adjacent to Game of Thrones craziness is still pretty exciting unlike Sheeran’s scene, apparently.
“The scene I did, I did with Maisie [Williams], and its decent, I like it,” Sheeran told Entertainment Tonight. “Nothing exciting happens in the scene, we just have a conversation, thats kind of it.”
Not only do they have a conversation, but according to what the singer has previously revealed about the scene, he also performs a song during the guest spot and Arya Stark is seemingly just as much of a Sheeran fan as the actress who portrays her.
Still, Sheeran doesn’t think we should get too worked up about his appearance. “I feel like my cameos been built up too much though, people will just be like ‘Oh. Oh, alright,'” he told ET. “Its not an integral part of it at all, Im just, like in it.”
But what about bloopers? Did anything crazy happen while he was filming, one intrepid reporter asked? “I didnt put on my thermal socks and I was outside in the winter in England for about 10 hours, so it was cold,” Sheeran revealed.
Good to know that if this whole music thing doesn’t work out, he could have a lucrative career as a hype man…
You can see Sheeran’s “decent” cameo when Game of Thrones returns for Season 7, beginning July 16 on HBO.
