Ed Sheeran made a cameo on the season 7 premiere Game Thrones last summer, but not everyone was here for the singer's appearance.
The cameo especially rubbed actor Kristian Nairn (who portrays Hodor on the show) the wrong way, as he expressed in a June 26 interview.
“I’m not a fan the cameos in Game Thrones. I don’t like them. I think it’s stupid,” he told Huffington Post. “I don’t mind going on the record on that. I just think it takes you right out the world.”
Regarding Sheeran’s specific cameo, the star said, “I mean, Ed Sheeran’s great. He’s a great guy, great musician, but why is he in Game Thrones?…It’s a fantasy show. We’re all caught in this amazing world and spend so much time and money and talent to create, and all a sudden there’s a pop star? What?”
Sheeran plays a Lannister soldier in the episode, and although fans might expect Arya (Maise Williams) to kill his characters without hesitation, instead, she lets him sit down to sing a song. “It’s a new one,” he says.
Fans took the opportunity to mock the show on social media; you can see some the tweets and watch Sheeran's cameo below.
