Ed Sheeran says he doesn't die in his 'Game of Thrones' cameo

This isn't what a lot of people wanted to hear

Ed Sheeran says he doesn't die in his 'Game of Thrones' cameo
05 April 2017

People had two primary emotions when it was announced that Ed Sheeran would be getting a cameo in the new season of Game of Thrones: either “I don’t care”, or “Oh god, I really hope that bastard dies”.

Well bad news, nerds, he’s not gonna die. In an interview he told The Daily Star: “I do know which role I’m going to play,” before adding: “I don’t die in it. I don’t die.”

Which leaves the door open for him to come back at the end of season eight – like, right at the very end, just as Jon/Daenerys is about sit on the Iron Throne and be crowned as leader of the Seven Kingdoms – and lob their head off, plonk his freckled arse down on the seat and sing an 30-minute extended version of ‘Galway Girl’ directly down the lens of the camera. 

“I’m only in it for like five minutes,” he added. “I’d probably prefer to have sex than die in the show. I’m sure a lot of people are into that [him dying] but I’m not.”

There his is again, Top Shagger Sheeran banging on about sex. You can’t stop him these days, he just bloody loves it. Only last month he was bragging about ‘encounters’ with members of Taylor Swift’s famous squad, which includes the likes of Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Selena Gomez.

Sure mate, totally happened.
