There are many Game of Thrones conspiracies, and one in particular is how Ed Sheeran managed to sneak into the show without appearing on screen. This also raises some questions about whether or not he’s a Stark
Ed Sheeran’s cameo in Game of Thrones was a bit dodgy, but Peter Dinklage has explained the reasoning behind it.
He also expressed his delight that the program had come to an end after ten years (AP/Rex).
Peter Dinklage has spoken out about his feelings regarding Ed Sheeran’s appearance on Game of Thrones.
The 52-year-old actor went on The Graham Norton Program and was asked whether he was pleased when the successful show ended after ten years.
‘Yes,’ he said quickly. It was time to move on, no matter how difficult it was. We usually go away for a few months and have amazing friendships before never seeing each other again, but this was a family – I lived in Ireland, so it wasn’t just the show for me; it was a life, and it was the toughest thing to leave.’
Comedian Joe Lycett chimed in with a remark on Ed Sheeran’s involvement in the series, which was one of several celebrity cameos.
‘I am a huge fan of the show and have seen every episode. The only time I have a problem with it is when they include appearances, most notably Ed Sheeran! I like Ed Sheeran and I like Game of Thrones, but I didn’t like how they crossed over in the Venn diagram. It pulled me out of the situation.’
‘If you’re going to put them in, do it correctly and kill them, actually kill them,’ he said. I wanted him to perform Shape of You while Peter slashes him with an axe!’

‘I guess it was because we really wanted rock stars around — a lot of those deals were probably done in the bar, and then when they actually showed up it was like, “Oh crap, now we have to write a scene for them!”‘ Peter explained how celebrities got up in the long-running drama.
The first season of Game of Thrones premiered in 2011 and lasted eight seasons.
Peter played Tyrion Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones, for which he earned a record four Primetime Emmy Awards for best supporting actor in a drama series.
Ed appeared in the seventh season of Game of Thrones as a Lannister soldier who crossed paths with Maisie Williams’ character Ayra Stark in the season opener, Dragonstone.

The Bad Habits singer previously said that he ‘didn’t anticipate blowback’ for his appearance, and that he would be more cautious about accepting acting roles in the future.
‘I feel like I pissed off a lot of people by participating in that, but whenever I meet someone who says, ‘Oh you cameoed on that show,’ I’m like, “What would you say?” he told Absolute Radio last month.
‘Everyone would say yeah,’ says the narrator. They requested me to join in the show since I was a fan. I wasn’t expecting such a strong reaction, but I’ll be more cautious in the future if I’m given cameos.’
