This is a good thing for fans of Arya who don't want her affinity for assassinating everyone who has wronged the Stark family to get in the way of her humanity. The 26-year-old famous British singer appeared 39 minutes into the episode that was aired on July 16.

In less aggravating news, the song that Sheeran sings, titled Hands of Gold, appeared in the original books, albeit in quite a different manner.

He played the role of a Lannister soldier in the episode, singing a song that Arya Stark approves of.

Game of Thrones season 7 premiered last night on HBO, and by all indications, was a huge success! "I've never heard it before", Arya says.


Ed took to his Instagram following the airing of the episode to show his excitement.

Based on George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" novel series, Arya and Nymeria had a very strong bond, which allowed them to communicate in dreams.

IANS reported that while talking about the cameo on the popular show last month, he said "I haven't seen it yet!"

The awkwardness of the scene had very little to do with Sheeran's performance - which was actually quite lovely - and more to do with the fact that it seemed like at any moment these soldiers were going to jump Arya and do something bad to her. We will just have to wait and see. Unlike Sheeran's scene, most of these guest stars had no lines of dialogue, and their cameos were easy to miss.


Others just found it amusing, and made their jokes. "It's not an integral part of it, at all".

It was revealed in March the Photograph hitmaker would have an appearance on the show because Maisie is a big fan of the award-winning singer.

"For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie [Williams], and this year we finally did it", the producers explained.

Social media was popping after the Castle on the Hill crooner's cameo on the medieval-themed program, which has past welcomed musicians Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol) and Will Champion (Coldplay) in front of its cameras.
