‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Was Not On Board With Ed Sheeran’s Infamous Cameo

Ed Sheeran’s cameo appearance on Game of Thrones aired nearly a year ago, but that doesn’t mean fans are over it. It seems a member of the cast was none too pleased either. In an interview with the Huffington Post, Kristian Nairn, who portrays faithful servant Hodor, wasn’t too fond of the pop crooner showing up in Westeros. 

Nairn had this to say about Sheeran’s acting turn as a singing Lannister soldier:

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 of a sudden there’s a pop star? What? 

To be fair, Nairn doesn’t have anything against Sheeran, in fact he’s a fan. 

Especially Ed Sheeran. I was like, ‘Why is Ed Sheeran here?’ I mean, Ed Sheeran’s great. He’s a great guy, great musician, but why is he in ‘Game of Thrones’? 

I’m not saying I’m not a fan of Ed Sheeran. I’m being tactful here, but just not a fan of the cameo. I think most people would agree with me there. It was a big snap to reality. It’s like, ‘What? What? 

 It’s cameos in general that ruffle his feathers.  

I’m not a fan of the cameos in ‘Game of Thrones.’ I don’t like them. I think it’s stupid. I don’t mind going on the record on that. I just think it takes you right out of the world. 

People may never get over the cameo.

Ouch! That’s kind of harsh. 

Some folks liked the cameo. 

But the majority could do without seeing Sheeran in Westeros again. 

But it’s not Sheeran’s fault, as this Twitter user points out. 

We’d do it, even if it meant we’d be forever mocked in memes.
