Ed Sheeran Appears In Season Premiere Of 'Game Of Thrones'

Ed Sheeran’s highly-anticipated cameo in Game of Thrones happened on Sunday’s season premiere.

In the roughly four-minute scene, Sheeran sings with a group of Lannister soldiers in the forest.

“Hands of gold are always cold, but a woman’s hands are warm,” he sings as Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) arrives on horseback.

“It’s a pretty song,” she says. “I’ve never heard it before.”

Sheeran’s character replies: “It’s a new one.”

Later in the scene, the singer delivers another line: “Worst place in the world.”

Fans had fun on social media with Sheeran's GoT appearance.

"The Ed Sheeran scene was actually an interesting moment/departure that was overshadowed by putting Ed Sheeran in it," tweeted New York Times TV critic James Poniewozik.

Viewer Brandy Jensen posted: "Ed Sheeran appearing on game of thrones but not being brutally disemboweled was very disappointing."

The Guardian's Stuart Heritage called Sheeran's cameo a "dud" but said the singer's "go-nowhere campfire song" on the show "was better than 'Galway Girl.'"

Game of Thrones airs on HBO Canada.
