See How Twitter SHREDDED Ed Sheeran's 'Game of Thrones' Cameo

(USA TODAY ) Fans tune into "Game of Thrones" expecting to see beheadings, dragons and White Walkers. Last night, however, they got Ed Sheeran.

The performer made a cameo on the Season 7 premiere, playing one of the singing soldiers who Arya came across in the woods after offing the entire Frey family. After hearing him sing, she tells him, "That's a pretty song" and she joins them for some food and drink.

According to creator David Benioff, they wanted to get Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie Williams, who is a superfan of his music in real life. Mission accomplished.
