'Game of Thrones' Director Defends Ed Sheeran's Cameo

The director of the Game of Thrones premiere, Jeremy Podeswa, is defending Ed Sheeran for his cameo after Twitter was polarized over his appearance during the episode.

“I’m a bit surprised that people have made that much fuss about it. To me, he does seem quite organic, in his own way, to the show,” Jeremy told Daily Beast.

“The truth is, everybody on the show is famous now. So it doesn’t mean anything to me. It’s about, are they appropriate for the role? Are they doing a good job? And it was yes, yes, yes to all those questions with him,” Jeremy continued, adding Ed was “delightful” to direct. Ed deleted his Twitter account hours after his cameo aired.

“He is a lovely person; he’s really down-to-earth. If you didn’t know that he was a pop star or an entertainer of any kind, you would think he’s just one of the guys. And he is. He really just wanted to do a great job. He’s been acting for a little while; he takes it very seriously. And he was a real trouper, too. We were shooting in the middle of nowhere in Northern Ireland. He sat around outside with the cast and crew all day long, and just kind of hung out and was good-humored and lovely. He took direction well. He really could not have been nicer,” Jeremy continued.

“It is a funny thing because I really, genuinely believe that if you didn’t know who he was, you would have just thought he was one of the gang, effortlessly,” he concluded.

“When I heard first heard about the Faceless Men, I always thought it would be really cool if she switched faces with a leading character rather than an unknown person’s face. I really hope [viewers] don’t guess it’s her straight away,” Maisie told EW. “It’s so f—ed up! Even Arya is surprised she has so much power. In that last moment she’s staring out at all those men dying, she’s turned into a bit more of a monster than she’s ever realized. I don’t think she’s sad about that but she’s got it on her mind.”

If you missed it, Maisie also had a scene with Ed Sheeran!
