'Game of Thrones' Star Didn't Like Ed Sheeran's Cameo

Kristian Nairn, who plays Hodor on Game of Thrones, wasn’t a fan of Ed Sheeran‘s famous cameo on Game of Thrones.

“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,” he told Huffington Post. “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?’” he continued.

“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?” he added.

    Completely agree. Ed Sheeran is not bad at all, but I totally understand what he means when he says it takes you out of that world. Could you imagine seeing Rhianna in Dorne? Or Taylor Swift as a white walker?

    They only used Ed because of his physical appearance.And how he kind of looked like he belonged. But that wasnt enough for him to fill that role.
