Looking at Ed Sheeran you can't help but feel he is a man continually perplexed by the magnitude of his fame. When boasting about bedding Taylor Swift's lady squad (pics or it didn't happen) or cameos in Game of Thrones, he acts like the drunk man on the top floor of the night bus singing his accomplishments from the rooftops.
And today, he's chuffed to bits about the fact that he doesn't get brutally murdered in his cameo on the show. Speaking to The Daily Star about his forthcoming role he said, "I do know which role I'm going to play," before adding: "I don't die in it. I don't die."
A smug statement that basically reads like: "I survived the Seven Kingdoms lads, strummed few tunes to the white walkers, didn't I?"
"I'm only in it for like five minutes," he added. "I'd probably prefer to have sex than die in the show. I'm sure a lot of people are into that [him dying] but I'm not."
Not sure what we were expecting - after all, lyrics from one song on his new album are: "Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes / Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends / Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don't reckon that I did it right"
Not exactly someone you'd use budget for a huge death scene on.
