    Even Hodor Wasn't A Fan Of That Ed Sheeran "GoT" Cameo

    "I was like ‘Why is Ed Sheeran here?’"

    Ok, so if you'll remember, Ed Sheeran made a cameo in Game of Thrones last summer as a Lannister soldier.

    And, well...people kinda hated it.

    Turns out, fans were not the only ones who weren't here for the cameo. Kristian Nairn, who played Hodor in the show, held nothing back when he was asked about Sheeran's appearance.

    In an interview with Huffington Post, Nairn said, "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.”

    "Especially Ed Sheeran," he added. "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?' t’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?"

    Personally, I'm always happy to see Ed Sheeran — whether it's in Westeros or at a concert — so I don't think it's a big deal. Let me know what you think, bye!
