The long-awaited cameo, which had been teased since March, sees the singer-songwriter do what he does best; singing by the campfire with his fellow soldiers. "Game Of Thrones: Here's Arya eating a squirrel next to Ed Sheeran".
If you were hiding under a rock last night you might have missed premiere of season 7 of HBO's hit show "Game of Thrones".
In the scene, the character played by Ed fed Arya along with other soldiers and asked her where she was headed?
"Game of Thrones" Season 7 episode 2 spoilers suggest that the focus will be on Daenerys who will have an unexpected visit from a stranger. Another poked fun at the lines in the episode, tweeting: "Arya: That's a pretty song".
China GDP growth surprises on the upside
Confidence in the robustness of the recovery was not universal, however. China's factory output grew 7.6% in June, the fastest in three months.
Fans of the HBO series took to social media to vent their frustration, unable to watch the show on Foxtel Now. True to form, Sheeran is singing a soulful tune - plucked straight from the "A Song of Ice and Fire" novels - which Arya uses to break the ice.
However, the premiere experienced a slight setback as HBO.com was down during the season premiere.
While other fans wrote, "Am the only @GameOfThrones fan that doesn't get to watch the premiere tonight cause HBO has been processing for hours..." And it seems like Ed was just as excited as we presume Arya the Assassin was when she found out, because he took to Instagram during Sunday's premiere to post behind-the-scene pics. "Why did they put Ed Sheeran on GoT... it feels less authentic and cheap", said another.
And Sheeran isn't the only musician to have had a cameo on the programme, as Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody, Coldplay drummer Will Champion, Sigur Ros and Mastadon have all made appearances in the past.
