PHOENIX – Game of Thrones fans finally have some closure as to what happened to Ed Sheeran’s character in the show.
You might recall that the singer made a cameo in Season 7 as a Lannister soldier named Ed. The scene quickly became one of the show’s most roasted moments and Sheeran was brutally mocked.
Despite the negative responses, Sheeran mentioned he had fun being in the show. He later admited he thought they should have “killed” him off in the episode, but the showrunners had something else in mind.
In the recent premiere for Season 8, Ed Sheeran’s character was briefly referenced. Turns out, “Ed” had his face burned off by a dragon but miraculously survived the incident. Still, he lives his life with no eyelids, which sounds awful!
So there you go. The closure you didn’t know you needed.
