Ed Sheeran's cameo on the Season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones might have delighted some fans, but the resounding majority seemed to mock the singer's inclusion and now a cast member is also chucking in his two cents.
"I'm not a fan of the cameos in 'Game of Thrones.' I don't like them. I think it's stupid," says Kristan. "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 adds. "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'?"
For Kristan, whose is also a part-time DJ and whose character was killed off in the series (OMG—we are still very emosh' about that one ;( ), having a real life star tampers with the fantasy aspect the show.
"It was a big snap to reality," he tells HuffPo. "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?'"
Controversial but... we agree with Kristan.
