In the Game Of Thrones, you either win a Grammy, or you die, apparently. Hence Hobbit troubadour Ed Sheeran’s recently stated conviction that he’ll survive his quick cameo on the massively successful HBO show, telling interviewers, “I do know which role I am going to play. I don’t die in it, I don’t die.”
And while that sounds a bit like the floppy-haired Brit-rocker doth protest too much, the odds are on his side: Of the many musical cameos on Game Of Thrones, only the members of Mastodon have met their untimely end. Still, Sheeran decided to press his luck a bit, adding, “I’d probably prefer to have sex than die in the show. I’m sure a lot of people are into that but I’m not.” So, hey, if you see a flash of red hair going to town on someone in the show’s next bout of sexposition, you’ll know Sheeran got his wish.
