‘Game Of Thrones’ director Jeremy Podeswa has jumped to the defence of Ed Sheeran, after his cameo in the series opener didn’t exactly win over fans of the show.

While many questioned why Ed was included in the episode at all, Jeremy has insisted that his small musical role was a good addition to the show.

In the wake of the backlash, Ed deleted his Twitter account, having admitted weeks prior that he was fed up of being on the receiving end of negative comments, which he said were becoming a “head fuck” for him.
