Ed Sheeran's 'Game Of Thrones' Cameo Defended By Episode's Director

'The hoo-ha seems to be from things that are outside of the world of the show.'

‘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.
