English ac­tor So­phie Turner (left) has praised singer Ed Sheeran’s (above) cameo on sea­son seven pre­miere of Game Of Thrones. Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in the fan­tasy drama se­ries, says Sheeran to­tally nailed it.

The Shape of You hit­maker re­ceived a lot of crit­i­cism for his brief ap­pear­ance on the show. In an in­ter­view with En­ter­tain­ment Tonight, Turner said, “I thought he killed it. Ed Sheeran is a hero! No one slay Ed Sheeran! That’s rude.”

Sheeran, 26, was brought on board to sur­prise one of the cast mem­bers Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on the show. But Turner re­vealed that she ac­ci­den­tally ru­ined the sur­prise by telling her co-star about it.

“That was fun be­cause Maisie loves Ed Sheeran and (cre­ators) David (Be­nioff) and Dan (Weiss) had it as, like, a sur­prise for her. So they just, they didn’t tell her. I told her by ac­ci­dent! I was like, ‘Oh, when’s Ed Sheeran com­ing on the show?’ But yeah, they kind of did it as a sur­prise. I was kind of mad be­cause I've been talk­ing about (Justin) Bieber com­ing on the show for a while now. But it’s fine, I’m over it,” said Turner.
