LONDON: Ed Sheeran has thanked "Game of Thrones" writers for not killing off his character in the HBO series.

The singer appeared as Eddie, a Lannister soldier, in the seventh season premiere episode of the show on the request of his friend, series star Maisie Williams (who plays Arya Stark).

In the episode, Sheeran's character is seen crooning a song as a part of the chance encounter with Williams' Arya.

Eddie was, however, nowhere to be seen or talked about in the series till the eighth season premiere -- where one of the prostitutes says she had heard the character's face was "burned right off" and had no eyelids after he was subjected to one of Daenerys Targeryen's three dragons' fire.
