What was Ed Sheeran doing on
    2017-July-20  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

‘Game of Thrones?’There was a conspicuous addition to the cast during the Season 7 premiere of “Game of Thrones.” As Arya Stark made her way on horseback through the Riverlands after murdering the entire Frey clan, she was captivated by the sound of harmonic cheesiness floating on the breeze. She had stumbled upon a musically-inclined group of soldiers, including one played by pop star Ed Sheeran, who was leading a folk song.

It was a little jarring to see the ginger megastar — a Taylor Swift bestie with copious tattoos — wearing armor and a red cape passing around blackberry wine and a charred rodent. But, Harry Styles plays a soldier in Christopher Nolan’s new war movie “Dunkirk,” so who are we to judge? The question is: What was Sheeran doing there? Because the show doesn’t usually resort to stunt casting. It doesn’t need to.

It’s actually a sweet story. Twenty-year-old actress Maisie Williams, who plays Arya, is a huge fan of the “Shape of You” hit-maker, so showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss recruited him for an episode as a surprise for her. Growing up in the limelight is no picnic, as Williams and her onscreen sister Sophie Turner can attest, but it does have its perks.

Sheeran had warned fans that it wasn’t much of a scene. In an April interview, he broke the cardinal rule of “Game of Thrones” actor interviews by revealing what would happen during his scene.

“I don’t die in it,” he explained. “I’m only in it for like five minutes.”

He also said he’d rather portray a “Game of Thrones” character who has sex than one who dies, but he didn’t get to do either. He had only a couple of lines.

After Arya told him she liked his song, he said, “It’s a new one.” Then he mostly just sat around while more experienced actors did the talking. It wasn’t entirely a throwaway scene. The soldiers are important simply because they’re nice to Arya, offering her food and booze, before explaining their role as peacemakers in the Riverlands. Just after murdering an entire clan in a Red Wedding redux, the young assassin meets a group of people who live by the golden rule. Words to Learn

《权游》新一季首集人气歌星艾德•希兰现身

《权游》第7季的卡司中有一位新演员非常显眼。艾莉亚•史塔克将佛雷家族团灭后,骑马穿过河间地时被空中飘来的一阵清唱和声所吸引,她偶遇了一群喜欢音乐的士兵。其中一位领唱民谣的士兵由人气明星艾德•希兰扮演。

这位黄发巨星满身文身,还是霉霉的“好闺蜜”,看他穿着铠甲、身披红色斗

篷,为大家倒黑莓酒和传递烤野味时的样子感觉略显违和。但是,哈里•斯泰尔斯都可以在克里斯托弗•诺兰的新电影《敦刻尔

克》中扮演军人,我们还能说什么呢?问题是:希兰在《权游》中起到了什么作用?因为这部剧通常是不会靠明星演员来吸引观众的。这根本是多此一举。

其实,这是一个很有爱的故事。艾莉亚的扮演者、20岁的女演员麦茜•威廉姆斯是热门歌曲《Shape of You》的原唱希兰的超级粉丝。所以《权游》制片人大卫•贝尼奥夫和D•B•维斯邀请黄老板客串一集,给威廉姆斯一个惊喜。在聚光灯下长大并不是一件容易的事情,威廉姆斯和她的荧屏好姐妹索菲•特纳就是例证。但是这种生活也的确有它的好处。

希兰曾提醒粉丝这不过是一个无足轻重的场景。在今年4月份的采访中,他打破了《权游》演员的基本守则,剧透了他的戏份。他说:“我在《权游》中不会挂掉,大概只出现5分钟。”希兰还称,他宁愿演一场床戏,也不愿意在剧中挂掉,但是这两种戏他都没演。他只有几句台词。在艾莉亚告诉希兰自己喜欢他的歌声时,他说:“这是一首新歌。”之后大部分时间他就坐在旁

边,听其他有经验的演员对话。这不完全是个随意的场景。这些士兵很重要,因为他们对艾莉亚很友好,给了她食物和酒,向她解释他们是河间地的和平卫士。刚为报“血色婚礼”之仇而灭掉一个家族后,她就遇到了一群坚守黄金法则的善良之士。
