Some people only dream of meeting the stars of "Game of Thrones," and some people have the cast unexpectedly drop by their house late at night.
Singer Ed Sheeran is one of the lucky ones. While visiting the "Em Rusciano Radio Show with Harley Breen" on Australia's 104.1 2DAY FM on Monday, he opened up about a fun visit from several of the HBO series' stars, including Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), and Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy).
No, the actors didn't get lost on their way to Winterfell. Sheeran already knew them all individually, and they decided to stop by together one night after a "Game of Thrones" wrap party. The singer had been at the party himself, he shared, but he left almost as soon as he walked in because the huge crowd made him anxious.
"I just kind of walked in and was like, 'ooh, no, no, don't like this,'" Sheeran told the radio show hosts.
He went home and started getting ready for bed, but then the group sent him a text letting him know they were at his house. Apparently unfazed, Sheeran let them in to play some late-night games of pool. No big deal.
Interestingly, although Sheeran is clearly close to the cast, his "Game of Thrones" knowledge seems to need some work. He and the hosts weren't very good at naming the character each actor plays; they initially confused Arya and Sansa, and described Theon only as the one who "lost his penis." Next time, maybe they should review some "Thrones" basics with him.
