The Grammy Award-winning singer announced he would be taking a break from Twitter for the time being but Sheeran has since returned after a brief absence.

"I think Ed did a lovely job - he's a lovely actor and a lovely person", Podeswa said to Newsweek.

People believed that Sheeran's voice and recognizable face stole the spotlight, but Podeswa is convinced that his presence hasn't proved too distracting.

He added to Newsweek: "If people didn't know who Ed was, they wouldn't have thought about it twice". Sheeran isn't even the first musical artist to appear on GoT. Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol, Will Champion from Coldplay, Sigur Rós, and members of Mastodon have all appeared on the series before.

Many came out in full support of Sheeran suggesting him ways to deal with trolls. Also, Sheeran's appearance was lengthier and included both singing and speaking. "None of them can walk down the street without being followed".

If you haven't seen the much talked about cameo yet, check the video out below.

So for Podeswa, the only thing he regrets about the cameo is how people are reacting and how it could be affecting the star.

Ed's appearance caused uproar amongst the show's die-hard fans, and the singer subsequently deleted his Twitter account because of it.

"The only thing I don't feel great about is that Ed is such a lovely guy and really genuine and down to earth", Podeswa said.

However, the "A Team" singer has garnered praise from the director of the show who has praised his short role saying that he is a "lovely performer" who "deserved to be there". I think the scene with The Hound at the farmhouse was another one.

Podeswa's defense of Sheeran definitely offers another perspective on the controversial cameo for angry fans.

Game of Thrones is HBO's flagship series, so it's not like SheeranGate is going to cripple the network.
