I came off Twitter Coz I was always intending to come off Twitter, had nothing to do with what people said about my game of thrones cameo, because I am in game of thrones, why the hell would I worry what people thought about that.

"It was lovely working with Ed. He is one of the nicest guys in the world. He's lovely, he's a team player, he wants to do a good job, he takes direction, he's very open. He's a big fan of the show and was really excited to be a part of it", GOT director added.

"I think his lovely voice was used to great effect and he just has a really nice presence. He blends into the world of the show in a nice way where if you didn't have all these associations with him and his musical career, nobody would even blink about his presence on the show," Podeswa said.
