Ed Sheeran gets cuddly with some kittens while answering questions about his new Apple Music documentary Songwriter, which Hogwarts house he would belong to, what happened to his Game of Thrones character, and more.
Early in his career, Ed Sheeran was often mistaken for Rupert Grint, the actor who played Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies. But Ed says if he really was a classmate of Harry’s at Hogwarts, they probably wouldn’t have hung out much at all.
In a video for Buzzfeed, in which he answers fan questions while playing with kittens Ed is asked to choose which house in Hogwarts he’d be in. “I always thought I’d probably be Hufflepuff,” he admits.
“Slytherin’s, like, pure, pure blood and I’m kind of like mixed between Irish and English. And Ravenclaw’s very smart,” he laughs. “Gryffindor’s like, really brave and Hufflepuff just kinda’s the one that isn’t! So I guess I’d be Hufflepuff.”
Ed also commented on what he thinks happened to the soldier he played in one episode of Game of Thrones.
“I know what Game of Thrones fans hope happened to my character,” Ed laughs. “I’m sure they think my character got brutally, brutally murdered! But I think my character is still out there. He’s just chillin’.”
