In Game of Thrones S08E01 Winterfell, when Bronn is in a brothel, one of the girls recalls a ginger Eddie

Girl 1: That boy Eddie...
Girl 2: The ginger?
Girl 1: That's him. Came back with his face burnt right off. He's got no eyelids now.

I saw a facebook post where some fan claimed that this ginger Eddie is referencing Ed Sheeran, who was in S07E01. He was a Lannister soldier, in the Twins area. Daenerys later attacks Lannister soldiers with her Dragons in S07E04.

Is there any official confirmation that this ginger Eddie is actually Ed Sheeran?

One of the things we do know for sure is that Sheeran's Character was called Ed.

Sheeran does have red hair, and as per the season seven scripts, his character's name was Ed.

It's likely he's dead because of the fans' negative reaction to his cameo which even he awknoledged.

"No one wants to see me come back," Sheeran told MTV. "I wanted to be a cameo in it, and I've done the cameo. I'm cool with it, though. I enjoyed it."
