:? Eeh! Not even Wikipedia claims that Ed Sheeran is the SUBJECT of that song, although it is considered a response to his song "Don't"... The answer I have in mind is a song that is definitely about a person who is a regular cast member of GoT, not just a celebrity stunt cameo.

A clue - think celebrity families.

I have never watched it so I based my answer on likely contenders encountered during a quick glance at the cast list :-)

No guesses for a while, so it's time to reveal this one...

Lily Allen wrote her 2007 single 'Alfie' about her brother. Alfie Allen plays Theon Greyjoy in Game Of Thrones.
