Villains in “Game of Thrones” come and go but there is one bad element that fans might have to prepare for when the show returns. Euron Greyjoy, who is played by Danish actor Pilou Asbæk, was introduced in a couple of episodes in season 6.
Euron will have a bigger participation in “Game of Thrones” season 7. Asbæk warned, however, that it might not be easy to dismiss his character in the coming episodes as Euron is terrifying than Ramsay Bolton.
Speaking with Empire magazine on print, Asbæk said that his character’s evil side is worse than any of the “Game of Throne’s” villains, including the tormentor Ramsay. Asbæk also revealed he played out Euron to be this psychotic person with different shades of evilness.
From being charming to becoming a “molester” to wanting to “kill someone,” Euron will make Ramsay “look like a little kid,” the actor described what viewers will see in “Game of Thrones” season 7. He added Euron’s “changeable character” will make him the most dangerous villain to appear on the show.
Fans speculate Euron and Cersei (Lena Headey) will align when the show returns, especially after Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) hinted his character and twin sister/lover Cersei will drift apart. A new suitor will come in between them and fans are certain this will be Euron.
Meanwhile, last season also saw Euron taking claim over his brother’s rule in the Iron Islands, which forced his niece and nephew, Yara (Gemma Whelan) and Theon (Alfie Allen), to leave their home. They feared that they would be killed too as Euron was responsible for the murder of their father, King Balon (Patrick Malahan).
Yara and Theon sought help from Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and it’s still unclear how this will play out in “Game of Thrones” season 7. The show’s upcoming premiere will be on Sunday, July 16 on HBO.
