First there was Joffrey. Then there was Ramsay. Now there’s Euron?
As Independent points out, Pilou Asbæk, who plays Euron Greyjoy on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” told Empire for their Season 7 issue that by the finish of the arriving season, “Ramsay’s gonna demeanour like a little kid.”
Fans of HBO’s chronological anticipation series know just how infamous Ramsay Bolton was — as he was horrifically infamous to his fight prisoner, Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen), castrating him and gripping him as a pet called “Reek.” Ramsay also sexually abused Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and killed his own father, Roose Bolton (Michael McElhatton), who was the Warden of the North. Of course, he got what was coming to him: having his face ripped off by one of his infamous hounds. But still, he set the bar flattering high in terms of villainy.
Then there was the childish Joffrey (Jack Gleeson), ruler of the Seven Kingdoms, who emotionally tortured Sansa Stark and had her father decapitated for laughs, among other transgressions.
Yikes, how bad can Euron be if he creates these two mega-villains demeanour like warm-up acts?
“The psychos I’ve encountered have so many opposite sides to them,” Asbæk told Empire. “So any stage I’ve finished with Euron, we collect a new thing we wanna show. ‘This stage we wish to be charming.’ ‘This stage we wanna be a molester.’ ‘This stage we wanna kill someone.’ After this season, Ramsay’s gonna like like a little kid.”
Euron has only seemed in two episodes of the show — all in Season 6. First, he tosses his older brother, Balon (Patrick Malahide), from a overpass nearby Pyke, the chair of the Iron Islands.
Then, he stakes his explain as the loyal successor to the Iron Islands. He eventually outmaneuvers his niece and nephew (Yara and Theon, respectively) to turn the next duke of the islands.
He pledges to salary fight against the realm, to take Westeros. He also demands that his subjects build him 1,000 ships for his quest.
As for Yara (Gemma Whelan) and Theon, they saw the essay on the wall and fled before they could be taken into captivity.
They join ranks with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), who’s on a query of her own to take Westeros — alongside her cadre of supporters including Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage).
Daenerys promises the Greyjoys that she will support them in their try to dispose of Euron.
So, before we tumble underneath the spell of the Jeremy Podeswa-directed commander airing Jul 16, let’s take a moment to consider Euron as the next mega-villain!
