Pilou Asbæk says Euron Greyjoy knows he's going to die, and that his death will be 'spectacular'

Game of Thrones has had some spectacular characters over the years, and some of the best written ones have been the villains. Last season, we saw Ramsay Bolton meet his end, and as soon as that happened, we began wandering who would be filling in for the maniac in Season 7, and with two episodes in, I’m sure we have our answer : Euron Greyjoy. Played by Pilou Asbæk, the turn that his character has taken this season from mildly bad to just downright insane, has been amazing. In the last episode, we saw Euron attack the Iron fleet held by Yara Greyjoy, and there was so much violence, that Euron seemed to be thoroughly enjoying. Pilou Asbæk recently spoke to Variety about his character, his death prospects, and more. Read on!

Now, you might have felt like the Euron Greyjoy this season is a different guy. Pilou was asked if he played him differently. He replied :

“No, I’m actually doing what I did in [Season] 6 as well. I’ve always considered him to be a comedian. He was very different on the bridge than he was in the throne room, than he was at the Kingsmoot. To me he’s one of those sociopaths that can transform. He adapts to the environment that he’s in. He’s a survivor. You can say there’s been an update in the costume department.”

He also spoke about the brand new costume :

“I had a long discussion with Michele [Clapton, costume designer] and Dan and David [Weiss and Benioff, showrunners] before we started the season. I said, “Guys, we’ve established Euron. Now let’s show a guy who doesn’t give a s—. Let’s just show a guy who walk in and goes, ‘F— all of you. I want the power. And none of you can do anything about it, because I am the best.’” I wanted to be Conor McGregor — before he lost.”

He then spoke about how he felt free while playing Euron, comparing himself to a kid in a candy store, and then said that Euron knows that he will be meeting his end :

“He knows his time is spare. He knows he’s going to die at one point. And if you ask me, it’s probably going to be spectacular. I hope so. But right now, he’s in for a ride.”

He then was asked if he thought that Yara Greyjoy should have been looking out for Euron’s fleet, rather than downstairs, making out with Ellaria Sand. Pilou said :

“Why the f— would you want to be on a cold deck where it’s probably raining, when you can sit with a hot chick below deck and kiss her? I think it answers itself. I know there’s been a little bit of discussion about if they should have been more aware. But the flaws that we have as human beings are the flaws that make a story interesting. If we were 100% correct, we wouldn’t have movies. People have complained that it’s not realistic. Seriously, guys, we have dragons. But I love the discussions, because they’re among the fans. When people discuss things, it’s because they care.”

So, where do you think Euron Greyjoy heading? How do you think he will die? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa set to reunite on The Graham Norton Show

There are quite a few Game of Thrones pairings that are iconic, but the top spot belongs to Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa, without a doubt. The actors that played the onscreen couple Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo are great friends in real world. We have seen them reunite quite a lot, but the two are headed for an onscreen reunion, as they’re scheduled to appear on The Graham Norton Show. Read on!

The popular British TV series The Graham Norton Show always has the best guest pairing, and they seem to have totally nailed it this time around. Emilia and Jason will be seen together on the show’s upcoming episode scheduled to air on October 25.

Emilia is currently in the middle of promoting her upcoming film Last Christmas, while Momoa is promoting his upcoming Apple TV+ series See. The two promos seem to have come together beautifully, leading to this reunion. The show will also have Regina King, there to promote her upcoming HBO series Watchmen, and comedian Ross Noble, with Camila Cabello slated to be the performer.

The episode will air on Friday, October at 10.35pm on BBC One, for the British fans of the show. Are you excited to watch the two unite on screen after this long? We sure are. Talk to us in the comments, below!

Maisie Williams says it was “horrible” to look like a boy to play Arya Stark

Maisie Williams says it was “horrible” to look like a boy to play Arya Stark

Game of Thrones has had a lot of strong female characters, but it would be inaccurate to say that it celebrates femininity. One example is Arya Stark, who is seen as a boyish character for most of the show, and as an extension, we all ended up seeing Maisie Williams the same way. In a recent interview, she discussed what it was like to have to hide her feminine side for the role, calling the experience “horrible.” Read on!

In a recent interview with Vogue, Maisie discussed coming of age in the spotlight, and more. Starting off, she talked about “maturing” about two seasons into the production of the show:

“But Arya was still very much like trying to be disguised as a boy and I had really short hair and they constantly covered me in dirt and shaded my nose so it looked really broad and I look like, really manly.”

She continued:

“And they would also put this strap across my chest to flatten any growth that had started, and I don’t know, that just felt horrible for six months of the year.”

The only glimpse we got of Arya Stark’s femininity came in the last season of the show, with her and Gendry sharing what was the first and only romantic moment for Arya throughout the show. Maisie also said that she felt ashamed to be a girl for a while, and is enjoying her feminine side a lot more now.

Well, it’s safe to say that the fans love this side of Maisie as well. What do you feel? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Fans wonder why Isaac Hempstead Wright wasn’t on stage during Game of Thrones tribute at the Emmys

Fans wonder why Isaac Hempstead Wright wasn't on stage during Game of Thrones tribute at the Emmys

The 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards were recently held, and while Game of Thrones didn’t do as well as usual, it was the last Emmy appearance for the show. The show walked away with the Outstanding Drama Emmy, and also had a heartfelt tribute with some of the cast members.

What was surprising, however, was that the winner of the Game of Thrones (or the closest we got to it), Issac Hempstead-Wright, who played Bran Stark, was surprisingly absent from the tribute, but rather in the audience. This perplexed many of the fans:

Well, the logic seems to be that only the nominated actors were on the stage for the tribute, which isn’t a bad thing. However, being that it was the show’s last year at the site, it would’ve been better to have the entire cast on the stage.

What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments, blow down below!
