It's Not Just You, Game of Thrones Fans - Pilou Asbæk Says Euron Was "Such a F*cking Idiot"

It's Not Just You, Game of Thrones Fans - Pilou Asbæk Says Euron Was
If there is one Game of Thrones character who has garnered pretty universal disdain over the past few seasons, it's Euron Greyjoy. From his undeserved sense of achievement to his incessant use of innuendo and even his terrible taste in fashion among people who clearly believe that gray is the new black (it's not), there's just a lot about Euron that makes him hard to stand. And that's not even counting how much he enjoys inflicting pain - both physical and mental - on other people.

Luckily, actor Pilou Asbæk knows his character is the worst - and he embraces that! "You're probably only going to do a character like Euron Greyjoy once in your life because he's such a f*cking idiot," Asbæk said in an interview with BuzzFeed News. "And you don't want to keep doing those roles because you want to develop as well, but he was

Game of Thrones: This Extremely Out-There Theory Suggests Jaime Is Somehow Still Alive
You know the drill. Game of Thrones spoilers below.

Guys, we all saw the Red Keep crumble on top of Cersei and Jaime Lannister at the end of Game of Thrones' penultimate episode, right? I'm only asking because it appears some fans are convinced Jaime didn't die from the weight of crashing pillars and falling stones, and instead survived the ruin to appear in the series finale. Some might call this denying the cold hard facts, but let's dig into this latest theory that assumes Jaime is, in fact, very much alive.

Tumblr user Weeds Are Flowers Too went full Charlie Day freak-out over the real-life details surrounding Jaime's death and came to the conclusion that Jaime hasn't been celebrated enough to be off the show completely. "Why isn't Anyone acknowledging that Jaime Lannister just died??? Why is nobody in the cast thanking Nik for his performance?" the user wrote.

The Best TV Characters Critics Had to Learn to Love — IndieWire Critics Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday.

This week’s question: Who is a TV character you learned to love or grew on you? This could be because more was revealed about the character, the character evolved, or you the viewer evolved.

Liz Shannon Miller (@lizlet), IndieWire

In the early days of “Game of Thrones,” I (as a former tomboy) identified strongly with Arya, and I still have a deep fondness for the character. But as Sansa Stark has grown up, it’s become clear she’s more and more capable of owning the show, and my growing respect for what Sansa has gone through over the years has endeared her to me… at least until this season and some very poor writing choices on the part of Benioff and Weiss. But despite those choices, I’ve been surprised

Game of Thrones' Lena Headey Bids Farewell to Cersei Lannister: "I Loved Her"

Game of Thrones' Lena Headey Bids Farewell to Cersei Lannister:
So, you've had time to digest what happened in Game of Thrones' "The Bells." It was…a lot. Warning, spoilers follow! In the penultimate episode of the series, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) destroyed King's Landing atop her dragon—and a lot of people died! But not all of them died at the hands and fire of Dany and Drogon. Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) died in each other's arms, but first Jaime took out Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk). Told you it was a lot. After the episode aired, the actors behind some of these fan-favorite and fan-hated characters took to social media to bid adieu. "There she goes. It's...

Spoiler Alert: Do not keep reading if you have not seen Episode 5 of Season 8 of “Game of Thrones,” titled “The Bells.”

This week’s episode of “Game of Thrones” saw a multitude of major characters make their bloody exits from the show.

Pilou Asbæk, who plays the mad pirate king Euron Greyjoy, spoke with Variety about how he was a fan of the show long before signing on to star, what motivated his final showdown with Jaime Lannister, and whether he loves or hates Euron now that all is said and done.

How’s it going today?

I died last night on “Game of Thrones” but I’m happy, and sad, but also happy.

What was your initial reaction to learning Euron was “the man who killed Jaime Lannister?”

'Game of Thrones' Star on Final Season Death: "Some People Just Want to See the World Burn"

[This story contains spoilers for season eight, episode five of HBO's Game of Thrones, "The Bells."]

Game of Thrones' final stand between kraken and dragon came down to two other animals entirely: the scorpion and the lion.

For his last act, actor Pilou Asbæk's Euron Greyjoy did his level best to shoot Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) out of the sky. Heading into "The Bells," the Iron Islander's track record was a good one; just one episode earlier, he struck the fatal blow against Rhaegal, one of Dany's two remaining dragons. In the rematch, however? Not ...

‘Game Of Thrones’ Penultimate Episode’s Fatal Battle Royale Reveals It Ain’t Ever Over Until It’s Over

‘Game Of Thrones’ Penultimate Episode’s Fatal Battle Royale Reveals It Ain’t Ever Over Until It’s Over
Spoiler Alert: This article contains details of tonight’s penultimate episode of Game of Thrones’ eighth & final season.

If you thought the swords on Game of Thrones were being fundamentally sheathed after the long and dark battle of Winterfell a few weeks ago, tonight’s expanded second-to-last “The Bells” episode of the HBO blockbuster burned down the house or at least the armada of the Iron Fleet and most of King’s Landing.

Harking to the best of World War II films, the long near silence of the carnage to come is broken about halfway through tonight’s 82-minute finale when, like a Spitfire mixed with a flying fortress over the English Channel, a fully armored Daenerys Targaryen’s (Emilia Clarke) and her remaining dragon Drogan come screaming through the clouds like angels of death to obliterate the pirate fleet of Cersei Lannister’s (Lena Headey) latest lover and main line of offense,

Game of Thrones: Euron Greyjoy is the Worst

Alec Bojalad May 6, 2019

Game of Thrones, a show not wanting for compelling villains, somehow saved its worst for last.

The following contains spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 8.

In the history of Game of Thrones, only two people are known to have pulled off the near-impossible task of killing a dragon.

One was an icy blue manifestation of death itself, set on ending the world and any record of it ever existing. The other is a dingy pirate cosplayer who doesn't realize that his shirt has top buttons and whose entire modus operandi is to bang the queen.

Yes, in Game of Thrones season 8, episode 4 "The Last of the Starks," Euron Greyjoy kills a freaking dragon. Euron Greyjoy. Winner of the Kingsmoot on Pyke. Theon's uncle. Dumb Jack Sparrow. That guy. He takes down Rhaegal with a handful of scorpion bolts. 

The killing of one of Dany's precious children is

The Trailer for Game of Thrones' Penultimate Episode Will Leave You Shook
It's all come down to this: Cersei Lannister vs. Daenerys Targaryen. In the trailer for the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, not a word is uttered. There's just Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), scheming, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) looking very concerned, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk) alternating between appearing very ready and very nervous. Talk about a tense 30 seconds. And this is the episode that Emilia Clarke warned viewers about during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. "Episode five is bigger," Clarke said about what's to come. "Episode five is [exhales]—I mean, four and five and six, they're all insane, but...

‘Game Of Thrones’ Final Season Bodycount & Stakes Rise With Last Week’s Battle Of Winterfell & Fight For The Iron Throne

‘Game Of Thrones’ Final Season Bodycount & Stakes Rise With Last Week’s Battle Of Winterfell & Fight For The Iron Throne
The Night King is dead on Game of Thrones, but long live the true ruthless ruler of the Seven Kingdoms …whoever that may turn out to be.

Swiveling off last week’s long, dark and seemingly defining battle of Winterfell and the victory over the Army of the Dead and its blue-eyed leader, tonight’s “The Last of the Starks” fourth episode of the eighth and final season of the HBO blockbuster series validated that much-repeated expression of Ronald Reagan’s of “you ain’t seen nothing yet.”

The inferred braggadocio came with the return of Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) to the David Benioff and D.B. Weiss executive produced multiple Emmy winning drama after a total absence last week. However, unlike the Great Communicator, the Queen came looking for blood and to send a message.

That message was conveyed sharply to rival Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) by the killing of

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8, Episode 4: Daenerys Plots Her Takeover of King’s Landing in New Photos
Game of Thrones” has released new photos from the upcoming fourth episode of the show’s eighth and final season.

In the eight pictures from Sunday’s installment (which HBO has yet to release a title for), it appears Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) is plotting her trek down to King’s Landing, now that the Battle of Winterfell has been won, thanks to Arya’s (Maisie Williams) epic slaying of the Night King and thus the entire undead army under his command. At the Mother of Dragons’ side are Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) and Varys (Conleth Hill), suggesting who might be Dany’s most loyal followers at this point.

Other photos show the aftermath of last Sunday’s “The Long Night,” and the giant pile of dead bodies outside the Starks’ ancestral home, which are about to be burned on pyres by Dany, Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) and

So, the Battle of Winterfell is over. What happens next on Game of Thrones? "We have won the great war," Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) says in the trailer for season eight, episode four. "Now, we will win the last war." Yep, the Night King is dead, taken down by Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), and with him his army. But at great cost. So many people died! Rip Lyanna Mormont, Jorah Mormont, Theon Greyjoy, and everybody else who valiantly took up arms against the dead. However, those that survive now have a little problem to deal with: Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey). While everyone was battling the dead, Cersei was sitting in King's Landing with Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk), getting...
