While on a press tour for Ghost in the Shell, Pilou Asbaek teased the future of his Game of Thrones character, Euron. What is he up to next? And, is he long for this world?
MTV News talked to the actor and he was quite happy to tease his role in season seven. When asked about “just how much shit Euron was going to start”, Asbaek had a gleefully mad answer befitting his character: “Enough to get satisfied — good satisfied.” If the new King of the Iron Islands is satisfied, it’s safe to bet his enemies are in deep trouble!
Miami.com also got to interview the Danish actor, while he was in Miami to promote the adaptation of the popular manga, in which he plays Batou, a cyborg super-soldier. Of course, we know Asbaek for playing a very different kind of warrior, and the local publication stumbled into the topic while asking the actor about his plans for the future:
“I may be going to do some more ‘Game of Thrones.’ Maybe I won’t. I’ll take a break. I want to see my wife and daughter. I’ve missed them a lot.”
How much can we read into his answer? Has Euron’s lifespan been cut short now that his niece and nephew are shacked up with Daenerys, as he had planned to do himself? With his original plans foiled, what’s Euron’s next move? Whatever it happens to be, will it pay off? Will the character survive the coming season, giving Euron a role in the end-game, or is season seven the last we will see of the just crowned Driftwood King?
