Pilou Asbæk on Euron’s changeable personality, seeking a spectacular death, and his endgame in the ‘game of thrones’

It’s fair to say Euron made quite a splash in “Stormborn”. He wreaked havoc on Dany’s Dornish and Greyjoy allies, killing two characters, capturing three others, and humiliating another one.

Game of Thrones Soars Again, Grabbing Over 9 Million Viewers with “Stormborn”

Last week, Game of Thrones annihilated their ratings record with the season premiere “Dragonstone”, bringing in over ten million viewers. The show didn’t quite top that with this week’s second episode, but it wasn’t far off, with GoT still beating all their previous season’s record numbers. According to Zap2It, a staggering 9.27 million viewers tuned in […]
