It's Not Just You, Game of Thrones Fans — Pilou Asbæk Says Euron Was "Such a F*cking Idiot"May 14, 2019
If there is one Game of Thrones character who has garnered pretty universal disdain over the past few seasons (aside from the characters of Dorne, may we never speak of them again), 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 so much fun and I love the character. It’s fun being the guy the world hates the most just for a couple of days, as long as it’s only temporary.”
