Euron Greyjoy may not be 100 percent evil, reveals actor Pilou Asbæk

The Danish-born actor is now terrifying audiences with his tongue-tearing killer Euron, who he himself insisted will be a far more terrifying beast than the likes of Ramsay Bolton and King Joffrey. I was entering the world of Game of Thrones, a show I've been a massive fan of for years.

There are few things more frightening in the Game of Thrones universe right now than Euron Greyjoy, but actor Pilou Asbæk's unbridled enthusiasm for playing the monstrous character might be one of them. And one of our heroes' latest opponents has come in the form of the brutal pirate Euron Greyjoy. I've done this two years and I haven't even thought about the motivation for the character. "We maybe fooled ourselves into thinking that Theon was out of the woods on his whole Reek experience, and as we were writing that scene, we realized that this is something that you don't just get over what happened to him, that's something that's going to be a part of him for the rest of his life". Asbæk spoke to TIME about how he helped reimagine the character, what Euron's intentions are with Cersei and why he thinks that controversial scene with the Sand Snakes was appropriate for the story. But can we recreate him?

"The sort of full-length battle was really, really something I wanted to be a part of, so yeah, [I was] thrilled". And now he's captured his niece and will hunt down his nephew (if he even thinks Theon is worth the time). And the Euron in the throne room is going to be very different from the Euron you'll see later in the season.

There's plenty to process in these finale moments - Euron's baddie brutality, the death of the Sand Snakes, Theon's abandonment - so you could be forgiven for missing a subtle nod to the name of Euron's infamous ship.

So, now you know. In the books, there are seven Sand Snakes and there was a lot of discussions about how many were going to be introduced [in the show].

What are Euron's true motivations when it comes to Cersei? I think he wants them to become what's in their blood: a king or queen - a Greyjoy. So when he says - and I remember all of it because I'm Danish, and it takes me a hell of lot longer for me to memorize English - "When I was a little boy, I wanted to grow up and marry the most attractive woman in the world", I think he means it.
