Pilou Asbæk’s Euron Greyjoy Returns To Game Of Thrones With New Punk Rock Band Look
By Shawn Rice
Euron Greyjoy showed his agenda for the new season of Game Of Thrones. Played by Pilou Asbæk, Euron returned in the season 7 premiere with his armada to try and woo Westeros queen Cersei Lannister into an alliance. The appearance marked some rethinking of Theon’s power-mad uncle as he becomes a major player in the war to come.
Cersei rejected Euron’s offer of marriage. Rather than accept her decision, Euron made a vow to win Cersei over with a gift. “The surest way to a woman’s heart is a gift. A priceless gift. I won’t return to King’s Landing until I have that for you,” he said.

Asbæk spoke to EW about his character’s return and the upcoming season.
On playing Euron for this season:
“He’s kind of a joker type. He doesn’t take anyone too seriously. He doesn’t take himself too seriously. You have a character in the books but you also have to make it personal. So where he’s much more like a demon in the books, he’s much more f—ing enjoying himself here. I want to show a guy who just loves it. Those psychopathic sociopaths I’ve met in my life are smiley and well-mannered and they’re the biggest pricks in the world. It’s fun to do a character who’s a fun ride.”
On how has the character changed this season:
“Every scene he’s a new guy. The guy you met on the bridge is not the guy at the Kingsmoot, and is not the guy you see with Cersei and is not the guy you see on the ship. He’s different he’s different with different people. This season he’s more charming. He’s much more f—ing enjoying himself. He’s such a f—ing idiot douchebag, an impolite selfish child.”
What does Euron really think of Cersei?
The thing with Cersei is maybe she’s more man than a woman. She’s smart and intellectual and bloody sexy. But for Euron, the question is: “How can I become king of the Iron Throne?” Who gives him the best odds? Is it the dragon mother? No. Is it with Cersei? I think it is. Dany is still trying to be a good, decent, honest person. Cersei sold her soul many ago. Maybe that’s why Euron likes her. I think he considers her to be a worthy wife. Euron’s not a Lannister, he’s an Ironborn, she’s something better. There’s just one guy in the way…”
Of course, social media had their own opinions about the return of Euron and his new look.
