Report: Game of Thrones Snags Borgias Vet for Pivotal Season 6 Role

Winter may be coming to Game of Thrones — but so too is Silence.

According to the Thrones community site Watchers on the Wall, Danish actor Pilou Asbæk (The Borgias) has been cast as Euron Greyjoy — uncle of Theon, er, Reek, and captain of the Silence, a ship manned entirely by crew members whose tongues he yanked out.

The one-eyed Euron is infamous for raping and plundering wherever he drops anchor — meaning it’s likely that #TeamGreyjoy t-shirts will continue to lag behind even #HouseLannister merchandise among fans of the sprawling HBO drama.

Vulture’s sources spotted Asbæk shooting what it referred to as “A Feast for Crows‘ pivotal Kingsmoot scene in Northern Ireland this week, alongside [actress] Gemma Whelan.”

Excited about Euron’s introduction? Are you familiar with any of Asbæk’s past roles? Sound off below!
