Sunday’s penultimate episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones brought the demise of several major characters, including the most arrogant man in Westeros: Euron Greyjoy, played by Danish actor Pilou Asbæk.
This final set of Game of Thrones episodes has been controversial among fans, and has record-low critical reviews. Asbæk says now that his character has been killed off, he’s throwing his support behind showrunners David Benioff and Dan “D.B.” Weiss for the final episode.
“I’m rooting for Dan and David,” Asbæk said in an interview with INSIDER. “For them to be happy with what they have created […] because right now people are very angry.”
Asbæk, who hasn’t watched a single episode of the show since he was cast as Euron, also revealed more about the strenuous final fight scene he filmed and why he was first “bummed” to realise Euron was so different from the book character.
