Pilou Asbæk (Euron Greyjoy) suggests alternate ending to A Song of Ice and Fire


Pilou Asbæk was only on Game of Thrones for a few seasons, but as the scenery-chewing Ironborn maniac Euron Greyjoy, he definitely made the most of them. He’s still hamming it up months after the series ended, doing a spot for Esquire while in Spain to receive one of the 2019 Esquire Men Awards.

Asbæk made a video where he writes letters to two of his Game of Thrones costars: Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister). We can’t embed the video here, but we can transcribe his heartfelt words:

"Dear Lena,I’m in Madrid to receive another award for that delicious romantic comedy we starred in. Lovely memories. I’ve texted George R.R. Martin suggesting him to change that Golden Company shit for those golden rings. The books should end with our wedding, saying yes over two marvelous elephants, ideally. George seems not to be online. Would you mind phoning him? And what about tweeting that I was and will always be the love of your life?I miss you. Yours, Pilou. Please do it for your salty boy, blondie."

I’m sure she’ll get right on that.


He’s gets a bit more blue with Coster-Waldau:

"Dear Nikolaj,You need to clarify in public [that] I was the one who killed you, not the fucking brick. Please, seriously, come on. Confirm it on Twitter, or in your next interview, I don’t give a shit. Oh, by the way, I received the golden hand replica, and you were right: what a feeling! It feels so good, why were you complaining so much on set? It’s great to have a golden hand! Besides that, I’m pretty cool man. Right now I’m in Spain, the most beautiful place in the world.All the best, yours, Pilou.P.S. Please remember to tell people that I killed you, not the fucking brick."

Eh, just wait for the novelty of the golden hand to wear off. Pretty soon it’s all about having to clean it, forgetting where you put it when you get up in the morning, etc. Classic golden hand stuff.
