GAME of Thrones actor Pilou Asbaek has called on George RR Martin to rewrite the fate of his character.
The 37 year old, who played Euron Greyjoy in the Westeros fantasy drama, begged the author for a happily ever after with femme fatale Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), who was pregnant with his child at the time of her death.
Viewers will remember that Euron met a bitter end in a duel with Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) on the coast of King’s Landing, a fight that saw Jamie mortally wounded too.
The finale certainly proved to be controversial, with many fans calling it ‘rushed’ and ‘oversimplified’.
Asbaek jumped on the bandwagon as he released a video to mark the acceptance of an Esquire Spain trophy at the Men of The Year Awards.
Penned as an open letter to Lena and Nikolaj, the Danish actor didn’t hold back when it came to airing his grievances.
“I’m in Madrid to receive another award for that delicious romantic comedy we starred in, lovely memories. I’ve texted George RR Martin suggesting him to change that Golden Company s**t for those golden rings,” he began.
A marriage between Euron and Cersei certainly would’ve been a match made in hell, given their respective barbarism and cunning.
“The books should end with our wedding, saying yes over two marvellous elephants, ideally. George seems not to be online. Would you mind phoning him?” he went on.
“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.”
Next he turned his attention to Nikolaj, playing up to Euron’s chip on his shoulder.
“You need to clarify in public [that] I was the one who killed you, not the f***ing brick. Please, seriously, come on. Confirm it on Twitter, or in your next interview, I don’t give a s**t,” he fumed.
“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 f***ing brick,” he concluded.
Pilou isn’t the only cast member to appeal to George RR Martin when it comes to the Song of Ice & Fire books.
Last week Isaac Hempstead Wright admitted he’d be ‘gutted’ is his character Bran Stark didn’t end up on the throne, in the line with the show.
He even used the opportunity to take a swipe at Jon Snow’s (Kit Harington) leadership.
