Reports today conclude that Pilou Asbæk (star of Borgen and 1864) has been spotted around Ballintoy Harbour, Ireland, with the cast filming for Season 6.
Keen eyed reporters have seen Asbæk wearing an eye-patch which fits the description of Theon’s uncle Euron Greyjoy.
His casting means that confirmed new cast member Ian McShane will not be playing Euron, as previously suggested – most likely he is instead playing Sam Tarly’s warrior father, Randall.
Pilou now joins his co-star Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, who starred as a wildling in the season 5’s White Walker battle. What next, Sidse Babett Knudsen as a Stark relation?
