Game of Thrones- Pilou Asbaek Reportedly Cast as Euron Greyjoy

EGP Website Article Image 92

The sixth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones may be a long way off, but casting announcements have been coming in recently and now we reportedly have another one.

Pilou Asbaek, best-known for his roles as Kasper Juul in Borgen, Mikkel Hartmann in A Hijacking and Richard in Lucy, has reportedly been cast as Euron Greyjoy in the popular TV show.

Pilou was reportedly seen filming with other cast members at Ballintoy Harbour in Northern Ireland which led to the report of him being cast as Euron Greyjoy.

For anyone unfamiliar with the character some details are included below, however be very wary of SPOILERS:

………………………………

 

……………………..

“It seems that the Greyjoy subplot that was left by the wayside last season is picking up again in Season 6. Euron appears in the fourth book in the series, A Feast for Crows, after Lord Balon Greyjoy dies. Balon is rumored to finally perish in Season 6, which leads to the scene Asbæk was supposedly caught filming.

 

The scene being filmed may have been the Kingsmoot that takes place after Balon’s death. Yara was there, as was a crowd of spectators who cheered for Euron. This all fits into the context of the Kingsmoot. There was also a character who appeared to be the Drowned Priest Aeron, but no word on the actor playing him. The only thing missing from the scene was Victarion Greyjoy.”

Game of Thrones Season 6 will begin airing in 2016.

Rumour- Gina Rodriguez, Tatiana Maslany and Olivia Cooke Short Listed for a Lead Role in Star Wars Episode VIII

EGP Website Article Image 90EGP Website Article Image 91

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens may just be months away at this point, but rumours are now already coming out surrounding Episode VIII. The latest rumour hints at three actresses that are being considered by Lucasfilm and Disney, any of whom could end up playing a new female lead in Star Wars Episode VIII.

The actresses in question are Gina Rodriguez (Jane Villanueva in Jane the Virgin and Beverly in The Bold and the Beautiful), Tatiana Maslany (Sarah Manning, Cosima Niehaus and Alison Hendrix in Orphan Black, Kit Bailey in Heartland and Mary Dexter in Diary of the Dead) and Olivia Cooke (Emma Decody in Bates Motel) .

Interesting to note is that Tatiana Maslany was previously on the shortlist for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first of the spin-off films which will be released next year. Maybe the fact that she’s on a Star Wars short-list again is an indication that Lucasfilm and Disney liked her before and increases her chances of being cast in a Star Wars film?

The three mentioned actresses (and possibly others) are reportedly going to have a chemistry read with John Boyega, Finn in The Force Awakens, sometime this month.

Thoughts on this rumour? Would you like to see Gina, Tatiana and/or Olivia in a Star Wars film?
