Real fans of the “Game of Thrones” TV series are familiar to all kinds of shocks and surprises. The Season 5 finale was a real doozy, but now it’s time to move on as there is another season in front of us.

Although we’ll have to wait until somewhere in 2016 for Season 6, that doesn’t mean we’re not allowed to hope, talk, and speculate.

Speaking of which, the latest rumor has it that we should expect to see a new character as soon as the next season starts.

Various reports suggest that this new addition will come in the form of Euron Greyjoy, a famous pirate played by Pilou Asbæk.

The Danish actor has previously appeared in the blockbuster “Lucy,” as well as opposite Jeremy Irons in the cast of “The Borgias.”

Those who read the George R. R. Martin books will recognize Euron, as he is pretty much the only major pirate in the story. A while back, the show’s cast was looking for a pirate in his 40s to late 50s who was ready to “terrorize the seas all around the world.”

Even though Asbæk might look a bit young for the role, we expect him to fit right in after some make up magic.
