Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere is less than a month away and the fans are expecting an epic battle between the Targereans and Lannisters while the white walkers make their way towards the wall. Amidst the big Stark reunion and the dynamic politics of Westeros, one can't miss the fact that post-Ramsay Bolton's much-deserved death, the series now needs a new villain.

Well, according to actor Pilou Asbæk, his character Euron Greyjoy is there to save the spot and that he will be more gruesome and hateful than the terrifying Ramsay. In an interview with Empire, the actor said, "Ramsay's gonna look like a little kid, after this season."

"The psychos I’ve encountered have so many different sides to them," Asbæk said. "So each scene I’ve done with Euron, I pick a new thing I want to show. ‘This scene I want to be charming.’ ‘This scene I want to be a molester.’ ‘This scene I want to kill someone."

So is Euron the new mega-villain? We have to wait until July 16 to judge his acts on the 'cruelty meter', set by Joffrey Baratheon and raised to new heights by Ramsay Bolton.

Euron has only appeared in two episodes of the show — all in Season 6. First, he tossed his older brother, Balon Greyjoy (Patrick Malahide), from a bridge near Pyke, the seat of the Iron Islands. Then, he staked his claim as the true heir to the Iron Islands. He ultimately outmanoeuvres his niece Yara and nephew Theon to become the next lord of the islands, as they flee to meet Daenerys Targaryen, asking for her help to overthrow this invasion by their uncle Euron.

In India, GoT Season 7 will premiere on Hotstar Premium.
