Even the guy who plays Ramsay Bolton wants him to die horribly

Iwan Rheon, who plays Ramsay Bolton on "Game of Thrones," tells Wales Online his character has absolutely no redeeming qualities and deserves a horrible, gruesome death.

Warning: this post contains spoilers from the latest episode of "Game of Thrones."

Anyone who has seen "Game of Thrones" knows that Ramsay Bolton, bastard son of Lord Roose Bolton, is, to put it mildly, not a good guy. When he's not out hunting people who've wronged him in some way, he's busy torturing or raping anyone he can get his hands on in Westeros.

In fact, Ramsay is so awful that even Iwan Rheon, the actor who plays him on the hit HBO series, is disgusted by him. In an interview with Wales Online, Rheon admitted he wants to see Ramsay die a nasty death. That's because Ramsay really doesn't have any redeeming qualities. He's just a horrible person through and through.

Rheon went on to speculate about when and how his character would meet his fate. "[Ramsay's death] could happen at any time," Rheon told Wales Online in an interview published Tuesday. "That's the nature of the show -- no one's really safe." Rheon said he just bought a flat in London, so he hopes his character sticks around for at least a little while longer. But he knows Ramsay's comeuppance is drawing near.

"That day is definitely coming, no mistake about it -- and I hope that when it does it's epically nasty, and preferably dragon-related," Rheon said. He will probably have no such luck, however, as Stannis Baratheon is marching toward Winterfell, and if the Night's Watch can't do anything about the White Walkers and the Army of the Dead, they're probably coming too. Meanwhile, Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons are halfway around the Known World in Meereen.

However his character dies, Rheon hopes Ramsay's death is clean so he doesn't have to come back as a White Walker. He might want to reconsider that, however, as after watching the most recent episode of "Game of Thrones," it's starting to look like the Army of the Dead stands the greatest chance of taking the Iron Throne.
