LONDON, May 27 (UPI) -- Game of Thrones star Iwan Rheon says Ramsay Bolton deserves to die.

The 31-year-old Welsh actor discussed the sadistic character on Thursday's episode of This Morning. Ramsay, who has a fondness for flaying victims, is guilty of rape and multiple murders on the show.

"It kind of gets to the point where you just think, 'Ugh, really?'" Rheon said of his character's penchant for cruelty. "But nothing sort of surprises you about him anymore. He's not a very nice young man."

"There are elements [that are fun to play]," he qualified. "He's a very interesting character, anyway. There's a lot to him [and] the reasons he's become this monster."

Ramsay stands as Lord of the Dreadfort, Lord of Winterfell and Warden of the North after killing his father, stepmother and half-brother. Rheon admitted he wouldn't mind seeing the character brought low in light of his many crimes.

"I'd quite like a dragon-related death," the actor suggested. "Some brutal dragon action. Fighting a dragon and losing. I think he's got [a grisly death] coming. He deserves it."

Rheon recently described Ramsay as "a complete scumbag" in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. The actor revealed the character will "change" through Season 6 as he starts to "take his responsibilities more seriously."

"I get to do loads of different things and show sides to Ramsay that you haven't seen before," he teased. "This season fills him out a bit."

Game of Thrones co-stars Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark, Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister and Kit Harington as Jon Snow. The series airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
