“There Are Quite A Few People Dying This Season”, Liam Cunningham
Liam Cunningham is our favourite! He will tease you with the most potent spoilers and just when you are about to gulp it all in; he will act extremely secretive. Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos, in the popular TV series Game of Thrones, spoke about the show and its season 6 at large in an exclusive interview.
We were left panting and crying at the end of season 5 when Jon Snow was stabbed to death (supposedly). After several discussions on his fate, Ser Davos over as our saving grace and a ray of hope when we saw him guarding Snow’s dead body in season 6 trailer.
Here are some of the important comments from the Liam Cunningham interview that are making waves on the internet today:
“He gets sucked into stuff that we’ve never seen him do before, against his better judgment. We will see him doing things that we haven’t seen him doing before.” (Liam Cunningham on Ser Davos in season 6)
When asked if Davos and Melisandre will now join hands considering they have both lost their king, this is what he had to say:
“I’m throwing you a hypothetical situation here. There’s one or two things that’s going to happen. First of all, they are very, very strange bedfellows, as they say, but they are in a very weird situation. For two people who have an abhorrent dislike of each other, they’re both in the same boat. We both lost Stannis. We both lost our reason for being in the show. Also, both of us have found ourselves leaning towards Jon Snow. She has seen something in the flames about this dude. I have found, while talking with Stannis to Jon, that this guy is a fellow traveler. He’s the real deal. He’s a good guy. He’s definitely got leadership qualities, and he has a heroic and charismatic quality to him. Davos will obviously be drawn to that kind of character. Davos isn’t a leader.
So [Davos and Melisandre are] both in Castle Black, in a terrible spot in the same s—t, and they hate each other. [Laughs] It’s brilliant drama. Brilliant! What a set-up. It’s a series by itself!
I do not know what’s happened to Shireen or Stannis. As an audience [member], you’re going to look at [Davos] and assume that he’s going to assume she was killed in the battle or whatever. So to return to your question, if I found out at the end of [Season] 5 or in the break that she’s responsible for it, there’s no f–king way I’m going to team up. So you have to figure out for yourself where that’s going to go as the season progresses.”
He also joked about how girls and guys would have given him any amount of money to be in his place. After all Kit Harington was lying on a table and Davos gets to be around his body and protect him! He shared much about the quality and the theories that have been used in season 6 and why that makes this season greater than any other in particular.
And then he threw the big bomb
“When I was reading these scripts, there’s a certain kind of bizarre new philosophy to what they’re doing. It’s different this year. There’s some very different stuff. There’s quite a few new people. There’s quite a few people going this year — as there is every year, to be fair. I’m not speaking out of shop when I say that. But I was astonished at the numbers. [Laughs] …It’s one of the things that makes the show so interesting: the fact that nobody’s safe. Anybody can go at any time.”
