Our Liam heads Down Under with Thrones ‘exhibit’

HE'S part of one of the most successful TV series across the globe and actor Liam Cunningham is having a blast promoting Game of Thrones this summer.

The Dubliner has jetted off to Australia to introduce the HBO phenomenon's travelling exhibitions to fans Down Under.

Liam, who plays Davos Seaworth on-screen, has touched down in Sydney this week and even though season four of the TV hit has just aired - he's already been confirmed to followers that he'll be in the fifth instalment.


The Wind The Shakes The Barley star even revealed that all the leading cast members will get 10 episodes in the next series, set to be broadcast next year.

"Everybody in the cast will get the 10 episodes, or the main cast anyway, which most of us are," Liam said.

"It's wonderful, because one of my favourite ways of working, for not the obvious reason, is ensemble.

"It's all well and good if you've got the ego to want to be your Tom Cruise or whatever and lead a pack of actors, but with this, what's wonderful about it, is that one of the reasons why it's so good is because there are so many beautifully drawn characters."

After its unveiling in Belfast last month, the Game of Thrones Exhibition is taking over the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney for the next few days.

So far, dozens of costumes and props from the show have been on display in cities including New York, Toronto and Rio de Janeiro.

In addition to his Game of Thrones commitments, 52-year-old Liam has been busy filming his next project, Lady Grey, alongside British actress Emily Mortimer.
