'Game Of Thrones' Actor Says 'There Is No God' If Kit Harington Isn't Nominated
Huffington Post - 8 months
That's just how he R'hllors. Before the biggest "Game of Thrones" episode, "Battle of the Bastards," even aired, Ser Davos (Liam Cunningham) was singing the praises of his Lord Commander, Jon Snow (Kit Harington). Cunningham told The Hollywood Reporter that Harington should be nominated for some awards for his work in the episode. Now, he's doubling down. "I repeat my thoughts," Cunningham told The Huffington Post. "I think -- Kit -- you can see it, man. You can see the amount of work that was put in by Kit. I remember Neil Marshall [director of 'The Watchers on the Wall'] telling me one of the things he loved about Kit was how he moves. He moves like a dancer, and his fighting is just fantastic to watch. He’s incredibly accomplished with a sword; he’s a decent man." "It kills me to say this. I hate complimenting other actors, but he’s an absolute joy. A joy to work with," he added. "He’s very subtle in his acting, I really like it. And the physical acting that he does is ab ...

New 'Game Of Thrones' Footage Solves A Big Jon Snow Mystery
Huffington Post - 11 months
We all know nothing about "Game of Thrones" Season 6. We can speculate and analyze until winter finally comes, but now that the show is passing George R.R. Martin's books, the only way to confirm anything is to see the actual footage. Thankfully for fans, that just happened. Actor Liam Cunningham, aka Davos, brought an extended clip to "Conan" Thursday night, and now we know for sure what he's up to in that scene from the trailer. As speculated, it appears Davos is protecting Jon Snow's body from the Night's Watch, who likely want to destroy it in some way. Some other Night's Watch brothers appear to be helping him, and, oh yeah, Ghost is definitely alive! (Thank the old gods and the new!) Cunningham also talked about the big "Game of Thrones" secret that George R.R. Martin told him when they first met. Though he didn't spill the beans to Conan O'Brien, the actor previously told The Huffington Post that we may have already seen part of the secret happen in ...

EXCLUSIVE: The 'Game Of Thrones' Scene That Wasn't Scripted
Huffington Post - about 4 years
It's more or less a rule of thumb in Westeros: The more closely related one character is to another, the more likely they are to dislike each other. Of course, almost everyone fights with their nearest and dearest on "Game of Thrones," and in a kingdom where blood is spilled freely, the good news is that it's not common for siblings to kill each other. But that doesn't mean they have to like each other. For the "Game of Thrones" Season 2 DVD set, actors Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Michelle Fairley and Liam Cunningham, as well as executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, gathered to talk about the show in depth. In this exclusive clip from their roundtable discussion (above), Headey talked about the rivalry between her character, Cersei Lannister, and her brother, Tyrion (Emmy winner Peter Dinklage) and reveals a violent moment that wasn't in the script. The roundtable is just one of the features on the DVD set, which comes out Feb. 19. In addi ...

Game of Thrones Season Two - Episode 5 Review
Flickering Myth - almost 5 years
Oliver Davis reviews the fifth episode of Game of Thrones Season Two... The Ghost of Harrenhal. Directed by David Petrarca. Written by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. This week was a mixed bag. We were spoilt with Joffrey’s douchebagery last week, but here he’s not present at all. Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) and Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham), arguably the two most engaging characters besides Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), only graced a single scene. And whereas the previous episode had ended with Davos aghast at a strange, shadowy presence that emerged from between Melisandre’s (Carice van Houten) legs, this week’s ended comparatively weakly, with Jaqen H'ghar (Tom Wlaschiha) eating an apple. Catelyn …turns out that Melisandre’s hellish offspring was a shadow assassin sent to murder Renly (Gethin Anthony). Catelyn (Michelle Fairley) and Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) were the only ones present at the time, so, naturally, everyone assumes they killed one of th ...

The following list gives some brief background information about each new character, who they are and how they fit into the story. Hopefully this will help to eliminate any confusion you might have when you yell at your TV: “Wait!

Since Robert’s Rebellion, he has held the island fortress of Dragonstone, which lies northeast of King’s Landing. Stannis is a hard, pragmatic man, with little patience for ‘friends’.

Game of Thrones Season Two - Episode 4 Review
Flickering Myth - almost 5 years
Oliver Davis reviews the fourth episode of Game of Thrones Season Two... Garden of Bones. Directed by David Petrarca. Written by Vanessa Taylor. There was no time for The Wall this week, not even in the opening credits. The Westeros map has become rather crammed as of late, so much so that we skipped past Winterfell's weird, holy tree. In its place were a hasty Harrenhal, where Arya (Maisie Williams) and her bunch of rascals have been hauled after being captured by Lannister men at the end of episode two, and Qarth, where Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) seeks refuge near Garden of Bones' close. Quite apt, as the plains surrounding Qarth share the episode's name, getting a few more bones each time the great city welcomes a new visitor through its gates. Robb ...book adaptations are awkward processes, though far more suited to television series than films. The marvelous thing about Game of Thrones is that it actually augments the literature. Robb (Richard Madden), for instance, is only e ...

Game of Thrones Episode 2.04 Review
Movies Web - almost 5 years
I often find myself transfixed on the minutiae of such a complex world such as Westeros in Game of Thrones. For instance, they have established that sending out ravens with messages is basically the only way one can communicate between other villages in Westeros, so one would assume that rumors are spread via ravens as well. I found myself wondering just exactly how an interesting piece of information made its way inside the Lannister camp when Episode 2.04: Garden of Bones opens, since I assumed that it was a secret. The episode starts out innocuous enough, with two men standing watch outside the Lannister camp. I was kind of surprised when one man made a crack about Loras Tyrell (Finn Jones) "stabbing Renly Baratheon (Gethin Anthony) for years, and he ain't dead yet." Since Renly was surprised his wife knew this secret, one must wonder how he would react if that news became widespread. At any rate, when two dudes are outside on watch in the middle of the night, it's not ...
