Liam Cunningham Reveals He's Alive In Game Of Thrones In An Interview! Has Children With Neatly Hidden Wife
Apart from the exceptional storytelling attributes of Game of Thrones, it is highly known for killing most of its characters when viewers expect the least.
Every table reading that happens on the set comes as a surprise to one of the characters, whose death would have already been scripted. Fans don't usually get to know before the show; which character makes it alive through to another episode.
Well, if you are the greatest fan of the show, you see the character 'Davos Seaworth' played by Liam Cunningham, who is distinctly different from all the other characters. Liam seems to have given away some information to his fans about his life on the show.
Let's find out something about his personal life, and when did he reveal information related to the show.
Liam Cunningham; Yet To Die, On-screen!
In the middle of all the characters, who are doing everything it takes to sit on the iron throne, Ser Davos Seaworth is someone, who stands out as his character is very loyal, unlike others. Liam calls his character 'an island of sanity in the sea of madness.' People in the show are ready to kill, marry or hook-up with anyone just to be closer to ruling the kingdom.
Game Of Thrones has a reputation for being highly secretive – managing to keep both its big and small plot twists out of the public eye for years. But, there was a time when Liam's close ones thought he was dead. Enlightening the matter; Liam stated,
“When the season ends, the first thing I do is shave the beard off, I was around, a friend of mine’s house and her sister came in, and when she opened the door she went, ‘Oh my God, you’re dead! You’re dead, you’re dead!’ And I went, ‘What do you mean I’m dead? I’m not dead!’ She went, ‘You have no beard! You took the beard off, you must be dead! Oh God! I’m telling all my friends you’re dead.’ I went, ‘I just shaved the beard off, I just finished.’ She wouldn’t believe me. There was no amount of convincing this girl that I was possibly still alive. Because I didn’t have the beard, that was her clue that I was dead.”
However, in a phone interview with Star2 Magazine, Liam disclosed he was alive in the first episode of the new season. He denied divulging further on the matter, yet he stated,
“I would love him to last. I hope he lasts. I like him, the audience likes him. But knowing (creators) David (Benioff) and Dan (D.B. Weiss), and (author) George R.R. Martin, that is a good enough reason to kill him. So, who knows?”
Whatever may be in the future, it is clear that Lian's character is alive in the early episodes of season 8.
Liam's Personal Life: Wife & Children
The Irish actor, who used to be an electrician during the mid-'80s, made his debut from a Film named- Into the West. It was then; he took off in his acting career followed by auditioning for Game of Thrones, where he got the role for Davos Seaworth, which rewarded him with the utmost fame.
