Irish actor Liam Cunningham, best known for his role as Davos Seaworth in Game of Thrones, is outraged by the attempt to turn his hero into a pervert.
The artist opposed his character's romance with counselor Daenerys Targaryen Missandei, played by Natalie Emmanuel. When the actors first met on set, Cunningham was 56 and Emmanuelle was 28.
“I don’t fucking do that. This is the only thing I have argued about. This woman is a goddess, but given the story of Davos with Lianne Mormont and Shiren Baratheon, you cannot let him get carried away by a young woman,”said the artist. He explained that the hero was a mentor to young female characters.
“You are negating all my audience sympathy work to make my character a pervert,” Cunningham told the showrunners.
Earlier in October, Nikolai Coster-Waldau, who played Jaime Lannister in Game of Thrones, described the performance of his co-star Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, as humiliating. In the first season, her heroine is married off to Khal Drogo played by Jason Momoa, who rapes the heroine on their wedding night.
Recently, the actor visited The Late Late Show, where he slightly opened the veil of secrecy that enveloped the finale of the popular series. “It usually took six months to shoot a standard 10 episodes. But the last six we filmed for a whole year. Imagine what an incredible scale and budget there,”says Cunningham. “I can repeat what the head of HBO Richard Plepler said - he saw all six episodes twice and says that it’s more like watching full movies. There is a completely different style, all the epic moments that we saw earlier will seem like a trifle,”added the actor.
