Liam Cunningham (born 2 June 1961) is an Irish actor with a long career on TV, stage and film. He has appeared in films such as Clash of the Titans, Hunger, First Knight and Jude, and TV series including Outcasts, Camelot and Northanger Abbey. He auditioned for several roles for the first season of Game of Thrones but did not get any due to scheduling clashes. The producers invited him to audition for Season 2 instead.
In Game of Thrones Cunningham is playing the role of Davos Seaworth. He was announced in the role on 19 July 2011. He is a starring cast member for the second, third and fourth season.
The fingers that Davos loses as a punishment for his smuggling crimes have been moved from his left to his right hand for the TV show, reflecting the fact that Cunningham is left-handed.
