Only yesterday I reported on the casting of Stannis Baratheon and Melisandre and today more casting news is released. For the second season of HBO‘s Game of Thrones, Liam Cunningham as been cast the Onion Knight, Davos Seaworth.
A little refresher on Davos, he’s a former smuggler in the service of Stannis Baratheon, who, if you’ll remember from our lesson yesterday, is one of the many kings vying for the Iron Throne. Davos is suspicious of Melisandre, a red priestes of R’hollar and also an advisor to Stannis. And, that’s about where I’ll leave off, no need to excessively spoil you. If you want that, read the books. (Which you should do regardless, they’re phenomenal.)
Cunningham was most recently seen on the now-canceled Starz program, Camelot and in the recent reboot of Clash of the Titans. He surely has the look of a world-weary smuggler turned knight. What do you think? Have you been pleased with the recent string of season two casting choices?
