Game of Thrones has casted Liam Cunningham to play next season’s big new character, Davos. Davos is the new powerful character in Season 2. He is known as the “Onion Knight” because he successfully smuggled food in to Stannis Baratheon’s castle. This act of smuggling also lost him some of his fingers as a punishment.
Cunningham is a well-known Irish actor that has played characters in Starz’s Camelot as well as movies like Clash of the Titians, and the BBC’s series, Outcasts.
The second season of Game of Thrones also welcomes actors Stephen Dillane and Carice van Houten to the cast.
Season 2 of Game of Thrones airs on HBO next spring.Tags: BBC, Camelot, Carice van Houten, Clash of the Titians, Davos, Game of Thrones, HBO, Liam Cunningham, Outcasts, Starz, Stephen Dillane
