“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.”
Truer words have never been said in the entire series of Game of Thrones. It’s a story that began with a mysterious death, and led to a clash between two powerful houses. This very quickly devolved into all-out war between different factions, with practically every house under the sun out for the Iron Throne in King’s Landing.
There have been a lot of deaths in the wake of said power struggle, including kings, princes, princesses, nobles, peasants, soldiers, and everything in between. Characters who were once thought to be the leads have been killed off, and those who were originally thought to be side characters have now been thrust into the spotlight. One such character is Davos Seaworth, the former advisor to Stannis Baratheon who has cheated death multiple times.
When asked buy IGN how long expected to make it into the final season, ctor Liam Cunningham, who plays Davos, said:
“I’ve already got a seat fitting for the throne. Actually, to be fair — typical actors never being happy — my ambition was to get to the last season, and now that I’m in the last season, my ambition is to get to the last episode. God knows what’s going to happen, they may kill me in the first five minutes.”
With only six episodes remaining until the end of the series, this may very well be the most kill-happy season in recent memory. We’re sure every other actor is having similar sentiments. Davos’ character has a distinct advantage here, however, in that that he’s not vying for the throne himself. That’ll help when the slaying begins in the final battles.
