The virtuous one

Liam Cunningham is quite a funny bunny -- a stark opposite of the character he is best known for portraying: Game Of Thrones' dependably virtuous knight, Ser Davos Seaworth. While in Bangkok earlier this month, he unflinchingly munched the head off fried insects at the street stall and gleefully admitted to nicking tiny props from the set every year, be it the small wooden stag or coins from Braavos. He asks the props man first of course, and most of it ends up on his daughter's "wall of awesome" in her bedroom.

The veteran actor is no stranger to Thailand and his first visit, which took place 15 years ago, was when he was on a three-month shoot for the film Stranded (2002) in Krabi. This time, the Irishman was back in town earlier this month courtesy of HBO shacking up with AIS. Viewers in Thailand can now follow the latest Game Of Thrones on AIS Playbox, with the second-to-last season premiering on July 17.

Leaking no hints about what to look forward to in Season 7, besides the fact that the bold, grandness of the cinematography has exploded from the size of a 20-by-20 painting to the AIS backdrop he stood in front of, Cunningham hinted at what the teaser trailer could possibly be getting at.
