Actor Liam Cunningham is set to remain on the hit HBO series, ‘Game of Thrones’, according to sources.

The show, which is partly filmed in Belfast also stars Irish actors Aidan Gillen as brothel-keeper Lord Baelish and Jack Gleeson as Prince Joffrey Baratheon.

Liam, 51, is playing Davos Seaworth, a former smuggler. The actor had previously auditioned for roles in the first series but was unable to take up any because of clashing work schedules.

According to ‘The Irish Daily Mirror’, the actor is thrilled with the news. A source said: “Liam’s delighted, he’s a great actor. It’s a great show so he’s happy to be part of it.”
