IFTA to Host In Conversation With Liam Cunningham
28 Jun 2019 : News Desk
Liam Cunningham
The Game of Thrones star discusses his eminent screen-acting career with the Irish Film and Television Academy on July 2nd.  

Cunningham will give the audience an insight into his acting career and share his knowledge and approach to the craft across a spectrum of characters and performances over the years. Key elements of the discussion will include his work in HBO's 'Game of Thrones', ‘The Guard'; ‘The Wind that Shakes the Barley’ and Steve McQueen’s ‘Hunger’. 

An IFTA-award winning actor, Cunningham began acting in his mid 20s and has appeared in numerous films and television shows including ‘War of the Buttons’, ‘Falling for a Dancer’ and independent horror film ‘Dog Soldiers’ as Captain Ryan, to much international acclaim.

The veteran Irish actor has appeared in two of the highest grossing Irish independent films of all time in ‘The Guard’ (2011) and ‘The Wind that Shakes the Barley’ (2006), the latter of which earned him his first IFTA Award for Best Supporting Actor in Film. Two years later, Cunningham picked up his second IFTA in the same category for his performance in Oscar-winning director Steve McQueen’s ‘Hunger’, opposite Michael Fassbender. 

In 2012, he joined the cast of the second season of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ as former smuggler-turned-knight Davos Seaworth. The international Drama sensation was filmed at Linen Mill Studio in Belfast and on location throughout Northern Ireland since its beginning in 2011.

Having just finished its 8th and final season in May, ‘Game of Thrones’ has been hailed as one of the best television shows of all time, holding the Emmy-award record for a scripted television series with a total of 47 primetime Emmy-awards. For his own performance in Game of Thrones, Liam won the 2018 IFTA award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in Drama.

The event takes place in the Stephen’s Green Club at 7.30pm on Tuesday, July 2nd.
