Unpredictability behind 'Game of Thrones' success: Liam Cunningham

Los Angeles: Irish actor Liam Cunningham, who essays Davos Seaworth in "Game of Thrones", says the show`s unpredicability is one of the biggest reasons why the HBO fantasy series has formed such a cult following.

Davos recently came to the limelight in the sixth season of the show for playing a significant catalyst that helps in the resurrection of popular character Jon Snow. 

When he was asked about how the unpredictability helps strengthen the show, Cunningham said in a statement: "It`s done for the purposes of drama, for the purposes of whatever you think this is, it`s not". 

"Remember the quote from a few seasons back -- I think it was from Tyrion. `If you think this is going to have a happy ending, you haven`t been paying attention`. And I think in a weird way it`s almost the credo of the show. There is unpredictability to it," he continued, while adding that in his opinion, "that`s one of the reasons audiences like it". 

On being asked on how the actors react to the volatile content, he said: "It`s a great thing for an actor to be presented with something they didn`t see coming, to be presented with one thing that`s been in your head that you`re sure of and that you hang your hat on as an actor, as in belief". 

"My belief in Stannis; Melisandre`s in the Lord of Light and all that, and it`s pulled away from under you. It`s a great thing for an audience to look at too because everything you`ve known is wrong," he added. 

The current sixth season of the series is aired on Star World Premiere HD in India.
