Game of Thrones Extra once called actor Liam Cunningham Grumpy




When you’ve worked at a place for a really long time, you share some of the fondest memories with your colleagues. Game of Thrones’ cast and crew were one big family. Andrew McClay, one of the notable extras, shared one of his fond memories of actor Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth).

McClay told the Irish Mirror, “I used to have some craic with Liam Cunningham! I remember saying to him, ‘You’re like my Da, Liam. You look grumpy but you love a joke!’ He instantly replied by saying, ‘what the fuck do you mean I look grumpy? “ and I said ‘well you’re grumpy now, aren’t’ you?’ and he just burst out laughing.”


“For the end of Game of Thrones Season 8, the extras department put on a talent show and all the extras had to be in it. I was trying to get Liam to do it. He was like ‘what do you want me to do?’ I was taking the piss and trying to get him to do a dramatic monologue. Liam’s great company to be around.”

He recalled, “There was another scene at the Winterfell long hall with Kit, Liam, Kristofer Hivju and a few others. The main actors would be fully trusted to take personal cameras on the set to take a few photos and Liam brought in a lovely camera to document the filming of Season 8 and his time of the show.”

“It was the first time I ever saw him with it and I just shout, ‘how much do you think Watchers On the Wall will give you for them, Liam?’ Are you trying to sell them to The Mirror or something?!?!’ and the whole room just erupted. He was just shaking his head laughing.”

Superheroes are the stuff of fantasies, who we often wish to come to life. Sitting at the backseat of our class, bored, we often drift into our dream world, where we are our own superhero. The scribbles and doodles on the back pages are proof of one’s creativity, dreaming of writing a story. A story where one is a hero. Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke just fulfilled another one of her dreams, to write a comic book story.

Emilia Clarke has created a new feminist comic book. Titled M.O.M.: Mother of Madness, the three-issue comic series was written by Clarke and Marguerite Bennett. The story is centred around a singer and mother named Maya as she embarks on a journey that will lead her to the discovery of some unique superpowers. Maya will put her new powers to good use, fighting off a secret group of human traffickers.


Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Clarke described her new superhero’s vague superpowers. She explained that some of Maya’s powers are activated by her menstrual cycle.

She can do all of these wicked things, but they all come from the fact that she is a woman who has a menstrual cycle. I thought it would be cool to have all the things that women don’t like about themselves. Flip that, and make those the things that make her superhuman,” Clarke explained.

“It’s a very personal experience that everyone has with comics. These are characters that people are passionate about, and care about deeply, and relate to. I wanted to throw a new character into the mix. See if people related to her in a way that was impactful to them.”

Conversational skills, though underrated, are one of the rarest skills few talented folks possess. At schools, we’re taught how to hold actual conversations, but we often get the jitters doing so in reality. One of the most common tricks is the use of an ice breaker. Nonetheless, it is quite difficult to come up with a usable one. Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has one such trick up his sleeve. His secret, however, has been revealed by one of the show’s extra, Andrew McClay.

In an interview with The Irish Mirror, McClay described how Kit would try to talk to as many people on set. He described him as one of the nicest people he had ever met.


Andrew said, “I remember being at the Battle of the Bastards but on other scenes that I wasn’t on, a lad from the Night’s Watch told me that too. He goes, ‘Kit doesn’t have a lighter on him because he likes going up to people and talking directly to the boys to break the ice by asking them for a lighter.’”

I saw him do it on the battle lines at the Battle of the Bastards. He’s here in front of 500 lads, he doesn’t know any of us but we all know who he is and he’s walking around getting to know us. That’s just a sign of what a nice man he is.”

The cordial relationship between the cast and the crew of production often influence the success of the show. Recently, one such story came up about Kit Harington. In an interview with the Irish Mirror, Game of Thrones extra Andrew McClay talked about how nice he was to everyone on set.

McClay talked about the moment he gave Kit a ‘King in The North’ jacket, “Oh yeah, I had to give him a Season 8 jacket too because as you see in the documentary, I mentioned to him that we have a new one for Season 8. He came to me then after the cameras stopped rolling and we’re talking about the new jacket. So I had to send it over to London for him and he sent me back a lovely message thanking me, he’s absolutely lovely. “


“I loved being able to give that jacket to him because he’s just a lovely man and during the time working on the show, he just embodied Jon Snow for me. For me, Kit is the King in the North and for the Season 8 jacket, I had ‘The King Beyond the Wall’ written on the sleeve. He told me that he loved that touch. “

“I always used to look at Kit and say to myself, ‘he is Jon Snow.’ That’s why I got him the jacket because I love that character and these books. To me, I was so happy to give him that because it was my way of saying thank you for bringing my favourite character off the pages and onto the screen. He did it so well.”
