Ser Davos Seaworth may be one of the most underrated characters in 'Game of Thrones.' The self-proclaimed Onion Knight, played by Liam Cunningham, had a small but important role in the show's fifth season. He is usually the one trying to save Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) from going too far with his obsession for power.
Cunningham recently spoke to io9 about what happened in Season Five, and what is in store for Ser Davos in the sixth season.
The actor confirmed that Ser Davos had a gut feeling that something would happen to Shireen Baratheon if he left her.
"He probably used his female intuition," Cunningham said. "That's why he tried to take Selyse and Shireen with him. But what could he do? He tried three or four times to say, 'I want take them with me, or let me just take the princess.' So he knows that something is up-he's obviously got a sense of that."
He also confirms that he would never leave Shireen behind if he knew what would happen to her.
"He wouldn't have gone," Cunningham said. "He had a sense that something wasn't right. But if he'd known that something like that was going to happen, no way.
"He would have whisked her away. He would have done what he did with Gendry, without a doubt."
He added, "Well, maybe not put her in a boat."
In 'Game of Thrones,' Gendry (Joe Dempsie) was the unacknowledged bastard of Robert Baratheon who befriended Arya Stark. He was used by Melisandre to obtain king's blood to perform a ritual. Ser Davos helped the boy escape any further harm by putting him on a boat.
So what is in store for Ser Davos in Season Six? Could he possibly take over Castle Black now that Jon Snow is dead?
"He doesn't have the stupidity to want to be a leader," Cunningham said. "He's much too level-headed. He's not ambitious."
Then he added, "Then again, some people get greatness thrust upon him. Maybe that'll happen."
