Laura Delaney chats to Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham about the highly-anticipated new series of the show at the Budweiser Dream Job launch.

Talking about the high octane drama the 53-year-old Dublin native said: "People talk about the sex and the violence and the only way you can have that – especially in a modern drama – is if you have incredibly strong female characters. The women on our show are dangerous, they are killers. 

"I think this is why so many people like it, it's not patronising and it's not condescending and that is one of the reasons I am involved with it. "
