We are preparing to travel to the South of France for our return visit to the FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX DE MONACO 2016

and are very much looking forward to soon seeing our friend, Game of Thrones-star Liam Cunningham there.

cannes-film-festival-with-our-friend-liam-cunningham-neuschwansteiner-06He is of course already at the wonderful Cote d’Azur, as it is traditionally the famous week of the 69th Cannes Film Festival.

Liam, famous for his character Davos Seaworth in the HBO fantasy-series Game of Thrones, has won two Irish Film & Television Awards, shared a BAFTA with Michael Fassbender and has been nominated for several other awards, including the British Independent Film Award.

The Irishman loves motor racing, and we have become friends with him, meeting up with him at several occasions:

He joins our continuous support of ZOOM charity, where over the past years he has been submitting fantastic photos he took at the race tracks.

He has at several occasions told us, that he loves our Neuschwansteiner beer, and joined us last year in Abu Dhabi for the after-party at the Shangri-La hotel, Qaryat Al Beri of the 2nd edition of Fashion Fever Grand Prix™to support Make-A-Wish Foundation® UAE.

The party, where we were the official beer, was a night of high fashion and serious glamour at the famous restaurant “Pearls and Caviar” of MICHELIN star chef Sergi Arola.

He shared some racing conversations with our brand Ambassador H.R.H. Prince Leopold of Bavaria and toasted with our CEO and founder Christian Seitz.

Last, but not least, he celebrated with us last year at Sonia Irvine’s famous Amber Lounge and Amber Lounge Fashion Show where he shared a Neuschwansteiner together with H.R.H. Prince Leopold of Bavaria and Christian Seitz.

About the new 6th season of Games of Thrones and the new challenges for his character Davis Seaworth, Liam recently said enthusiastically:

“As an actor you are just dying to get your teeth into it. It is not cheap and cheerful, it’s clever, it’s complicated, it is dark it’s intelligent, it’s everything an actor who likes acting, wants.”

Christian Seitz, CEO and founder of The World of Neuschwansteiner said:

“We wish Liam a successful and enjoyable time in Cannes and look forward to hopefully see him next week at the famous Amber Lounge during the FORMULA ONE GRAND PRIX DE MONACO 2016!”
