Game of Thrones & Tyrion Lannister. Ten things you didn’t know about Peter Dinklage

Game of Thrones & Tyrion Lannister. Because Game of Thrones season 4 is coming and it’s time to remember the best things of our favorite characters.


Tyrion Lannister

Although Peter Dinklage is famous for playing as Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones, he prefers to play bad characters because… “It’s always fun to play them. You get away with a lot more. You don’t have a heroic code you have to live by.”

He has starred as Tyrion Lannister in the HBO series Game of Thrones since 2011 and he earned the Emmy and the Golden Globe Award. But he is a little tired of playing the same role: “playing the same character for many years, for me, I think that would get a little tedious.”

You could think he was a fun and outgoing person, the same as Tyrion Lannister. However, he is introspective and a quite person: “I don’t socialize. I’m kind of a hermit. The life of an actor can be very lonely.”

Peter Dinklage was born in Morristown, New Jersey. He is the son of John Carl, a salesman, and Diane Dinklage, a music teacher.

He was born with achondroplasia, a common cause of dwarfism.

He is Gemini but he won’t say he is lucky. “I’m fortunate enough to find or attract very talented people. For some reason I found them, and they found me.”

He made his film debut with Living in Oblivion (1995)

He is vegetarian: “I like animals, all animals. I wouldn’t hurt a cat or a dog – or a chicken or a cow. And I wouldn’t ask someone else to hurt them for me.”

His breakout role was in The Station Agent (2003), but he would never live in an abandoned railroad station.

He is a fan of George Martin: “George Martin is an incredible writer.”

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
