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.”

Enjoy your day Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you.
