You could search high and low in Hollywood and you may not be able to point to another actor that’s having a better run than Peter Dinklage. The actor seemingly pops up in everything, but it’s not for the sake of being seen. Dinklage is a truly excellent actor. He starred as James in the Academy-Award-nominated Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. He then showed up in one of the highest grossing films of all time, Avengers: Infinity War, as Eitri, but he’s almost certainly most recognizable as Tyrion Lannister in the smash hit HBO series Game of Thrones.
With Game of Thrones‘ final season on the way, fans of the show are starting to prepare themselves for the worst while still hoping for the best. If there’s anything we’ve learned over the past seven seasons of the series, it’s that anything and everything can and probably will happen. Major characters can be killed off at any moment, alliances change with the wind, and with the Night King, his White Walkers, and the army of the dead heading south, it’s about to get ugly.
Tyrion Lannister has proven himself to be quite the strategist and survivor over the entirety of the series. Now that he’s aligned himself with Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow, he’s got more to worry about than just the Night King. As per normal, he also has to watch his back as his own sister, Cersei is always out to get him.
After winning the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama for the third time in his career for his role as Tyrion Lannister, Dinklage discussed the show’s ending backstage. According to Indiewire, Dinklage had this to say:
“It was very sad. This is not only a great TV show to be part of, but it was an enormous family to be part of. [It’s] definitely hard to say goodbye to because it wasn’t just saying goodbye to the show, [it] was saying goodbye to a life over there.”
Game of Thrones will return to HBO in 2019, but there isn’t a set date at this time. We’ll bring more information as we have it.
