While he had been turning in stellar work for years, Game of Thrones served as the world’s major introduction to Peter Dinklage, and for that, we will be forever grateful. After eventually revealing himself to be one of the noblest men in Westeros, Dinklage’s Tyrion Lannister is a fan favorite, which on that show means that everyone is constantly fearing for his life. While there are absolutely no guarantees on Game of Thrones, Tyrion seems like he could be one to make it to the end, and that something great would be lost if he left. Whether that will be the case remains to be seen, but Dinklage has put in stellar work over the course of five seasons, bringing one of author George R.R. Martin’s best characters to vivid life.

While most associate him the most strongly with Tyrion, there is way more to Dinklage than Game of Thrones. While he is a really private guy, the glimpses that fans have gotten into his life show one who has lived much and lived well. Let’s take a look at some facts about Peter Dinklage.
