Peter Dinklage talks about the journey with Game of Thrones and Tyrion Lannister

Tyrion Lannister. Peter Dinklage. Can one differentiate much? Probably not. The American actor has touched one and all with his flamboyant yet sensitive portrayal of a character that’s become one of the most loved on screen. Game of Thrones has gifted us a world that we don’t want to leave.

It’s quite imaginable then how the actors must feel at the end of the finish line. The filming for the show’s final season has concluded recently. And all the actors have had something or the other to say to the obvious questions- How’s it gonna end? What happens to your character? How was the experience?

Peter Dinklage talks about the journey with Game of Thrones and Tyrion Lannister

In a recent interview with Vulture, Peter Dinklage talked about his latest TV movie My Dinner with Hervé, the end of his association with Game of Thrones, and his journey as an actor. Talking about his final time on set for Game of Thrones, he said, “It’s always anticlimactic for the character’s last day. Nothing is shot chronologically, so you don’t get some big mountaintop scene or anything.”

“It’s just, “That’s a wrap on Peter Dinklage.” But as anticlimactic as it was, my last day was also beautifully bittersweet. A lot of people whom I love were on set that day. Even if they weren’t working, they came to set, which was beautiful. I tried to do the same thing when other [Game of Thrones] actors were wrapping out.”

When it came to saying goodbye to the show and the fellow actors, Peter admitted, “It was hard. I won’t say their name or their character’s name, but one of the young people on the show wrapped this past season and everybody was a wreck. This person had grown up on the show, you know?”

“They were a child and now they were an adult. And then they’re done. It’s like we were witnessing this person saying goodbye to their childhood. I know Game of Thrones is just a TV show, la-di-da, but it was our life.”

Peter Dinklage talks about the journey with Game of Thrones and Tyrion LannisterOn a personal level, he said it was hard to separate the TV show from his life. He elaborated, “It was my life, far away in Ireland (A big part of the show was shot in Northern Ireland). People think I’ll miss the TV show- yes, of course, I’ll miss it, but I also lived in a foreign country for many years and developed deep roots.”

“That’s a big part of me, and suddenly it’s just like, Yep, that’s over. Back home now. Wait, what? Really? You keep in touch, or lose touch, with the group of people you were very close with. It’s strange. I wonder how healthy that is. Probably it’s unhealthy.”

Tyrion Lannister has been a-man-for-all-seasons. We have admired all his traits; his wits, his will to live, his bright presence, his growth into a mature yet non-serious status. But how does Peter Dinklage see Tyrion’s trajectory?

“He certainly developed a deeper sense of responsibility over the course of the show. He was a pretty irresponsible character, to begin with. He used his position as the outcast of his family like an adolescent would. He pushed it in their [the Lannisters’] faces. The beauty of Tyrion is that he grew out of that mode in a couple of seasons and developed a strong sense of responsibility. Not morality, because he always had that, but what to do with his intelligence.”

Dinklage’s new television film My Dinner with Herve is based on the life of French-born actor and painter, Hervé Villechaize. While talking about the film, Peter talked about the butterfly effect of fame. How being constantly in social touch with the fans can chip away the magic of believability in a character!

But how has a show like Game of Thrones affected his acting? Has his approach changed over time? “Yes. One of the best things I can say about being on a TV show is that it makes you a better actor. It takes away the preciousness; it makes you see acting as work.”

“You’re getting up, you’re delivering, you’re telling a story, you’re a piece of a whole, and it’s not about some self-involved process. It’s about being prepared, saying your lines, and stripping away all the bullshit artifice. It’s like acting as carpentry- Put that beam up; put that nail in. I love that approach.”

On his feelings about where is Tyrion at the end of the series, he exclaimed, “I feel very, very- I’m trying to find the right word. I think he was given a very good conclusion. No matter what that is- death can be a great way out.” Perhaps that tells us to leave our guts open to a grim fate for our giant of Lannister.

Emilia Clarke greets Game of Thrones co-star Iain Glen with throwback pics as he joins Instagram

Game of Thrones star Iain Glen has finally decided to join the social media platform Instagram. Guess who is the first one to welcome him? His Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke! Fans of the highly popular TV series know Iain’s character Jorah Mormont shared an unrequited love for Emilia’s character Daenerys Targaryen. Though his feelings were never reciprocated, Daenerys did respect and care for him. On Monday, Emilia welcomed the veteran actor with some rare behind-the-scenes photos on Instagram.

Glen recently made his Instagram debut and an elated Clarke shared the news with her 26.9 million followers. The actress posted a series of pictures with Glen from the sets of Game of Thrones and mentioned in the caption, “The man. The myth. The Legend @iainglen60 has joined Instagram. “Khaleeessi” My hero and my guide for over a decade. Please insta world show this man the lovin he deserves.”

Netizens were quick to respond to Clarke’s Instagram post that reminded them of the Game of Thrones and the relationship that the two characters shared on-screen. Many netizens termed it as the “friendzone” relationship. Commenting on Clarke’s latest post, Joey Santos wrote, “Friendzone re-established.” Another user remembered Glen as, “He was the hope for all those of us who were friendzoned.”

Age of Darkness: A survival RTS game inspired by Game of Thrones’ The Long Night

Video games and TV shows/movies have often worked hand-in-hand to help promote each other. They also provide the ultimate user experience, where players can live through their favourite films or series. Game of Thrones’ The Long Night was one of the most horrific and stressful episodes of the series. One game developer PlaySide recently released Age of Darkness, a horror survival video game heavily inspired by the Game of Thrones episode.

When starting development we were inspired by the Game of Thrones episode ‘The Long Night’,” explains James Berkelmans in an interview with PCGamesN, one of the game’s designers. “The whole idea being that when night came you had to hold your ground against a large horde of enemies, that’s where the idea of our death nights started.”

“We’ve created this system to give us the flexibility to create some amazing game moments,” says Mario Barone, another designer. “It goes without saying that the sheer amount of units our engine can allow is very impressive. Not only can we do this – but we can do so with many 3D effects and a highly detailed world.”

As the guardian of the last city, you go through an intense day/night cycle where you must balance building up your settlement and exploring the wilderness around you to hunt for valuable resources during the day. As night descends, there’s a brief window of time where enemies are tougher, but the rewards get better. When the ‘death night’ starts for real you’ll want to be behind your walls.

It’s been 10 years since ‘A Dance with Dragons’ was published

Published

Author George R. R. Martin’s most recent Game of Thrones novel, ‘A Dance with Dragons’ came out about a decade ago in July.

Game of Thrones wrapped up filming nearly two years ago, but it has been a decade since the most recent book in the series came out. Fans have been waiting for the next book Winds of Winter for forever now. George R. R. Martin keeps promising he is working on the novel, and this time he has promised he will complete it in early 2022. He said in an interview with WTTW recently that he thinks that his first priority, House of the Dragon, will “probably be on next spring” — and the next, long-awaited book in this series, The Winds of Winter.

Author George R. R. Martin’s most recent Game of Thrones novel, ‘A Dance with Dragons’ came out about a decade ago in July.

The last book to be published in the Game of Thrones series was A Dance with Dragons on July 12, 2011, almost 10 years ago. It had a lot of shocking and exciting stories, such as Jon Snow beheading Janos Slynt in the courtyard at Castle Black, Daenerys Targaryen mounting Drogon for the first time in Daznak’s Pit. There’s Cersei Lannister’s harrowing walk of shame, and there’s the Night’s Watch rebelling against Jon Snow.

However, Martin’s inability to write at a faster speed has deeply frustrated the fans. His long list of admirers has mostly turned into critics, which also includes famous literary figures such as horror icon Stephen King. Whether Martin likes it or not, it has been a lot of time since he last wrote a Game of Thrones book.
