Daenerys was pushed to become the Mad Queen, says Peter Dinklage

Game of Thrones ended its run earlier this year and since then the cast and crew of the show have either taken a vacation or gone on to do different kinds of stuff. Peter Dinklage, who is now popular worldwide thanks to his portrayal of Tyrion Lannister on the show, has returned to theatre with a play called “Cyrano”, and recently discussed Thrones in an interview about the play. Read on!

Dinklage recently spoke to New Yorker about his life after Thrones’ and on the final season of the show.

When asked about why he chose to do the Broadway musical show straight after a show of magnitude of Thrones’, Dinklage responded:

“I don’t really have an agenda. Whatever is inspiring to me, I go for it. Obviously, you don’t want to repeat yourself. I’m not going to jump into another show with dragons.”

He was also asked about whether he followed the fans reaction to the final season, Dinklage replied:

“No. Well, everybody’s always going to have an opinion, and that means an ownership. It’s like breaking up with somebody. They get upset. I can’t speak for everybody, but my feeling is they didn’t want it to end, so a lot of people got angry. I feel like what [the showrunners] Dave [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] did was extraordinary.”

Dinklage was also asked about his response to Daenerys Targaryen‘s fascist turn in the final season. He responded:

“Yeah. But that’s because of what was happening all along. It added up to something. There are people who’ve named their children Khaleesi. You’ve just got to maybe wait till the series finale before you get that tattoo or name your golden retriever Daenerys! I can’t help you! I’m sorry. She went mad. She was driven to that, and she’s a victim as well in terms of how she was treated. She went through it, and she came out angry, as a lot of us do.”

Dinklage also revealed he didn’t expect Tyrion to survive and was asked if Tyrion’s evolution was linked to his own personal growth to which he replied:

“Not particularly. I just loved Northern Ireland, where we shot it. It became my second home. So I miss that life. I miss all of that. It’s pretty extreme things he went through. He killed his father and his girlfriend. I didn’t really progress along the same path as he did. But I did enjoy playing him.”

Well, do you agree with Dinklage’s analysis of the fan’s reaction towards the show’s final season? Write us in the comments below!

Read on!

Kit was recently at the 2020 Golden Globe Awards where he was the only Game of Thrones actor nominated for one. Ryan Seacrest of E! Caught up with them for a short interview bit on the red carpet. Check the video out:

Seacrest noted he was the only Game of Thrones member present at the awards (except Jason Momoa). Kit said:

“I haven’t got my gang. It’s odd. I haven’t been to these things without the rest of us around. So I’m a little jealous of the Succession dudes.”

Kit was nominated for the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series (Drama) category but did not win. Seacrest then asked him if he still thought about Jon Snow:

“I think about him all the time. It was always just getting into costume the first day back, getting into that outfit and just sort of being back on set, back with him on character. I loved it. It’s in retrospect that you start loving it. It does go by fast. Ten years, like that.”

Well, we hope Kit knows that we miss Jon Snow just as much as he does.  what do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

On asked about why the show became such a global cultural phenomenon, Maisie Williams gestured towards herself!

Sophie Turner on the other hand said:

“Fantastical elements that gave the escapism, the very human interaction and emotions” was what she believed was the perfect combination.

Kristofer Hivju a.k.a. Tormund Giantsbane on the show thought:

“It is so much that is unexpected, it doesn’t follow any rules of storytelling.” He also added the sheer amount of hard work that about 2000 people put in on the show had also something to do about making the show a giant success.

Jerome Flynn that played the character of Bronn on the show said:

“The richness of character that George originally created had so much wide array of emotions. The job the makers did of translating the characters from book to the screen and also the epic nature that HBO brought to the show”

Flynn believed are all part of the reasons why the show was such a massive success. Isaac Hempstead on the other hand believed:

“The attention to detail on the show was unparalleled. Literally, the books on the show were handwritten by the props department and you might only see it for 2 minutes..”

He also credited writer George R. R. Martin for creating such a vast universe through his books.

Wasn’t it nice to see the whole cast talking about the show so fondly? Let us know why you thought the show became such a big success?
