Tyrion

Hand of the Queen Daenerys, Tyrion Lannister, is one of the most beloved characters on Game of Thrones. Played by the veteran actor Peter Dinklage, the character was famous for his wise and romantic nature, unlike the typical dwarves of fantasy movies. James Hibberd explained how Dinklage avoided being stereotyped as a typical dwarf in his book Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon.

The Entertainment Weekly editor revealed Peter had refused to grow a bread for the show initially. Tyrion had a long, thick beard according to George R.R. Martin’s book. However, Peter believed it would earn him a stereotype. He had just played a fantastical dwarf with a long, flowing white beard, in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.

This is why Tyrion is clean-shaven in the first few seasons,” Hibberd explained in his book. “After the character was established, he does end up growing his kind of cool, rockstar beard.”

Game of Thrones showrunner David Benioff had earlier said Peter was the perfect choice for Tyrion in a New York Times interview. He described Dinklage as ‘being the core of humanity, covered by a shell of sardonic dry wit, is pretty well in keeping with the character.’ He had earlier praised Pedro Pascal for his role as Oberyn Martell.

Game of Thrones’ Iain Glenn revealed how he got into acting

Most of the celebrities we see on the big screen started from humble beginnings. Some of the Game of Thrones stars joined the series young. They sort of grew up with the series like Maisie Williams (Arya Stark). Others joined the show when they were already famous. Like the Scottish actor Iain Glenn, who played the heroic knight Ser Jorah Mormont.

Iain didn’t initially consider acting as a career. He was kind of forced into it by his friends while studying at Aberdeen University. Glenn talked to the Irish Examiner about his humble beginnings.

It was there that friends of mine got involved and I was slightly dragged against my will into it. I had no idea what actors were and that you could earn a living for what they did.”

He continued, “I felt that I could occupy that space in my imagination where I believe the world in which I was standing in and seemed to be able to project that in a small way. I just got really addicted very quickly for that feeling. I bumped into it very accidentally, I had no great desire, I didn’t even know what it was until I was 18, really.”

Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is done talking about the show

Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is done talking about the show

Sometimes a show becomes so popular, it often hides other accomplishments of its cast. The show becomes their identity, people often recognize them by their character from the show. Game of Thrones is an example of such a franchise. The fantasy series became the biggest show of the past decade, both in terms of its budget and viewership. However, actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who played Jaime Lannister on the show, is done talking about it.

In a recent interview with the Independent, Waldau revealed he wanted fans to recognize his other works too. He said, “Over those eight seasons, I did two films every year more or less. But obviously, the success of the show, which is so enormous, makes however big those other successes are pale in comparison. I worked more weeks on other shows than Game of Thrones. In my world, those other jobs took up much more space than Jaime Lannister did.”

One such job was the small-town thriller The Silencing, released earlier this year. “The script had been around for a couple of years,” he said. “I just liked the basic story of a guy who’s a drunk and then loses his daughter. Normally, in a story, that’s when the change would happen, but it doesn’t. I thought that was interesting.”

Pedro Pascal was wooed by Baby Yoda's charms on the Mandalorian

An actor needs to interact with the camera, co-stars and objects on the set to make the most out of their performance. There are times when they get attached to a prop on-set. It becomes a part of their character and memories connected to their performance on the show. Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner brought the prop used as the Winterfell throne to her home. Another Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal is very fond of a prop from a set (not from Game of Thrones, though).

Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian has managed to steal the show from the series’ main star, Pedro himself. Although, Pedro doesn’t seem to complain. In fact, the actor himself seems to have fallen in love with the charms of Baby Yoda.

In PEOPLE’s latest issue, Pascal revealed he was ‘immediately convinced’ to join the series after seeing Baby Yoda’s concept art. He often ended up ‘cooing a little bit’ on set with the puppet.

“I’d then have conversations in the same way that we did when we were kids with our own little toys,” Pascal said. “It has everything to do with the amount of work that these people have put into it, because it’s a very, very special creation, and it feels as such when you see it in person.”
