In a recent interview with Ali Plumb on BBC Radio 1, Dinklage looked back at the roles he had traversed in his career, and what each of them stood for. Of course, the discussion began with Game of Thrones’ Tyrion Lannister, to which he said:

“Character of Tyrion, what does he mean to me… He means a good time, he means a strong moral compass in a world that really didn’t have much of a moral compass. Even though on paper he seems to be the most morally bankrupt individual there is. He’s really the one, even at the end, he had to convince the heroic Jon Snow to do something as bad as it was. Tyrion was the guiding force in many ways of that world. And he did it behind the curtain, being the one least likely to succeed. He provided, most importantly, levity to the situation. At least, that’s my go-to and I think that was what the audience needed quite often in that show.”

My favorite guiding thought about Tyrion is: I want to die how Tryion wants to die, “lying in my bed at the age of eighty, with a belly full of wine and a woman’s mouth wrapped around my c#$k”. What a great T-shirt that would make!!
