The saga of Game of Thrones season 8 continues. It has been two years since HBO’s money-making mint wrapped up filming, but people can’t stop talking about it. After all, the highly popular and record-breaking show divided its fandom with a controversial and a rather rushed-up final season. Not just the fans, but the cast of the series is split up upon the same issue. Some like Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, defend it quite furiously. While others, like Charles Dance, were ready to sign the petition to change the final season. Quite unsurprisingly, Peter Dinklage belongs to the former category.

In a recent interview with The Independent, Dinklage who played Tyrion Lannister on the show seemed to be defending the show once again. He said, “I know a lot of people were supposedly surprised by the ending, but if you paid attention, the clues were there. We told you not to name your dog Khaleesi.”

Dinklage is also excited for the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon, and he has a word of advice for the showrunner. He asked them to follow a completely different path and not try to recreate the predecessor’s story, “If you try to recreate it, that feels like a money grab. With a lot of sequels, the reason for them is that the first one made a lot of money, which is why they aren’t as strong,”

Of course Peter Dinklage is right on advising the showrunners of not trying to duplicate Game of Thrones. Casey Bloys(HBO Programming) said the same thing recently. Mr. Casey Bloys spoke with showrunners, Ryan Condal & Miguel Sapochnik, about House of the Dragon needing to be it’s own thing while acknowledging it’s predecessor.

Mr. Casey Bloys did say, that was a tricky thing for them to do. But, he is confident in their abilities to tell a unique story with House of the Dragon.
