Game of Thrones Season 4 premieres on April 17th!!!! I’m very excited about this. I’m a HUGE fan of the books by George H. Martin, and thus a huge fan of the HBO series as well. Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister on the hit show is amazing. In a show of awesome performances – he steals the show. Considering how well he plays the role, I find it surprising that Dinklage has never read any of the books. He sat down with David Letterman recently and mentioned that he had never read the books:
“George Martin, our author, is probably going to kill my character soon because I mentioned that,” while playfully wincing after his self-described “confession.” “Now I can’t read them now. Because our TV show is my day job. But I started to read it and I got confused. So. . . ” He trailed off and shrugged. “They’re amazing books, though, George,” he said, putting his hand up in a jokingly defensive way.
They really are fabulous books. Hefty though- big time commitment. I love him. I love him in everything. My family is a big fan of Elf during the holidays. And Death at a Funeral is maybe the funniest movie I’ve seen. The British version – not the American. I was crying laughing.

Peter Dinklage lands the March cover of Esquire Magazine, and inside the actor opened up about the tragic death of a fan.
Because of Peter’s size, he is used to being stared at. He told Esquire “Sometimes the encounters can be meaningful.” However, one time, it was traumatic. “I was walking down Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles,” Dinklage said. “There was this guy on a motorcycle right in front of me … And he looked at me. He didn’t wave, but he looked at me, and then he pulled out into traffic and this car, like, boom — killed him instantly.”
“And you were the last person he saw?” the reporter asked. “Yes. I was the last person he saw on earth,” Dinklage replied.
He talked about being the first person on the scene after the accident. “So there was this quiet moment where it was like I was the only person in the world who knew this guy was dead,” he said. “And I was there looking at him, you know, in those moments of calm after something horrible happens, the calm before the melee starts …. There was that moment when I was with him.”
The reporter asked Peter if he thought he may have distracted the motorcyclist, and this enraged the actor. “Oh, my God! F— you … I never thought of that before,” Dinklage said. “This was supposed to be a story about how I actually connected with a stranger. I’m gonna have nightmares tonight.”
