Peter Dinklage has revealed what Tyrion Lannister was thinking in the ‘Game of Thrones’ season seven finale when he discovered Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen in bed together.
At the end of the last series, his character was seen with an ominous look on his face after seeing Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) in bed together.
Asked for Tyrion’s thoughts at that moment, the 49-yea-old actor joked: “Keep it down over there, I’m trying to get some sleep! No, ah, it’s complicated…
“A lot of the time with Tyrion, it’s professional and personal. Obviously, he has feelings for Daenerys. He loves her — or thinks he does. She’s awe-inspiring. He’s questioning that because he doesn’t have a good track record for falling in love.”
Although Tyrion doesn’t know the full extent of the drama – the pair don’t yet realise they’re nephew and aunt – he does have other issues with the pairing.
Peter added: “here’s jealousy wrapped up in there. And he loves Jon Snow, too. They’re the two people he has the most in common with, in a way — they’re both outsiders in their own families who have refused to follow the path their family has taken, and hopefully for the better.
“He’s wondering how smart of a move [Jon and Dany getting romantically involved is], because passion and politics don’t mix well. He knows the two of them getting together could be very dangerous.”
Meanwhile, the highly anticipated eighth and final series of ‘Game of Thrones’ has been delayed in 2019, despite a shorter run of six episodes for the last season.
