The worldwide famous show, Game of Thrones’ final season is on the verge of its start. The show is premiering on HBO on April 14, 2019. Today we will talk about one of the important characters of the show, Tyrion Lannister. Yes, the 4 feet 5 inches tall Tyrion Lannister’s role is playing by famous actor Peter Dinklage in the show.
Born on June 11, 1969, in Morristown, New Jersey, U.S, he is 49 years old. He is married to Erica Schmidt, who is a theatre director in 2005. He is the father of two children. Surprisingly, the name of their daughter, born in 2011, has not been revealed publicly, and Dinklage has denied media reports that the girl’s name is “Zelig”.
Even more surprising is Dinklage and Schmidt had a second child in 2017. But the couple never revealed the name or sex of this second child. It might be because Peter wants to give his children and a normal life away from the media glare. See some of his family’s beautiful pictures:
The scar that you see on his face is a real one that he got in the early 1990s when he was in a “punk-funk-rap” band called Whizzy. His face got injured while performing. This scar runs from his neck to his eyebrow. Dinklage has a form of dwarfism, achondroplasia, which affects bone growth. This is the reason he is 4 feet 5 inches (135 cm) tall. He has normal-sized head and torso but short limbs.
