Who knew game of thrones was number one without already watching?
''a very small man can cast a very large shadow.''

Mitchell Pearce:
"Your not on trial for being a dwarf"
"Oh yes I am, I've been on trial for that, my entire life"

Not only does that quote mean something to Tyrion Lannister, it means something to Peter Dinklage himself.

They couldn't have cast a better man to be Tyrion.
Easily one of the best actors ever.

He's got a smouldering look about him, people might be crude and judge on size, but I just see a sexy guy.
Philip K. Duck
Philip K. Duck:
Best actor on GoT
Markus Buhler
Markus Buhler:
Peter Dinklage is remarkably good at changing his voice. Most of those characters had totally different voices. He is a truly talented man.

gee I wonder what number one is

"He's a Golden Globe and Emmy-winning actor who's proven size doesn't matter" Was that really necessary? What does have his height to do with his acting ability? I don't care about political correctness, but I don't get the point of putting this in the description. Maybe I'm nitpicking, though. What matters is that this guy is an awesome actor.

For the game of thrones scene, they shouldve put the trial scene where he snapped after seeing shay go against him.. I think that was the best performance he has put so far on the show.
I want Peter Dinklage to read me bedtime stories every night. I would sleep like a baby.

RaLPhis Xamida:
No other actor could play Tyrion and would be soo good. .
all i want is to be BFFs with Tyrion Lannister who is arguably the best character in game of thrones
Jack Knightley
Jack Knightley:
When's he's on trial in game of thrones, that scene was powerful

Without Peter Game of Thrones would be nothing.

tyrion is much less funny in Mereen than he was in kings landing, i miss the golder trio: tyrion, bronn and Podrick, ..........hope all of them will re-unite at Westeros someday
this guy is terrific in absolutely everything! i particularly liked him in the film, "the station agent".
Peter Dink
Peter Dink:
Give me an Oscar already!
Peter Dinklage is one of my favourite actors, but I can never pin down a single reason as to why. Maybe it's the gravitas in his performances, maybe because he takes comedic and serious roles with equally amazing results, or the fact that no other actor I've ever seen gets pissed off quite like he does ^_^
Daenerys Targaryen
Daenerys Targaryen:
Tyrion better be #1 or I'll demand trial by combat.
"before we unveil our number 1 pick"

oh my god, i can't take this suspense! what role is gonna be?! tell me!

He's maybe small, but...

He's bigger than me!
I was so hopeful that Game of Thrones would be his number one performance.
his voice is amazing

I loved Peter's acting since the movie, "The Station Agent" in 2003. He has overcome so much and has finally gained respect in Hollywood. Congrats, Peter!
00:06 Peter is a great actor, we know this, hence why the video exists. There's no need to highlight he's a dwarf. He's an awesome actor and that's why we are watching, and acting is not affected by dwarfism. The more people talk about how he's 'overcome' something the more they demean the issue rather than normalise it. I like him for being him.

I'm a simple man I see game of thrones I click
I saw him on The Station Agent first, then Penelope. This guy can make you laugh till you snort your popcorn without even uttering a word or cracking a joke.
Maven Esquith
Maven Esquith:
I'm really glad that Peter is a dwarf. I don't know how he feels about it but I think if I were a dwarf I would want someone as admirable as him to look up to. I heard he doesn't take cliche elf roles where they're just there for their height instead of talent. He could give any actor a run for their money and he is just awesome in every role. Anyone who thinks height limits you need only look at how great he is at doing what he loves and know they can do the same. I don't think anyone else would have been quite as inspiring.
Great to see The Station Agent turn up on any list of good movies/TV series, and rightly placed at number 2.

(SPOILERS OF GAME OF THRONES) i rly like the sceene at the trial in season 4, where he tells how much he hates everyone and when he demands a trial by combat, theat sceen is just sooo awsome!!! :D
"Intelligent imp of the lannister clan."
Did you even watch the show?

They say Great things come in small packages and in the case of Peter
Dinklage that could not be more true, every small nuance of Peter
Dinklage in games of thrones is nothing short of Genius actor who can
capture the moment and make me appreciate the art of acting, the
cast is very talented but i was hypnotize by his role and the way he
carry out the story line ,not many people can understand the difficulty
of casting a serious role due to his measurement but for me he is the
tallest actor in the cast and the one who i enjoy the most. i thank the
production for casting him and i hope to see more of this little genius
on the big screen.

"The Station Agent" is when I first fell in love with Peter Dinklage. I remember reading an article where he said that he didn't think he was sexy and I nearly had a heart attack!!! He is a legendary actor!

sanket kamble:
its fun to watch the full list just for the first one....which we already knew what its gonna be
He's really great at stealing the best scenes in movies especially when he has limited screen time. Makes it count.

I really like him in Penelope.
Anton Bruce
Anton Bruce:
He ALSO had a great, if very small, part in "Avengers: Infinity War". And, he had one of the best lines in the movie: "You're about to take the full force of a star. It will kill you". Thor: "Only if I die". His character: "Yes...that's what 'killing you' means".
One of my favorite actors ever. Such a handsome man too.

He was great in Low Down.
Daniel Babineau
Daniel Babineau:
Peter Dinklage is just awesome. He has done something that no other actor of his stature has ever done for me when watching him - he makes me forget about his unfortunate height. He is just such an amazing actor, his acting chops allow his characters and their larger than life personas to completely overshadow his height.
Tyrion. Hand down.

My Favorite Peter Dinklage role is from a move called Knight Of Badassdom he play's a character named Hung who is a live action role-player who never brakes character even when he is tripping balls on shrooms

I thought Peter Dinklage was great in the Australian film, 'I Love You Too' (2010).
He co-starred opposite Brendan Cowell and Yvonne Stravoshki.

Dinklages character named Hung from the Kights of the Badassdom movie should have been here!
William Seward
William Seward:
The first time I saw him in "A Little Bit Of Heaven" he blew me away with his presence. That said, "My Dinner With Herve" was astounding!
What about when he said "we've woken the hive!" In destiny.
