I don’t know why that’s what they picked, because the show was really more than that. ” A comment that explains that Peter Dinklage’s favorite passage is when Daenerys’ dragon decides to burn the throne, ending a question the actor designates as “irreverent”.
“They wanted the pretty white people to go together towards the setting sun. By the way, it’s fictional. There are dragons in it. Move on.” quips Dinklage, who will soon be playing Cyrano of Joe wright in the skin of the poet in love with Roxanne.
