Most people recognize Peter Dinklage as the inimitable Tyrion Lannister from HBO’s Game of Thrones. What many people don’t realize is that this resident TV badass has been making a name for himself in show business for years. At the age of 46, Mr. Dinklage has been in countless movies, on many TV shows, and even video games. Known for his deep voice and no-nonsense attitude, Peter Dinklage is the perfect example of how sometimes your reputation preceding you can be a good thing. Everywhere he goes, he seems to exude the attitude that’s now earning him his own fan site: “F*** Yeah Peter Dinklage.”
From interviews to award shows, Peter Dinklage seems to approach every situation with a critical eye and sharp humor. Has anyone ever seen this man get flustered? We have a feeling he could be between Pope Francis and Oprah at dinner in Buckingham Palace and not be phased. What can we learn from this majestic being? Everyone relates to humor, acceptance speeches should be as succinct as possible, and animals are the best. Let’s all reflect on the life and times of Peter Dinklage and consider it a master class of cool. A study in swag. A lesson in levity. Peter Dinklage, you can do no wrong. Here are 11 things you probably didn't know about this living legend.
Peter Dinklage has been a vegetarian since he was a teenager and suggests other people should follow suit. He has done a vegetarian testimonial for PETA and supports humane efforts for all animals. As always, Peter decided to do even more than the typical Hollywood-vegan-pusher and even made a video supporting his cause. His video, called “Face Your Food,” encourages people to take the pledge to eat plant-based and void all animal products. He’s said, “I like animals, all animals. I wouldn’t hurt a cat or a dog-or a chicken or a cow. And I wouldn’t ask someone else to hurt them for me. That’s why I’m a vegetarian.”

1 His High School Yearbook Photo
Um, if you haven’t seen this photo, you must. Peter Dinklage’s 1987 senior yearbook photo has been circulated in magazines and websites because it is of epic eighties coolness. With a mullet and his signature no-nonsense facial expression, Peter Dinklage has never looked more admirable. In some serious Hollywood foreshadowing, his chosen yearbook quote is one from the famous actor Sam Shepard: “Words are the tools of imagery in motion.” Did Peter know he would one day be an actor known for his way with words? We can only hope. In black-and-white, his stoic expression seems to be conveying that he knows the secrets of the world and he’s worried about all of us. We’re worried about us, too, Peter. Thanks for making our lives better.
