Peter Dinklage is cool. He is not just kind of cool, and it is definitely not that he is cool for a "little person." He is just straight up, all the way, cool. There have been many little persons throughout the years that have been actors, but Dinklage is by far the coolest of them all. He just is who he is, and he totally owns it.
Many people, and I count myself among them, think Dinklage is the best, and, of course, the coolest actor on Game of Thrones and that is truly saying something as so many of the actors are so top notch. I first saw Dinklage in the 1995 movie Living in Oblivion, which was not just the first time I saw him, but was his first role in a movie. He plays a "dwarf" who is appearing as an actor in a dream sequence. It bothers him that he has such a demeaning role and says this to the director "Have you ever had a dream with a dwarf in it? Do you know anyone who's had a dream with a dwarf in it? No! I don't even have dreams with dwarves in them. The only place I've seen dwarves in dreams is in stupid movies like this! 'Oh make it weird, put a dwarf in it!'. Everyone will go 'Woah, this must be a dream, there's a dwarf in it!'"
And that is why he is so cool. Here are 15 more cool things you didn't know about Peter Dinklage.
15 He Doesn't Care What You Call Him
14 He Is An Advocate For Little People

12 He Got The Role As Tyrion Without Having To Audition
As most of you know Peter Dinklage has been a successful actor for quite a while now. His first role was in Lost in Oblivion, and of course he had that role in Elf, and was the star of The Station Agent, which really established him as not only an excellent actor, but one who could be the lead actor in a movie.

1 He Does Not Buy That He Is A Sex Symbol
There has been a lot of talk that Dinklage is now actually a bit of a sex symbol after all of his work on Game of Thrones. This would sort of be a first for a little person, but hey, it is obvious at this point that Dinklage is all about firsts. He had this to say about being considered a sex symbol. "Honestly, I think there's an irony in all of this. I take it with a grain of salt. They'll say, 'Oh, he is sexy,' but women still go for guys who are six-foot-two. It's nice that people are thinking outside the box, but I don't believe any of it for a minute."
Would it be all that surprising if he was, though? Not really. He has done everything else one could possibly do in the business; why can't he be a sex symbol as well? No reason at all that I can see.
