Best known as The Imp in the whole of Seven Kingdoms, Tyrion Lannister played by Emmy-winner Peter Dinklage made a shocking finale in HBO's "Game of Thrones" season 4 finale after an abrupt and unexpected confrontation with his father that led him to put an arrow through his heart. But now that season 4 is over, what is next to the kinslayer?
Peter Dinklage, winner of the award for best performance by an actor in a supporting role in a series, mini-series or motion picture made for television, for "Game of Thrones," poses backstage at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif, Jan 15, 2012.
No one (including the ones who read the book) expected Tyrion to kill his father (Charles Dance) but after years of humiliation Tyrion couldn't take it anymore, and to top it off seeing Shae (Sibel Kekilli) with his father is the deal breaker. Thanks to Dinklage electrifying portrayal of Tyrion together with its ensemble cast the show is one of the most watched show in television today.
Celebdirty Laundry recently posted on what to expect to Dinklage's character on the show's upcoming season after he boarded a ship to get away with his death sentence. The gossip site posted a summary on Tyrion's journey to Daenarys Targaryen as he plans to make an alliance to the Mother of Dragons.
The synopsis reads: "Tyrion's boarded a ship that's headed to Pentos. Tyrion lands up at the house of Illyrio Mopatis, which is where Daenerys Targaryen [Emilia Clarke] and Viserys Targaryen [Harry Lloyd] were staying, way back in the pilot. Tyrion is sent to Dany by Illyrio, who figures that Tyrion's expertise and hatred of his family will help Dany. However, Tyrion's travel companions end up being a surprise: one is an exiled former hand of the king [to the 'mad king' Aerys], and the other is Aegon Targareyn, Dany's long-lost supposedly-dead cousin and Rhaegar's long-lost supposedly dead son. And guess what? He also 'technically' has more claim to the throne than Dany does, if he actually is who he says he is, of course."
"So Tyrion's on his way to Dany, wondering if he should throw his support behind this Aegon fellow instead. However, the three of them stop in the city of Volantis while journeying east, and who should Tyrion bump into there but Jorah Mormont [Iain Glen]. Jorah 'captures' Tyrion to take him to Dany, in an effort to atone for his sins. However, Jorah and Tyrion are both in turn captured and sold into slavery [getting separated from Aegon in the process]. Tyrion and Jorah eventually make it to Meereen as their master dies, but unfortunately, they've arrived just as Meereen and the Yunkai are about to go to war. They manage to flee to the Second Sons, but we can't help but wonder if the show will make Tyrion's meeting with Dany come a lot sooner than that."
Enjoying the break from the show's extensive production, the "X-Men: Day of Future Past" star was photographed recently with his daughter Zelig as he took her for a ride in her stroller in NYC. Married to his theater director wife Erica Schmidt, the father of one took and spent some time with his family while filming some scenes in his upcoming movie, "Pixel" which he stars alongside Adam Sandler, in Toronto, Canada.
Rumoured to be nominated in his outstanding performance in season 4, the 45-year-old actor will soon start filming "O Lucky Day," a movie centers around a man who tried to convince everyone that he is a leprechaun. Dinklage will co-produce the movie and is expected to be released next year.
