“I have to disagree. Death is so final, yet life is full of possibilities”

Tyrion Lannister of Game of Thrones had been a people’s favourite. So is Peter Dinklage who played Tyrion on screen. Peter bid goodbye to his character in GoT with a record. He won the award of Best Supporting actor 4 times in Emmy’s, a feat not many have achieved.

The award for the final season of the show was his fourth win for the role overall and second consecutive win, setting a record for the most trophies ever for supporting actor in a drama. He was nominated eight times for his role as the youngest of Tywin Lannister’s three children, reports Variety.

“I count myself so fortunate to be a member of a community that is nothing but all about tolerance and diversity. Because no other place could I be standing on a stage like this,” said the actor, who was born with dwarfism.

“It’s been about 10 years, all said and done, since the moment I met Dave and Dan until right now,” Dinklage said, referring to series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

“I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I knew David and Dan were quite brilliant. We did nothing but sweat, we did nothing but laugh. Dave and Dan, we literally walked through fire and ice for you, literally. And I would do it all again in a heartbeat,” Peter said.

He was bleeped as he described his colleagues as “the most talented motherf–king people.”
