Actor Peter Dinklage

A lot of people would say that Peter Dinklage was a damn good actor ever before he started to become showered with awards for his role on HBO’s Game of Thrones. He won critical acclaim for his performances in 2003’s The Station Agent and 2007’s Death at a Funeral before he ever auditioned to play Tyrion Lannister. However, in an interview with Vulture Dinklage revealed that acting on a TV show helped improved his abilities by making the craft seem more like a regular job. Dinklage says:

“One of the best things I can say about being on a TV show is that it makes you a better actor. It takes away the preciousness; it makes you see acting as work. You’re getting up, you’re delivering, you’re telling a story, you’re a piece of a whole, and it’s not about some self-involved process. It’s about being prepared, saying your lines, and stripping away all the bullshit artifice. It’s like acting as carpentry: Put that beam up; put that nail in. I love that approach.”
