You could say that Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen is the heart of Game of Thrones, and you might also say that Maisie Williams's Arya Stark is its soul. But no one would deny that Tyrion Lannister, memorably portrayed by Peter Dinklage, is the HBO fantasy series's brain.

While the HBO fantasy series' assorted lords and ladies backstab their way to courtly domination, Tyrion is one of the the few characters who sees the game of thrones as the cosmic joke that is it – even as he remains one of its best players.
Dinklage, 45, who's nominated for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series, is the audience stand-in, and his withering wit helps bring a show full of dragons and ice zombies down to a human level.

In 2013, Tyrion Lannister made $49 million dollars, which really p---ed him off, because it was just a few short of a million a week.
This amazing mash-up of Game of Thrones and The Wolf of Wall Street will make the day of any fan of Peter Dinklage, Martin Scorsese's film or clever editing in general.

Peter Dinklage may not be a typical Hollywood star. But he certainly faces the thrills and challenges of being a huge celebrity – as evidenced by his being mobbed by admirers.
"Game of Thrones fans are the nicest people ever, but a thousand nice people coming at me gives me claustrophobia," the actor, who plays Tyrion Lannister on HBO's hit fantasy series, tells Playboy in a new interview.
"I can't wear a pair of sunglasses and pull my hat down and just disappear. I'm 4½ feet tall, so I sort of stand out."
