career. His first film character, Tito from ''Film/LivingInOblivion'', even went on an angry rant about the LittlePeopleAreSurreal trope. Later, his role in ''Film/{{Elf}}'' inverted that trope by establishing Creator/WillFerrell's character as the odd one out for assuming that Dinklage's character was a {{Christmas el|ves}}f.

->"I hate that word -- ''lucky''. It cheapens a lot of hard work. Living in an apartment without any heat and paying for dinner with dimes -- I don't think I felt myself lucky back then, doing plays for fifty bucks and trying to be true to myself as an artist and turning down commercials where they wanted a leprechaun. Saying I was lucky negates the hard work I put in and spits on that guy who's freezing his ass off back in Brooklyn. So I won't say I'm lucky. I'm fortunate enough to find or attract very talented people. For some reason I foudn them, and they found me."

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: As a result of his being cast for the role of Tyrion, he caused this. In the books, Tyrion is described as being facially deformed in addition to being a dwarf. Tyrion in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' as played by Peter Dinklage is still short, but he's called attractive by some characters. This still applies even after Tyrion [[spoiler:is nearly assassinated]], as his injuries from this are less serious compared to the books, presumably since book-accurate prosthetics would be extremely expensive and time consuming to maintain. Though it's mitigated a bit by Dinklage being in his 40s while supposedly being the youngest Lannister sibling.
