Added DiffLines:

* AbilityOverAppearance:
** Dinklage looks nothing like the comic version of Bolivar Trask (the character he portrays in ''Days of Future Past'', who was in fact previously played by Bill Duke), but was cast on the strength of his performance.
** Dinklage also said he intentionally avoided taking any roles that relied on his dwarfism early in his career, feeling that he should be billed on the strength of his acting, not his height. Compare his career arc with that of, say, Creator/VerneTroyer, and it clearly paid off.


Added DiffLines:

* DyeingForYourArt: As you can see from the photo, he's got naturally dark hair, but to play Tyrion Lannister he dyed his hair blond in order to fit in with the other Lannisters, who are almost all blond(e).
* FakeBrit:
** Puts on an English accent as Tyrion in ''Series/GameOfThrones''. The results are... mixed, though overall the accent isn't actually too bad on its own merits; the main problem is that he's surrounded by ''real'' Brits [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg (and a Dane)]]. Basically it's more than adequate to the ears of a non-Brit, and to a proper Brit...well, general consensus is that it's not bad for an American.
** In the ''Film/PrinceCaspian'' film he pulls off a far more convincing cockney accent.
* HeAlsoDid: Prior to Game of Thrones, he was in an episode of ''Series/ThirtyRock'' as one of Liz Lemon's (many) boyfriends, and played Simon Bar Sinister in the [[Film/{{Underdog}} live-action reboot]] of ''WesternAnimation/{{Underdog}}''.
* IronyAsSheIsCast:
** He plays Captain Gutt in ''WesternAnimation/IceAge4ContinentalDrift''. A [[MeaningfulName Gigantopithecus]].
** Happened again with ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBirdsMovie'', where he plays the Mighty Eagle.


Added DiffLines:

* StarMakingRole: Anybody who didn't know him by the time of ''Series/GameOfThrones'' probably knows him best as Tyrion Lannister.

->"''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 found them, and they found me.''"
