“It’s still fun, but easier,” he says. “I’ve had fewer days shooting. With all the [show’s] different story lines, the focus sometimes shifts, which is fine.”
But, you can expect everyone in King’s Landing to notice Tyrion’s new battle wounds. Including daddy and mean sister, Cersei. “The three of us spar a lot this season,” Dinklage says. “That’s a challenge because we’re a family and it’s a family with a very dark history with each other. They’re really rich, really well-written long scenes — six-page scenes — of just us talking. I really want to do those justice, you really want to serve it well.”
But, don’t expect Tyrion to start whining yet. He’s been hated every since the night his mother died giving birth to him. “He’s a survivor,” Dinklage says. “He crawls his way back, to a certain extent. But that’s what’s fun about this character. He’ll make the best out of every situation no matter what position he’s put in.”
“Game of Thrones” season three returns on Sunday night at 9 p.m. only on HBO!
