Game Of Thrones Theory Could Change The Way You Look At Tyrion Forever

I’m going to go out on a limb here and state that I think Tyrion Lannister is one of the best characters in all of fiction, and at least the best in Game of Thrones. The ever-caustic, wealthy, hyper-intelligent, hilarious dwarf is one of the foremost point-of-view characters in George R.R. Matrin’s ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series of novels, and when portrayed brilliantly by an actor as talented as Peter Dinklage. you can bet all the gold in Casterly Rock that he’ll steal whatever scene he
