In my opinion, we might have to wait until this time next year to see Season 8 of Game of Thrones. Still, the wait will be worth it if the final season of this TV show delivers. I can only imagine how surreal it must have been for the cast to shoot their final scenes, especially someone as synonymous with this show as Peter Dinklage.
Clearly, he cannot reveal much about Season 8 but, in an interview with Vulture, Peter Dinklage spoke about his last day on set and Tyrion Lannister.
Game of Thrones
Here is what Peter Dinklage said on what it was like on his last day on the set of Game of Thrones:
“It’s always anticlimactic for the character’s last day. Nothing is shot chronologically, so you don’t get some big mountaintop scene or anything. It’s just, ‘That’s a wrap on Peter Dinklage.’ But as anticlimactic as it was, my last day was also beautifully bittersweet.”
“A lot of people whom I love were on set that day. Even if they weren’t working, they came to set, which was beautiful. I tried to do the same thing when other actors were wrapping out. If it was their day, you would go to set to say good-bye.”
“It was really hard. I won’t say their name or their character’s name, but one of the young people on the show wrapped this past season and everybody was a wreck. This person had grown up on the show, you know? They were a child and now they were an adult. And then they’re done.”
“It’s like we were witnessing this person saying good-bye to their childhood. I know Game of Thrones is just a TV show, la-di-da, but it was our life.”
As I previously mentioned, Peter Dinklage also discussed Tyrion Lannister and his journey:
“[Tyrion] certainly developed a deeper sense of responsibility over the course of the show. He was a pretty irresponsible character to begin with. He used his position as the outcast of his family like an adolescent would. He pushed it in their [the Lannisters’] faces.”
“The beauty of Tyrion is that he grew out of that mode in a couple of seasons and developed a strong sense of responsibility. Not morality, because he always had that, but what to do with his intelligence.”
