50 Facts About Game Of Thrones
50. Peter Dinklage Was Always The First Choice For Author (Martin) & Producers (Dan & David) To Play “Tyrion Lannister”. There Wasn’t Any Audition Held For Tyrion.
I don’t think after that huge popularity, Peter (as Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones) needs any introduction. He perfectly fits his character and I don’t think any other actor could take his place. You will be surprised to read this fact that there wasn’t any audition held for the character “Tyrion Lannister”. This is because both author (George Martin) and producers (David Benioff & Dan Weiss) couldn’t think of anyone else than Peter Dinklage. He was always their first choice and will always remain.
49. Even Sean Bean Was Producers’ & Author’s First Pick. However, They Still Did Auditions With A Fear If Sean Rejects His Role
Just like Peter Dinklage, even Sean Bean was always the first choice for Martin, Dan and David but they did auditions fearing if he would reject the proposal offered to him. He plays the character of “Eddard Stark” in Game of Thrones. He not only works in theaters, television and films but also gives voice-overs for computer games and commercials.
