Peter Dinklage Shares Opinion On GoT Sequel Series, House Of The Dragon

The ending of Game of Thrones left a bitter taste in fans mouths. But that doesn’t mean it’s sequel series, House of the Dragon, will suffer the same fate. I can’t wait to see it. The actor who played Tyrion Lannister in GoT, Peter Dinklage, shares his thoughts on the House of the Dragon on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast.

Peter Dinklage’s Thoughts On The Prequel

During the podcast (quote provided by The Hollywood Reporter), Dinklage shared:

I have an opinion. Make something — I think it is going to be a really good show. The director and producer of it worked on our show, and I think it’s going to be really f***ing good. But, they took a risk on our show, HBO did. They took a huge risk on our show. It was a slow start, but why don’t they do that again? This isn’t a risk. It’s a proven thing that works.

Dinklage Strikes A Blow To The Fans

Back in December, Dinklage put his foot in his mouth during an interview with The New York Times about the fans dislike of the ending of GoT:

I think the reason there was some backlash about the ending is because they were angry at us for breaking up with them. We were going off the air and they didn’t know what to do with their Sunday nights anymore. They wanted more, so they backlashed about that.

They wanted the pretty white people to ride off into the sunset together. By the way, it’s fiction. There’s dragons in it. Move on. No, but the show subverts what you think, and that’s what I love about it. Yeah, it was called Game of Thrones, but at the end, the whole dialogue when people would approach me on the street was, ‘Who’s going to be on the throne?’ I don’t know why that was their takeaway because the show really was more than that.

I can’t speak for everybody, but my feeling is they didn’t want it to end, so a lot of people got angry.

Umm… What?

No, man. The choice on “who got the chair” was a trash idea and Dani and Jon’s relationship was incestuous garbage with no chemistry and shitty dialogue. I didn’t want them to “ride off into the sunset together.” Jeez! I’m suffering from second-hand embarrassment. We wanted death and carnage, but for it to make sense. Happily ever after in GoT? No, thanks. Also, a series that drags on too long turns sour, so we didn’t want the series to keep going, but to end well. That’s a nice way of saying it.

Even though the last two seasons of Game of Thrones weren’t great, I’m looking forward to House of the Dragon. It should be released sometime this year.
