Daenerys Targaryen’s right-hand man spoke about preparing for the end of an era with Variety, saying, “It’s time. Story-wise, not just for all of our lives. It’s the perfect time to end it. Sometimes shows stay on a little too long, the jumping-the-shark thing.”
But just because Dinklage is ready to bid adieu to Tyrion doesn’t mean he’s not bummed about it. The estranged Lannister continued to say, “It’s bittersweet when it’s time to move on with everything. It’s always the sad part of our business, because you get pockets of great people for short amounts of time and then you have to move on and it’s always heartbreaking. Especially when you’ve spent more than a couple months with people.”
Dinklage has definitely spent “more than a couple months” with the GoT cast, as he confirmed they’re halfway through filming the final season. “It’s the final season, and it’s a long one so we’re taking our time,” he said.
Yeah, we noticed. Is it 2019 yet?
