Peter Dinklage: Some ‘Game of Thrones’ characters will have ‘painful endings’
“We’re so used to the standard formula of bad guys dying and good guys living,” Dinklage told Entertainment Weekly about his reaction after reading the season 8 script. “What David and Dan have done with all this is beautiful, painful, and lovely. It takes the show somewhere that’s dangerous and contemporary with what’s going on in the world.”
David Benioff and Dan Weiss are the showrunners of the hit show. Dinklage said even though Benioff and Weiss gave some characters a “painful ending,” he is still happy with the script.
“I love how it ended up. And how it ends up for everybody. They had a beautiful gentle touch with some and a hard touch with others,” Dinklage added.
Many on social media are just hoping Dinklage’s fan favorite character, Tyrion, doesn’t die.
We riot if:
1. Arya doesn't get to kill Cersei.
2. Daenerys doesn't occupy the Iron Throne.
3. Tyrion Lannister dies.

Dinklage also admitted he was “terrified” to see how things would end for Tyrion.
“This is the first time ever that I didn’t skip to the end (of the script). Why? I was probably terrified,” Dinklage said. “I had all these ideas in my head and a version of one of them is how it ends up (for Tyrion). David and Dan have a brilliant version of what I had.”
The eighth and last season of Game of Thrones is slated to premiere on HBO April 14.
