Peter Dinklage thinks Game of Thrones is ending at the exact right moment. With only six episodes left to go, the iconic HBO show, which will return for its eighth season in 2019, will end its run at the perfect time, Dinklage told Variety.
“It’s time,” the actor said. “Storywise, not just for all our lives. It’s the perfect time to end it. Sometimes shows stay on a little too long, the jumping-the-shark thing.”
Don’t get Dinklage wrong. He likes playing Tyrion Lannister. He apparently just doesn’t want to overstay his welcome.
“It’s bittersweet when it’s time to move on with everything,” he said. “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.”
During the interview, Dinklage said the series is about halfway through filming the final season.
