Peter Dinklage Reveals Why He Thinks Fans Hated Game of Thrones' Final Season

Peter Dinklage is revealing why he believes there was such a fan backlash to season eight of Game of Thrones. He played Tyrion Lannister during all 8 seasons of the show.

“Well, everybody’s always going to have an opinion, and that means an ownership. It’s like breaking up with somebody. They get upset. I can’t speak for everybody, but my feeling is they didn’t want it to end, so a lot of people got angry. I feel like what [the showrunners] Dave [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] did was extraordinary. This happens. Monsters are created. And you don’t see it coming. We vote them into office. You look the other way,” Peter told the New Yorker.

He continued, “So for everybody to get upset because they loved a character so much and they had so much faith in that person—there were signposts all along the way for that character.”

There was actually an alternate ending filmed to the final season.
