Peter Dinklage Says People Didn't Like 'GOT' Finale Because They 'Wanted Pretty White People to Ride Off Into the Sunset Together'

“They wanted the pretty white people to ride off into the sunset together,” he said of the backlash.

“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.”

He also said people were mad about the finale because it was the end of their relationship with viewers.

“It was the right time. No less, no more. You don’t want to wear out your welcome, although I’m not sure that show could have. But 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.”

Find out why he almost didn’t take his GoT role.
