Okay, Peter Dinklage didn’t actually say “fuck off”… but, he pretty much did. And honestly, at this point, you would think he is probably tired of talking about it — Dinklage seems he is never acting, that he is just a miserable dude that is unhappy about things all the time — so it all checks out.

First, the ending of Game of Thrones was obviously one of the worst endings of any show ever… but Dinklage trying to spin it into something poignant and brilliant is annoying. It sucked.

Anyways, he was doing some interview about some new project with the NY Times — don’t care what the movie was — and was (of course) asked about the ending of Thrones.

He went off:

“They wanted the pretty white people to ride off into the sunset together,” he replied, and then added, “By the way, it’s fiction. There’s dragons in it. Move on.”

… and then added…

“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 continued, “One of my favorite moments was when the dragon burned the throne because it sort of just killed that whole conversation, which is really irreverent and kind of brilliant on behalf of the show’s creators: ‘Shut up, it’s not about that.'”

… and then added…

“They constantly did that, where you thought one thing and they delivered another. Everybody had their own stories going on while watching that show, but nobody’s was as good as what the show delivered, I think.” He kept talking, “I think the reason there was some backlash about the ending is because they were angry at us for breaking up with them.”

… and then added…

“We were going off the air and they didn’t know what to do with their Sunday nights anymore,” he continued. “They wanted more, so they backlashed about that. We had to end when we did, because what the show was really good at was breaking preconceived notions: Villains became heroes, and heroes became villains.”

… and then added…

“If you know your history, when you track the progress of tyrants, they don’t start off as tyrants. I’m talking about, spoiler alert, what happened at the end of Game of Thrones with that character change,” he said. “It’s gradual, and I loved how power corrupted these people. What happens to your moral compass when you get a taste of power? Human beings are complicated characters, you know?”

For a guy who is annoyed with talking about the show he certainly did not stop talking about it in the interview about another movie.

Maybe ole Pete needs to ‘Move On’ … shit.
