Will Tyrion survive the long winter?
Game of Thrones will be entering their highly anticipated final season in 2019, and fans can't help but speculate on who may die. Tyrion Lannister actor Peter Dinklage recently sat down with Vulture to discuss the eighth season of HBO's hit drama, and he revealed that the imp's end may be a pleasant one.
"Without giving anything away, how did you feel about where Tyrion is left at the end of the series?" asked Vulture's David Marchese.
"I feel very, very — I’m trying to find the right word. I think he was given a very good conclusion," stated Dinklage, attempting to keep as much under wraps as possible. "No matter what that is — death can be a great way out." While that doesn't mean Tyrion will die, it doesn't mean he will survive either. A "good conclusion" can range from sacrificing his life to save others, to settling down and getting married.
Dinklage also spoke at length about wrapping up Game of Thrones, after almost a decade of playing Tyrion. "It’s always anticlimactic for the character’s last day." he began. "Nothing is shot chronologically, so you don’t get some big mountaintop scene or anything. It’s just, 'That’s a wrap on Peter Dinklage.' But as anticlimactic as it was, my last day was also beautifully bittersweet. A lot of people whom I love were on set that day. Even if they weren’t working, they came to set, which was beautiful. I tried to do the same thing when other [Game of Thrones] actors were wrapping out."
Game of Thrones season 8 will premiere on HBO in 2019.
