Peter Dinklage Biography

Dinklage was born on June 11, 1969, in the Jersey Shore region of New Jersey, to insurance salesman John Carl Dinklage and elementary-school music teacher Diane Dinklage.

He grew raised in the historic Brookside neighborhood of Mendham Township with his parents and elder brother, Jonathan, of German and Irish origin.

He is the only person in his family that has achondroplasia.

Dinklage and his brother used to perform puppet musicals for their neighbors when they were kids.

He has referred to his brother Jonathan as the “true performer of the family,” claiming that his brother’s passion for the violin was the only thing keeping him from pursuing acting.


Dinklage made his stage debut in a fifth-grade rendition of The Velveteen Rabbit.

He was ecstatic by the show’s reception while playing the lead. He received his acting training at Delbarton School, a Catholic preparatory school for boys.

In 1984, he was motivated to pursue an acting career after seeing a production of American writer Sam Shepard’s play True West.

He subsequently attended Bennington College, where he majored in theatre and performed in a number of shows before graduating in 1991.

He resided in Williamsburg and the West Village for 20 years. He subsequently worked for a data processing firm for six years before becoming a full-time actor.


Dinklage originally struggled to obtain acting employment, in part because he refused to take roles that performers with his condition are frequently offered, such as “elves or leprechauns.”

Dinklage was cast in the comedy 13 Moons after being recommended by Buscemi to director Alexandre Rockwell (2002).

In the 2003 Tom McCarthy-directed film The Station Agent, Dinklage made his debut as Finbar McBride, a quiet, introverted, single man.

Dinklage co-starred with Vin Diesel in Sidney Lumet’s courtroom thriller Find Me Guilty in 2006.

Dinklage first starred in the 2007 British comedy film Death at a Funeral, which he reprised in the 2010 American version; the films follow a family dealing with a range of challenges following the death of their father.

Dinklage portrayed Trumpkin in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, released in 2008.

Dinklage portrays Tyrion Lannister in HBO’s fantasy drama Game of Thrones, an adaptation of author George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, from 2011 until 2019.

Dinklage provided the voice of Tyrion in Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series, a video game based on the program, in 2015.

Dinklage and his longtime manager David Ginsburg established their joint production firm Estuary Films in 2016. Estuary’s debut film is I Think We’re Alone Now.

Dinklage played gangster Roman Lunyov in the crime film I Care a Lot in 2021. Tony Sokol compared his role to Russian mobsters in various media, like Training Day and Orange Is the New Black, and his performance was lauded.

Private & early life

Dinklage married theatre director Erica Schmidt in 2005. They have two children and keep their personal life secret. In 2011, their daughter was born. In 2017, a second kid was born.

Dinklage’s face was wounded in the early 1990s while he was a member of Whizzy, a “punk-funk-rap” band. It left him with a scar that ran from his neck to his brow. He was performing at New York City’s CBGB bar when he was accidently kneed in the face and began bleeding on stage.

Dinklage defined himself as a lapsed Catholic in 2008. Dinklage has been a vegetarian since he was 16 years old.

He is an animal rights activist who supports Farm Sanctuary and has acted as a spokesperson for the organization’s Walk for Farm Animals.

He also voiced the PETA documentary Face Your Food, which advocates for a vegan diet on ethical grounds. He also starred in another PETA commercial, this time urging Game of Thrones fans to adopt from shelters rather than purchasing huskies that resemble dire wolves.
