Dinklage plays Tyrion Lannister, the brother of Jaime and Cersei Lannister, in the hit HBO show.

"You just keep searching", says Dinklage.

In the category, Dinklage edged out Thrones castmate Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (whom he called "an incredible, handsome brother"); David Harbour of Stranger Things; Joseph Fiennes of The Handmaid's Tale; Mandy Patinkin for Homeland; and Matt Smith for The Crown.

Peter Dinklage admits he had "concerns" about joining Game Of Thrones. "I love you, and I share this with you because you are an unbelievable, handsome brother", exclaimed Dinklage.

Also nominated in the category were Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid's Tale), David Harbour (Stranger Things), Mandy Patinkin (Homeland), and Matt Smith (The Crown).

Game of Thrones, what with its constant violence, intense politics, and casual dragons, doesn't seem like it'd be a set abundant with hilarity and horsing around. So thank you, Erica, for putting up with me.

Many had no idea that vaping products contain nicotine that can damage a teenager's developing brain and lead to addiction. According to the FDA more than 2 million middle and high school students were using e-cigarettes in 2017.

"It was very sad", Dinklage told the publication while backstage at the Emmys. "It was very sad".

Weiss said: "A show is only as good as the people who make it, and we're blessed and lucky to have the greatest cast, the greatest crew, the greatest producers".

Many times, I had to stay there, and I would leave to go home to NY on weekends, so I really developed deep roots in the community of Ireland and some of the other countries we shot in.

Since wrapping up on set, Peter said he found it hard to say goodbye to a character he "adored".

'It was definitely hard to say goodbye, because it wasn't just saying goodbye to the show, I was saying goodbye to a life over there'.
