Bio:

Peter Hayden Dinklage was born in Morristown, New Jersey, to Diane (Hayden), an elementary school teacher, and John Carl Dinklage, an insurance salesman. He is of German, Irish, and English descent. In 1991, he received a degree in drama from Bennington College and began his career. He continues to work in the theatre with roles in "The Killing Act", "Imperfect Love", and "Richard III".

Peter Dinklage received acclaim for his first film, Living in Oblivion (1995), where he played an actor frustrated with the limited and caricatured roles offered to dwarf actors. In 2003, he starred in The Station Agent (2003), written and directed by Tom McCarthy. The movie received critical praise and Peter was nominated for best actor at the "Screen Actors Guild" and "Independent Spirit Awards". He played "Miles Finch", an acclaimed children's book author, in Elf (2003). The English Death at a Funeral (2007) and American Death at a Funeral (2010), Penelope (2006) and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008) are a few more of his feature films.

He had recurring appearances in such television shows as HBO's Entourage (2004) and ABC's Life As We Know It (2004). He played a larger role in the critically-acclaimed, yet short-lived CBS show, Threshold (2005). In 2011, he landed a primary role, as "Tyrion Lannister", on the HBO series, Game of Thrones (2011). Tyrion's wit made him a favorite character on the series. At The 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards (2011) and The 67th Primetime Emmy Awards (2015), Peter Dinklage won 2 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category for his role as "Tyrion Lannister".
