Perhaps, in one of those, you are one of the many fans of George RR Martin they weren’t exactly thrilled with the way HBO’s sprawling fantasy series game of Thrones ended in 2019.
The final episode, The Iron Throne, drew more than 13.61 million viewers in May 2019, though not all were happy, as indicated by the firestorm on social media that night and into the following week. Author George RR Martin even said that his ending would be “different” from the next series once he finished the books of Song of ice and fire).
The actor Peter dinklage, who played Tyrion Lannister on HBO’s George RR Martin series, in a recent interview with the The New York Times about his new movie Cyrano answered the inevitable question about the end of game of Thrones. And the actor, who won four Primetime Emmys Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series precisely because of game of Thrones and is now nominated for a Critics Choice Award and a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Cyrano, did not keep quiet.

“They wanted beautiful white people to ride into the sunset together,” he said of any fan fights about the finale, in which (SPOILER ALERT) Bran Stark becomes the King of Westeros, a twist that came. directly from Martin himself.
“There are dragons …”
Dinklage continued, “By the way, it’s fiction. There are dragons in it. Let’s move on,” adding after a laugh, “No, but the show subverts what you think, and that’s what I love about it. Yes, it was called Game of ThronesBut in the end, all the dialogue when people approached me on the street was: ‘Who is going to be on the throne?’ I don’t know why that was its conclusion because the show really was more than that. “

Dinklage also talked about one of his favorite moments in the finale, which served as episode 73 at the end of the show’s eighth season.
“One of my favorite moments was when the dragon burned the throne, because it ended all that conversation, which is really irreverent and brilliant on behalf of the creators of the show: ‘Shut up, it’s not about that,'” he said. “They constantly did that, where you thought one thing, they gave you another. Everyone had their own stories while watching that show, but I don’t think anyone was as good as what the show delivered. “

Cyrano premiered in the United States on December 7 (to enter the Oscar nominations) and will expand to more theaters on January 28 (Argentina would arrive on February 24), and was scored (and presumably will be) in several of the film awards that will be awarded in early 2022.
While Joe Wright’s new film retains the period setting of Edmond Rostand’s 1897 play on which it was based, Dinklage sees many current parallels. “It is exactly what we are doing today with online dating, where you put a profile of yourself that is not necessarily true to who you are,” he said. “We all pretend to be other people to varying degrees.”
