Peter Dinklage Talks About Tyrion's Feelings Toward Daenerys in GAME OF THRONES
Peter Dinklage recently offered some in insight regarding the finale of Game of Thrones Season 7. There was an interesting moment that had a lot of fans speculating what Tyrion's feelings are toward the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys. If you haven't seen the Season 7 finale yet, there are spoilers ahead.
In case you need a little reminder, there was a shot in the finale that saw Tyrion lingering and listening outside Daenerys’ cabin door while she and Jon Snow were having a little business meeting... if know what I mean. Tyrion had a troubled expression on his face. Thanks to Dinklage we now have some insight into what was going through Tyrion's mind. Turns out he's got a little crush on the Mother of Dragons:
“No, ah, it’s complicated… A lot of the time with Tyrion, it’s professional and personal. Obviously, he has feelings for Daenerys. He loves her — or thinks he does. She’s awe-inspiring. He’s questioning that because he doesn’t have a good track record for falling in love. There’s jealousy wrapped up in there. And he loves Jon Snow, too. They’re the two people he has the most in common with, in a way — they’re both outsiders in their own families who have refused to follow the path their family has taken, and hopefully for the better. He’s wondering how smart of a move [Jon and Dany getting romantically involved is], because passion and politics don’t mix well. He knows the two of them getting together could be very dangerous.”
If he thinks things are complicated with this, just wait until he finds out that the two are related and that Jon has a claim to the Iron Throne. I assume that he'll find out all about that in season 8. Do you think Tyrion will end up sharing the feelings with Daenerys next season?
Game of Thrones returns for its final six episodes in 2019.
