Peter Dinklage has been acting for a long time, but everybody now knows him for playing Tyrion Lannister on the HBO show Game of Thrones. Tyrion is a major character on the show, and Dinklage is a big reason why. He has won a variety of awards for his work on the show and is now one of the most recognizable faces on TV. Dinklage has also made some appearances on the big screen, but he is most well known for his work with Game of Thrones. Before the show returns, let’s take a look at Dinklage’s net worth.
Peter Dinklage Net Worth as of 2019: $10 Million
Dinklage started off his acting career slowly with small roles in small budget films after receiving his acting degree from Bennington College. He also made a few television appearances, but never really stuck or received any larger roles. An appearance in the 1995 film Living in Oblivion put him next to Steve Buscemi and gave him a little bit of fame.
His big break came in 2003 with his roles in The Station Agent and Elf. He became a much more recognizable face as he appeared next to some big stars. He made appearances in Entourage, Nip Tuck, 30 Rock, and other well-known television shows. He also played a large role in Death at a Funeral, both the English and American version.
When Dinklage began his role on Game of Thrones, he was still relatively unknown. But he won an Emmy for his role in 2011 and a Golden Globe in 2012 and never looked back. He won another Emmy in 2015 and has been nominated every year since 2011. His character on the show is one of the most well-liked, and he has been well compensated for it. Reports have Dinklage making $150,000 per episode and his net worth continues to increase with each season. Since he began starring in GoT, Dinklage has made appearances in movies such as Ice Age, Pixels, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and the Angry Birds Movie. His television work has been better recognized, but he is turning into a true star with his work on the big screen as well.
