Peter Dinklage is a great example of how to turn body peculiarities into the main merit. Suffering from dwarfism and being only 4 ft 5 in (1.35 m) tall, this performer managed to win the hearts of millions along with earning 4 Primetime Emmys, Golden Globe, 2 SAG Awards and many other accolades.

Hailing from Mendham Township, New Jersey, Peter was raised by father John, who worked in the insurance business, and mother Diane, a teacher. He has a brother Jonathan. Peter showed amazing creative skills since childhood and started his professional path with theater.

In 1995, Dinklage debuted on the big screen in Living in Oblivion and reached fame with The Station Agent. Among his other successful movie credits are Find Me Guilty, Penelope, Underdog, Death at a Funeral, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Avengers: Infinity War plus My Dinner with Hervé.

Peter Dinklage first appeared on TV in 2001 in the Oz series. However, he achieved worldwide recognition thanks to starring in Game of Thrones. Additionally, the performer had parts in Threshold, Nip/Tuck plus 30 Rock series.

Dinklage doesn’t eat meat and encourages others to follow his example. He endorses Farm Sanctuary and PETA plus regularly participates in various campaigns.

On April 16, 2005, Peter tied knots with Erica Schmidt. In 2011, they welcomed a daughter, whose name still remains a mystery. In 2017, the spouses were blessed with a second child, but neither baby’s gender nor name was revealed.


A curious fact: you must have noticed that Peter has a face scar. It’s a result of the injury he got in the 1990s while performing at a nightclub with his band Whizzy.
