Tyrion from Game of Thrones loves hummus as much as you do

We always knew he was a cool guy.


Peter Dinklage, aka Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones has revealed how much he loves the stuff during an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit.

The actor took part in the Q&A because he heard it was a “ton of fun” and in order to help his friend (who just happens to be Hilary Banks from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air) to promote a kickstarter project for her new film.

Asked by a fan to reveal a little known fact about himself, Dinklage replied:

I love hummus.

When praised for answering the more obscure questions he went on to reiterate:

I just figure that there are already a million mainstream places to check if someone wants to know whether I’ve read the book series. I’m enjoying this as a place to weigh in on other, more important matters. Like hummus.

Other things we learned about Dinklage include:

  • He doesn’t brush his hair. He doesn’t even own a brush
  • The funniest person on the Game of Thrones set is Irish actor Conleth Hill, who plays Lord Varys
  • If he could have a superpower it would be flying
  • His favourite Game of Thrones blooper is filthy
  • His advice: Perseverence + talent = luck
  • He thinks pizza without cheese is abhorrent (and he’s right)
  • He became a vegetarian for a girl
