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
