Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister)
Peter Dinklage caught the acting bug years before he started playing Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones. In fact, he’s been acting since he was in the fifth grade. He has since appeared in such films as the comedy Elf, the crime film Find Me Guilty, the superhero comedy Underdog, the fantasy film The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, and the Marvel comics-based film X-Men: Days of Future Past. For his work as Tyrion Lannister, though, he earned two Emmy awards and a Golden Globe, and is now one of the highest-paid actors on television.
