About the Peter Dinklage Interview

Hey everyone! Peter Dinklage here, with my buddy Blake Ross transcribing. You know me most recently as Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones, but I have been acting for nearly two decades.

I am not on Twitter (ahem), so here's my video ://

I heard about Reddit from my good friend Karyn Parsons, who played Hilary Banks on the Fresh Prince. She did an AMA last week and said it was a ton of fun. I also made an indie film a few years ago with her husband, Alex Rockwell, called "Pete Smalls is Dead."  It was about a funeral that turned into a quest. Kind of like Game of Thrones in reverse, huh?

Now I'm hoping to help Karyn and Alex hit their Kickstarter stretch goal for "Little Feet", their latest indie film about childhood: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1328225661/little-feet-coming-to-a-theater-near-you

I'm kicking in a few rewards: signed photos ($85; let me know what to write!), signed t-shirts ($100), a custom voicemail message on your phone ($300; let me know what to say!), or a Skype session where we can shoot the breeze or watch GoT together ($2000). This project is so important to me. The rough cut is truly wonderful, and the new $50,000 stretch goal will allow them to distribute the movie internationally... maybe even to Westeros?

We could also use some some of that classic Reddit ingenuity and creativity here. Those t-shirts are signed by your choice of one of the Little Feet collaborators: Karyn, Steve Buscemi, Sam Rockwell, or myself. But we don't have a design for this crazy t-shirt yet. Can you guys help us come up with concepts that somehow blend together Hilary Banks, Nucky Thompson, Tyrion Lannister and Sam Bell in one?! The Fresh Prince of the Boardwalk Empire Goes to the Moon for his Red Wedding? I'm not so sure I want to live in that universe...

Lastly, thank you to Victoria from Reddit for her guidance, and apologies to the moderators for our last-minute scheduling. I am shooting on location right now so things are just a bit crazy.

Ok, enough talk. Happy to take your questions now, and excited to try this Reddit thing out. Let's go!
