Peter Dinklage Loves Pranking His ‘Game Of Thrones’ Co-Stars By Playing Dead

Even the cast of “Game Of Thrones” need a break from their often-dark drama.

Peter Dinklage, who just picked up the Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama for his role as Tyrion Lannister on the series, tells Jimmy Kimmel the cast love to pull pranks on set. The actor reveals he has one very special go-to prank.

“I like to pretend I’m dead,” he says during his appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”. “It’s always just…it’s fun.”

And it’s not just his cast mates who get to discover the “dead” Dinklage.

“The wardrobe person or the producers. Just my legs sprawled out in the trailer,” he says, explaining his technique. “You gotta get really smushed on the floor or in a very awkward position.”

And Dinklage is really committed to the prank, telling Kimmel he can wait in his “dead” position “for hours.”

“We have a lot of time on set,” Dinklage adds.
