Tomorrow, April 1, is the premiere of the second season of Game of Thrones. I am a fan. In Season 1, there were gory and racy scenes that I was not used to but I survived them. I know that there will be more of those horrible scenes this season yet I am looking forward to the watching the series. One of the characters I love in the show (and in the book) is Tyrion Lannister played by Peter Dinklage.
When he won the Golden Globes as the outstanding drama actor in a drama series, I decided to look for his other films and I found “The Station Agent”. While I was watching it, my aunt came up to me and asked what I was watching. I told her that I am watching a movie of Peter Dinklage, Tyrion in Game of Thrones. My aunt watched the movie with me. She was able to watch the last episode of Game of Thrones. She said, “He has a nice voice.” I think that what made him effective as Tyrion Lannister. Well, he fits the physical description in the book but it takes more than the looks to play a character. He played the sharp Tyrion Lannister so well that he now has legions of fans.

I still have not finished reading the books.
I am almost done with the 4th book, A Feast of Crows. I hope to finish today. That is something I can do while I shut down for Earth Hour tonight. ( I read from a mobile device.)
