Dinklage was on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ promoting his new film, 'My Dinner with Hervé', which the actor explained is based on an interview which the director-writer, Sacha Gervasi, conducted with French actor Hervé Villechaize, before he committed suicide in 1993.
Dinklage plays Hervé in the movie while Dornan plays journalist Danny Tate and you can see the trailer from the TV movie below:
After sharing a clip from the film, Dinklage jokes that it’s called ‘Thirty Shades Freed, Jamie Dornan’ after which Colbert asked him about the difference between the ‘Game of Thrones’ fans and ‘Fifty Shades’ fans, given both are “very obsessive, cultish fans” and both the TV series and movie franchise feature “a lot of fairly upsetting sex.”
“I think the ‘Game of Thrones’ fans would take issue with comparing the two, because ‘Game of Thrones fans are very specific and lovely,” Dinklage said, to cheers from the audience. “‘Fifty Shades fans have issues. It’s all very supressed issues, I think.”
The ‘GOT’ star also revealed that he read lines from ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ with Jamie Dornan in their dressing room when the actor was called back to do some reshoots for the film.
“I would read the Dakota Johnson parts,” he explained. “I was just helping a friend learn lines. I nailed it!”
“I think that’s one of the lines,” Colbert joked.
“From both ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Fifty Shades’, yes,” Dinklage added.
Colbert also asked the actor about whether the ending to ‘GOT’ is happy, to which Dinklage answered “Suuuurrrreee….”, adding “I’m a terrible actor but I’ve perfected these responses.” He also said that Dornan came to the 'GOT' wrap party.
