In his fifth grade, he got to play the lead role in one of his school dramas, ‘The Velveteen Rabbit.’ The play was greeted with roaring applause and appreciation from the audience, which boosted his confidence. He continued to participate in the drama club until he graduated from ‘Delbarton School’ in 1987.

Peter-Dinklage-Net-Worth-And-Biography-career

Peter Dinklage started his career in the year 1995 with the film ‘Living in Oblivion.’ In the film, he played an actor who gets frustrated at being offered only clichéd roles because he happens to be a dwarf.

He delivered his break-out performance as an actor in the film ‘The Station Agent.’ He received a number of awards for his role as well as worldwide recognition.

He starred in the British comedy movie ‘Death at a funeral’ in 2007. The film was a huge success, which led the makers to remake an American version of it in 2010, in which Dinklage reprised his role.

In 2008, he played the role of a grumpy dwarf named Trumpkin in the popular fantasy film ‘The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.’ Many critics condemned him for playing the very stereotypical role that he has always boasted of avoiding.

His big break in television came in the year 2011 when he was selected to play Tyrion Lannister in the medieval-fantasy drama series ‘Game of Thrones,’ which is based on George R. R. Martin’s novel series, ‘A Song of Ice and Fire.’ People began to love and praise his character, so much so that his screen time was increased and with the start of the second season of the series, he was given the honor of top billing. His performance also brought along many prestigious awards to him.

In 2014, Dinklage appeared in ‘Knights of Baddassdom,’ which was a comedy-horror film. He also played the role of Boliver Trask in the movie ‘X-Men – Days of future past.’

In 2015, he appeared in the film ‘Pixels.’ Here, he played the role of an old arcade champion named Eddie Plant.

In 2018, Dinklage appeared in Marvel’s most successful franchise ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’ He played a prominent character named Eitri, a dwarf king who builds the infinity gauntlet for Thanos, the main antagonist of the movie, and Stormbreaker for Thor.

Peter donned the hat of a producer for the first time in his 2010 movie ‘Pete Smalls is Dead.’ Since then, he has produced various movies and television films.

Favorite Quotes from Peter Dinklage

“I love animals. All animals. I wouldn’t hurt a cat or a dog — or a chicken, or a cow. And I wouldn’t ask someone else to hurt them for me. That’s why I’m a vegetarian.” – Peter Dinklage

“Any swagger is just defense. When you’re reminded so much of who you are by people – not a fame thing, but with my size, constantly, growing up – you just either curl up in a corner in the dark or you wear it proudly, like armor or something. You can turn it on its head and use it yourself before anybody else gets a chance.” – Peter Dinklage

“I was fortunate enough to have an upbringing that made me more accepting of who I am.” – Peter Dinklage

“So I won’t say I’m lucky. I’m fortunate enough to find or attract very talented people. For some reason I found them, and they found me.” – Peter Dinklage 

Great Lessons from Peter Dinklage

Now that you know all about Peter Dinklage’s net worth, and how he achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the best lessons we can learn from him:

Let Them See that Their Words Can Cut You and You’ll Never Be Free of the Mockery

Being a dwarf and a reason for his mother’s death (during delivery) he is often mocked by the names ‘Imp’ and the ‘monster’. Over time he started accepting those names and even starting making fun of the same and that certainly is not the reaction that the other person might be expecting.

When they don’t get what they wanted/expected, then ‘you’ start to play with ‘their’ head.

Never Forget What You Are

The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you. YES! Once you unveil your true self to your conscious mind and accept yourself as you are, nothing can stop you from excelling.

Even if you hide it from yourself, the people around you know your limitations and they will use them against you. ACCEPT YOUR INSECURITIES and ‘wear it like armor’ when you don’t have anything to hide, you can be yourself and do things your way.

It’s Hard to Put a Leash On a Dog Once You’ve Put a Crown on Its Head

There are times when you have to pamper certain people to get your work done. You don’t really want them to throw tantrums at you, I mean, Come on! they did a favor for which you are thankful and would return it as and when needed. That is an egalitarian picture that I am painting.

Many times they start dancing on your head and there is nothing that you can do about it. So, it is better than you choose the dog wisely before putting a crown on its head.
