Peter Dinklage - Peter Dinklage: 'I Haven't Read The Game Of Thrones Books'

Actor Peter Dinklage sat through a frosty interview with Game Of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin after confessing he had not read any of the author's books.

The 44 year old, who plays Tyrion Lannister in the fantasy series, recently revealed he had struggled to get through Martin's first Game of Thrones novel, because the plot was too complicated - and the revelation did not sit well with Martin.

He says, "I was in a (question and answer panel) with him, sitting right next to him and I had to confess that in front of him for the first time. (It did) not (go) well. Not well at all. But he's a very sweet man.

"(He) is probably going to kill my character off because I've mentioned that... I started to read them and I got confused."
