Remember Tyrion Lannister From Game of Thrones? Meet His Wife

Source: (Find Out All About Peter Dinklage’s Wife, Erica Schmidt, Who Also Wrote the Script for the Game of Thrones Star’s Next Movie, Cyrano!)


Peter Dinklage is most recognized for his role as the witty, complicated antihero Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones, for which he won four Emmys. But now, with a new musical film adaptation of the love classic Cyrano, he's breaking into leading-man territory—and the script was written by his wife, playwright and theater director Erica Schmidt.

Although Dinklage is notorious for keeping his personal life quiet and isn't on social media, now that he and his wife have collaborated on such a high-profile project, we're getting a better look at this remarkable duo.

Is Peter Dinklage married or unmarried?

Dinklage did marry Schmidt in 2005. In a 2015 interview with The Guardian, he raved about his wife after a decade of marriage, calling her "wonderful." She enjoys theater. Unlike many others in our field, for whom film is the final objective, she holds theater in high regard. It's not a game; it's a work of art." Schmidt clearly inspires him with his regard, love, and respect. He went on to say, "She's incredibly encouraging." "She is unquestionably the family's artist... "I'm just a TV actor trying to make ends meet."

Although some may think their height difference makes them an odd couple, Schmidt disagrees. "What's awkward is that Pete is an extremely attractive, personable, and hilarious man, but when he does a magazine or whatever, it's like, 'Isn't it incredible he's four feet five inches tall and sexy?' In 2012, she told Rolling Stone, "You know, that's just who Pete is." "And now it's up to the rest of the world to catch up."

Erica Schmidt, who is Peter Dinklage's wife?

Schmidt is a multi-award-winning playwright and theatrical director who wrote and directed the 2019 adaption Mac Beth. She also wrote and produced a musical theater adaptation of the 1897 French comedy Cyrano de Bergerac, which serves as the inspiration for Dinklage's new star vehicle.
