The New Yorker spoke with Dinklage for his new Off-Broadway play Cyrano. But the reporter interviewing couldn't help but bring up Game of Thrones and the final season backlash, which was met with a "stares blankly" response from Dinklage. Did he follow the fan response? "No," Dinklage says. "Well, everybody’s always going to have an opinion, and that means an ownership. It’s like breaking up with somebody. They get upset. I can’t speak for everybody, but my feeling is they didn’t want it to end, so a lot of people got angry. I feel like what Dave (Benioff) and Dan (Weiss) did was extraordinary. This happens. Monsters are created. And you don’t see it coming. We vote them into office. You look the other way. So for everybody to get upset because they loved a character so much and they had so much faith in that person—there were signposts all along the way for that character.''
