Ever since the Game of Thrones final season aired, the polarized response by the fans went on to spark a lot of talk amongst everyone. Time and again, the leading stars of the show have been asked about these reactions of the fans and pretty much everyone have defended it.
Recently, in an interview with The New Yorker, Dinklage, who is currently starring in Cyrano, said he didn't follow fan response to the final season of the Emmy-winning series.
"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 [the showrunners] Dave [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] did was extraordinary," Dinklage said.
About the shift in Daenerys Targaryen's character, Dinklage said, "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."
He asked everyone to look at what happened before Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and her dragon laid waste to King's Landing.
"It added up to something. There are people who've named their children Khaleesi. You've just got to maybe wait till the series finale before you get that tattoo or name your golden retriever Daenerys! I can't help you! I'm sorry. She went mad. She was driven to that, and she's a victim as well in terms of how she was treated. She went through it, and she came out angry, as a lot of us do," he said.
