Game of Thrones Star Peter Dinklage Is a Vegetarian and an Animal Lover
Super-talented Emmy winner Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister on HBO's Game of Thrones, has been a vegetarian since he was 16 years old. As a dedicated animal lover, Peter is the national spokesperson for Farm Sanctuary's Walk for Farm Animals. On the way America views and treats farm animals, he says, “Numerous studies have shown that cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, and other farm animals possess the same intelligence and capacity for fear, pain, and joy as dogs and cats, yet the meat industry uses expensive ad campaigns and clever marketing to hide the reality that animals used for food are treated like unfeeling machinery. Fortunately, we can think for ourselves and challenge the status quo by making choices that don’t hurt animals."
