A photo of Peter Dinklage in high school sporting a rather impressive mullet has surfaced online, and it’s probably the greatest image that your eyes will be privy to all day.
The Game Of Thrones actor, who has played the beloved Tyrion Lannister on the fantasy epic for the past four seasons, clearly spent hour after hour honing the haircut before he attended his classes – and all of that hard work obviously paid off.
The photo of Dinklage appeared on Reddit pics courtesy of the user cameroncrazy85 and it immediately provoked a frenzied response from the world wide web and went viral within hours.
You can check it out in all of its glory below:
The image was taken from the Delbarton School’s 1987 yearbook, which is an all-male Catholic school located in Morristown, New Jersey. Dinklage went on to study at Bennington College, before he began his rather successful film, television and theatre career, which truly blossomed after his breakout role in 2003’s The Station Agent.
Dinklage also showcased his love of the American playwright Sam Shepard by attaching a classic line from the scribe alongside his image. “Words are the tools of imagery in motion,” is Dinklage’s quote, which is pretty apt when you consider the profession that he ended up partaking in.
Dinklage’s future on Game Of Thrones is currently on the brink of coming to an end, after last Sunday’s The Mountain and the Viper saw the gruesome death of the latter, who Tyrion had employed as his champion for his trial by combat.
The actor, who was born with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism, previously opened up about how much he let his height affect his life growing up. “When I was younger I definitely let it get to me,” he admitted. “As an adolescent, I was bitter and angry, and I definitely put up these walls. But the older you get, you realize you just have to have a sense of humor. You just know that it’s not you problem. It’s theirs.”
