Game Of Thrones Season 4: Lena Heady And Peter Dinklage Chat About Hit Series

Game of Thrones will soon debut its fourth season and actress Lena Heady says the "stakes are higher than they have ever been."

Talking to Access Hollywood, the shows star revealed that the series is only getting "better and better" as it progresses.

During a post-Emmy discussion Peter Dinklage also revealed that his character, Tyrion Lannister, will continue their on-screen relationship with Sansa Stark. Peter says of that decision: "It's respectful." Dinklage also notes that the arranged marriage Tywin Lannister sprung on him in Season 3 with the noble lady is "not filled with passion."

Dinklage says he has enjoyed working with Sophie Turner, 17, who plays his TV bride.

"The opportunity to work with Sophie Turner who plays Sansa, I'm working with her a great deal and I love every minute of that," he said. "She's incredible."

While the entire crew of Game of Thrones have spoken seriously about the upcoming season, they are also refusing to take themselves too seriously in the off-season.

Dinklage recently appeared on an episode of Sesame Street where he sang about the popular children's game Simon Says.

You may recall that before landing his role on Game of Thrones Dinklage appeared in a number of kid friendly movies including The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. He also voiced Captian Gutt on the popular movie Ice Age: Continental Drift.

With a little girl, Zelig, of his own we aren't surprised Dinklage would appear on GoT and then follow it up with a Sesame Street appearance.

Fans of Game of Thrones are eagerly awaiting the new season, this writer included. For now, plot lines and other details are being kept under wraps.
