‘Game of Thrones’ star Peter Dinklage also dislikes selfies
Add “Game of Thrones” star Peter Dinklage to the list of celebrities who are not fond of taking selfies with fans.
With the growing popularity of self-photographs becoming modern-day mementos for most people, the 47-year-old actor shared his wisdom regarding the matter.
Instead of capturing images with cameras, the New Jersey, USA-native said people are better off just enjoying and living in the moment.
“People taking pictures, especially in a place like this, they want proof of a memory but they don’t actually experience something to remember,” Dinklage told the Belfast Telegraph.
“It’s sort of strange. ‘Can I have your picture?’ But they don’t really meet you. It’s just a sort of thing that’s happening now that’s replacing an experience, a memory that you will have–instead it’s just the memory of a photo,” he explained.
“Beauty and the Beast” actress Emma Watson also expressed similar sentiments about obliging fans for selfies, particularly about her personal privacy.
Dinklage, meanwhile, will soon return to television as the fan favorite Tyrion Lannister in HBO’s critically acclaimed series. The seventh season of “Game of Thrones” premieres on July 16. Khristian Ibarrola /ra
