Welp! There’s a headline I bet you thought you’d never read in a million and one years. Apparently the real life Tyrion Lannister, Peter Dinklage had a hand in making Jamie Dornan the BDSM lord that he is in the final Fifty Shades of Grey film.
By helping him practice lines, I mean / hope.
During his appearance on Stephen Colbert‘s show, Dinklage revealed that the unlikely pair became close pals on the set of their upcoming HBO movie My Dinner With Hervé which was filmed around the same time as re-shoots for Fifty Shades Freed.
Whenever they had down time, Dinklage would pop into Dornan’s trailer to help him prep for his role as sex fiend Christian Grey by reading lines with him.
“I would read the Dakota Johnson parts,” he told the host and comedian during his appearance on The Late Show.
“I nailed it,” he added. “I really did.”
On behalf of all the gals and guys across the globe who got a major kick out of Dornan’s portrayal of Grey, I’d like to thank Dinklage for the minor but ultimately important role he played in the magic.
