This could be your big chance to have an awkward run-in with Peter Dinklage

There are few celebrities bigger (or smaller, for that matter) than Peter Dinklage in 2014, and so it’s not surprising that the Game of Thrones and X-Men: Days of Future Past star’s appearances in Yorkville over the weekend caused a little bit of a stir. Dinklage is in town with Adam Sandler, shooting a Chris Columbus movie called Pixels, which IMDB says is about video-game experts who “are recruited by the military to fight 1980s-era video game characters who’ve attacked New York.” That may not be the most promising premise, but it does at least mean that Dinklage (and Sandler, and a few other famous-ish people) will be around town for the next little while, so anyone who missed their opportunity to sneak a picture of Tyrion Lannister himself may get a second chance.

Here’s what happened while Dinklage was in Yorkville.

Here’s Dinklage and a transit enforcement officer outside Bacio, on Bay Street:

Don’t pester Peter Dinklage, folks:

Referring to him as a dwarf in a dream sequence is maybe a little inappropriate, but here’s a picture of Dinklage with someone who appears to be his wife, Erica Schmidt. They’re walking on Bloor Street.
