Peter Dinklage Sings About All Those Dead ‘Game of Thrones’ Characters
Boy, a lot of people sure do die on Game of Thrones. Westeros is a really dangerous place for pretty much every human unfortunate enough to live there. In keeping with that idea, Peter Dinklage (aka Tyrion of the House Lannister) teamed up with Coldplay to sing a song for (some of) the fallen characters. Spoilers ahead, obviously, for all five seasons.
In honor of Red Nose Day, Dinklage and the folks from Coldplay, along with a crew of backup singers, got together to sing an ode to a few of the people who’ve died on Game of Thrones — well, the most notable ones anyway. Ned Stark, Robert Baratheon and Joffrey are all honored in the song, as Dinklage charmingly makes us very aware that somehow Tyrion has outlived them all. When you think about it, Tyrion is incredibly lucky to have survived this long. Okay, it’s pretty astonishing that anyone is alive on that show.
If you aren’t familiar with Red Nose Day, the charity event has been an annual tradition in the U.K. for 30 years, bringing various film, television, music and comic celebrities together for a noble cause. The event is making its way to U.S. audiences via NBC on May 21. Among the names gathered this year: Jennifer Aniston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Peter Dinklage, Anna Kendrick and many, many more.
