Yes! We’ve waited. We’ve petitioned. And now, it’s finally happening! Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister on HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ will be hosting ‘Saturday Night Live‘ this weekend with musical guest, Gwen Stefani. Dinklage has previously appeared in cameos during SNL skits but, never as host of the show.
In the below promo with SNL cast member Cecily Strong, Dinklage declares, “Summer is coming!” while Strong, who is “a bit of a nerd”, asks about his role on GoT, “So you play Tyrone on Game of Thorns. How has that been for the last 10 years?”
Check out the promo and be sure to tune in this weekend to watch ‘Tyrion’ take the SNL stage! ‘Game of Thrones‘ season 6 returns to HBO on Sunday, April 24th at 9 p.m.
