“Game of Thrones” Peter Dinklage spat into his wife’s mouth before he received his award at the 2015 Emmy Awards.
Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister in GoT, won the Emmy for Best Supporting Actor.
When his name was called, Dinklage looked surprised. He leaned over to kiss his wife and then turned around to kiss her again before heading to the stage to accept his award.
WhoSay noted that the “GoT” actor may have passed to his wife the gum he was chewing the second time he kissed her. Once on stage, he admitted that he was not expecting that his name will be called.
“I wasn’t prepared at all. I was even chewing gum,” he said. Dinklage also gave a shoutout to his fellow nominees, particularly to “Better Call Saul” actor Jonathan Banks, who was the favorite to win.
This is the second Emmy for Dinklage. In 2011, he won both Emmy and Golden Globe Awards for Best Supporting Actor for his role in GoT.
