When Peter Dinklage Recalled Doing Plays For $5. Said 'I Hate The Word Lucky'

Actor Peter Dinklage made his debut in 2003 with the film The Station Agent, but it was his role in the much-loved fantasy drama television series Game of Thrones that garnered him fame. Today, he's an artist known by film buffs around the world. However, his journey in the industry was no cakewalk. In fact, Dinklage worked so hard in the early stage of his career that he dislikes the word "lucky."
Peter Dinklage worked in plays for 50 bucks
In an interview with the New York Times, Dinklage once revealed, “I hate that word - ‘lucky.’ It cheapens a lot of hard work. Living in Brooklyn in an apartment without any heat and paying for dinner at the bodega with dimes, I don't think I felt myself lucky back then. Doing plays for 50 bucks and trying to be true to myself as an artist and turning down commercials where they wanted a leprechaun.”
For Peter, it was sheer hard work that helped him get the success he deserves. He had added, “Saying I was lucky negates the hard work I put in and spits on that guy who's freezing his ass off back in Brooklyn. So I won't say I'm lucky. I'm fortunate enough to find or attract very talented people. For some reason, I found them, and they found me.”
