I recently discovered that Peter Dinklage is a vegan, which means that he neither eats meat nor does he eat any products produced by animals, like milk and honey.

So what does he eat in scenes where you see him biting off a bone?

    Lena Headey (who plays Cersei) is also a long-time vegetarian. Maybe it runs in the family? ;-) – Rand al'Thor Oct 11 '16 at 12:14

    The answer below shows that he is actually vegetarian, not vegan. Do you have some source that contradicts that? – Thunderforge Oct 11 '16 at 21:35
  • The word "vegan" is used in his german entry on Wikipedia – Marv Oct 12 '16 at 6:46

    Vegetarian since 16, vegan since 2014 according to: contactmusic.net/game-of-thrones/news/… (which is the source quoted in the German wikipedia). – Martin Bonner Oct 12 '16 at 6:52

Peter Dinklage is a vegetarian. He has been a meatless eater since the age of 16.

In all of the scenes that require him to be eating meat with his dear family in King’s Landing, Dinklage eats tofu or fake meats instead.

Source 1 (emphasis mine)

He quotes:

"I wouldn't hurt a cat or a dog – or a chicken or a cow. And I wouldn't ask someone else to hurt them for me. That's why I'm a vegetarian."

Source 2

  • So he could still drink milk/eat honey or consume other animal products that don't involve harming animals. – JAB Oct 11 '16 at 21:09

    @JAB exactly, that's the difference between Vegetarian and Vegan. – TaylorAllred Oct 11 '16 at 21:52
  • @TaylorAllred I pointed that out because, as Thunderforge noted, the question says he is a vegan but the answer says vegetarian. – JAB Oct 11 '16 at 21:54

    As I commented above, he is now vegan: contactmusic.net/game-of-thrones/news/… – Martin Bonner Oct 12 '16 at 6:53
