Tyrion Lannister may have married Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones but this couldn’t be further from what is going on in real life. Tyrion is played by Peter Dinklage, who has been happily married to his wife Erica Schmidt for over ten years.

Dinklage and Schmidt eloped in Las Vegas in 2005. Dinklage always expresses support for his wife, who is a talented playwright and theatre director in her own right. He once said, “She’s very inspiring. She’s definitely the artist of the family. I am just the TV actor who pays the bills.” The couple has two children, born in 2011 and 2017.
