British Accents in Game of Thrones: Does Peter Dinklage have a believable accent?

  • Yes, Peter Dinklage's accent in Game of Thrones is believable

    The fantasy series "Game of Thrones" might be a drama with dragons thrown in, but one thing keeps it grounded: the authenticity and commitment of each actor to their craft. In the case of Peter Dinklage, this comes out in his accent. He might be the only American lead on the show, but you'd never guess that when you tune in each week: his British accent is pitch-perfect.

  • Dinklage's acting and accent are great.

    I'm a huge Game of Thrones fan, and I think the acting and the accents are both great. I've never thought that Peter Dinklage's accent was not believable on the show. He blends right in, which is the best sign of a good accent. He's an excellent actor, and the people who are complaining are probably just jealous.

  • He is a good actor.

    I do not watch Game of Thrones but I have seen clips and heard a lot of great things. As far as Peter Dinklage goes he is an exceptional actor and I believe he has a believable accent. A true actor can become a role and I feel that Dinklage has that power as an actor.

  • Sometimes, Dinklage's accent comes off as too forced.

    As iconic a character as Tyrion Lannister is in "Game of Thrones", Peter Dinklage's accent when playing him tends to fluctuate between his native American accent and an overly-forced RP accent. The pronunciation of the word "can't" tends to have an overemphasis on the vowel sound. In the first season, he was still getting used to the role, but has become better over time.
