US star Peter Dinklage, who portrays the sardonic self-confessed Imp in the HBO drama, has said that his character will have trust issues with Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke).
“We’ll deal with how much Daenerys can trust him [to stay on her side against the Lannisters],” the 48-year-old Golden Globe star said.
He went on to tell TV Guide: “But he’s smitten with his employer. How good can he be at his job while having those feelings?”
Peter’s words suggest that there is going to be some big conflict between the Tyrion and his The Mother of Dragons over being a Lannister.
Tyrion’s family has always been an issue and something which he has always been conflicted about, so it seems logical that it would finally been addressed now that he has returned to Westeros.
Now that the battle lines have been drawn, Tyrion is firmly facing against his own family and siblings Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei (Lena Headey).

But he’s smitten with his employer. How good can he be at his job while having those feelings?
However, it looks like his feelings for Daenerys could also potentially colour his judgement when he battles against the Lannisters as well as potentially the White Walkers.
This is the first time that it has been revealed that Tyrion could have romantic feelings for Daenerys – but will she reciprocate his feelings or will it be an unrequited love?
The interview comes as Danish star Nikolaj, 46, revealed that there was going to be a big death on a beach.
Speaking to Marie Claire, the 46-year-old actor said that filming was disrupted by drones during a crucial moment, described by the magazine as a “revealing death scene”.

“Last year, they were shooting in San Sebastián and suddenly there was a drone,” he told the publication.
The Danish actor went on to say: “People started throwing rocks at it until they realised that it was their drone. They were shooting scenes with it.”
Could this be the end for the Kingslayer or will it be someone else who gets the chop?
