Dinklage meets Lassie

Post categories:

Crippled Monkey | 00:00 UK time, Monday, 23 May 2005

We saw him in Elf and in The Station Agent; he also played Richard III on Broadway. Well, now he's gone canine.

Peter Dinklage starts filming the remake of Lassie Come Home today. It is a seven week shoot in Ireland and the Isle of Man. Dinklage plays Rowlie alongside co-stars Peter O'Toole and Samantha Morton. It is directed by Charles Sturridge (Longitude, Shackleton).

Also starring League of Gentleman's Steve Pemberton and Jemma Redgrave.

Monkey thinks it's fantastic to see an actor of restricted growth outside of Hogwarts and Middle Earth and is watching the rise of this man's career keenly. Go Peter! Oh, and there's a good interview with him here on the BBC Films site too.

I enjoyed his subtly funny performance in The Station Agent. Hopefully we'll see him in film/TV roles where his height isn't made an issue of, as he's done in the theatre.
