"It's been about 10 years, all said and done, since the moment I met Dave and Dan until right now," Dinklage said while recalling his meeting with series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

"I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I knew that David and Dan were quite brilliant. Ten years of absolute sweat, but 10 years of the most incredible, talented, funniest motherf**king people -- hey, it's over, I don't care -- I've ever been lucky enough to work with," added the actor, who was born with dwarfism.

"We did nothing but sweat, we did nothing but laugh. Dave and Dan, we literally walked through fire and ice for you. Literally. And I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Thank you," he said.
